Santee, California Speed Traps
Motorcycle cop with an instant-on radar gun near the signalized intersection about 1 mile south of Mast Blvd on Magnolia Ave., northbound. 45 MPH zone, seems to target groups of cars barley over the limit (48-50 MPH)picks one or two out to ticket.
Motorcycle police hide in the trees and along side streets between Cuyamaca and Halberns signal lights, along Mast Boulevard, especially on the curve. The speed limit is 40mph. Mast Boulevard has varying speed limits (35 to 40) from the 52 fwy to the dead end. Tickets are issued all along Mast Boulevard with emphasis on that particular hill/curve.
The motor officer (San Diego County Sherriff) parks their motorcycle on the sidewalk about 30 feet down Braverman then stand on the sidewalk at the intersection of Braverman and Magnolia Ave. They then tag the vehicles travelling north on Magnolia Ave and once the speed is recorded they step into the middle of the street to pull the vehicle over. Not safe for them or the driver and certainly a trap.
Mast Blvd between Halberns Street and Cuyamaca Street on the east bound side of Mast Blvd primarily. The motorcycle officers (San Diego County Sherriff) park their motorcycles between two cars and walk forward a couple of cars away. They then use their radar to gather your speed and step into the middle of the road to stop you. There vehicles are hidden from view thus you never know they are in the area until they step out into the middle of the street to stop you.
East bound on Mast Blvd. Officers wait in the church parking lot across the street from the Jack in the Box.
