Santa Monica, California Speed Traps
Not a "speed trap," but there is a posted "No right turn" sign when you are on 4th Street getting on to the I-10 East. Several times a week, police officers are waiting around the corner to ticket those who turn right on a red light.
I saw 4 motorcycle patrolmen and 2 squad cars in the general area within a 15 minute timespan. They patrol like locusts during midday by Third Street Promenade. I saw them give three tickets within 5 minutes. Don’t really know what the offenses were. Very bad near the Post Office (Arizona & 5th).
The Santa Monica PD enforces both directions, East and West. Be careful.
One or two motorcycle officers parked on the side streets between 26th and 7th Street ticketing westbound traffic.
It’s usually a SMPD motorcycle cop in the parking lot at the Post Office on Neilson Way (by the Shores apartments). They usually park in the south lot too far back to be seen until it’s too late.
