Santa Maria, California Speed Traps
Highway patrol sits in a turn out where carpool cars park. He is on clark ave. west of the off ramp He is facing the traffic driving south You can not see him from the Highway unless you know he is there.
A highway patrol sits hidden by Trees close to the entrance of the on ramp from Stowell road to Highway 101, He is heading North with a radar, I have seen him catch many a car by the next off ramp of Main St.
Highway with radar sits on the frontage road entrance as soon as you round the curve going north on 101 He tags you. This is being done in the early hours of the morning before light and throughout the evening hours also. Sometimes The highway patrol sits in the grass area Off to the right waiting for speeders to pass them. I once came upon one in the median, one in the grassy area and saw one on the southbound side as well, not sure what was going on on that day.
All Cameras have been removed from the City.
Patrol cars find hidden turn out areas all along the route; both North and South bound. They are just out of sight until it is too late. I got cited along the south coast just east of Gaviota by a CHP officer using a hand held radar. Two patrol cars were poised as chase vehicles.
