US Highway Pacific Coast near California Incline Road

Santa Monica, CaliforniaDec 02, 20060 Comments

Motorcycle police (usually in pairs) hide behind parked cars targeting the lead vehicles in southbound rush hour traffic. They can usually be found from the California Incline to the Santa Monica Pier. Be especially vigilant from late August through October (school is back in session).

Santa Monica, CaliforniaMay 27, 20050 Comments

A motorcycle cop will sit on the 20th street onramp to the 10 West freeway and pull over driver’s for speeding. The cop is difficult to spot because the onramp is elevated 35 feet and an overpass obscures view.

Santa Monica, CaliforniaMay 27, 20051 Comments

Quota-hungry motorcycle cops sit on 4th street onramp to Ocean Park Avenue East, just before the school on the north side. They will ticket you for speeding through a 25mph school zone, usually after the school has let students out.

Walgrove Road near At Airport Avenue

If you are travelling southbound on Airport Avenue and want to make a left turn onto Walgrove/23rd street between 3 and 7pm, DON’T. During rush hour there is a motorcycle cop hiding on nearby street obscured by rod iron fence making quotas.

San Vicente Boulevard near 26th Street

Santa Monica, CaliforniaMay 09, 20050 Comments

There are two things you are guaranteed as you head east from the ocean towards Brentwood: joggers and motorcycle cops. They are hanging out on side streets pretty much all the way up and down San Vicente in this area. They vary it up to keep you off guard. They especially like to get drivers heading west as they go downhill and pick up speed past Bundy.
