Scotts Valley, California Speed Traps
CHP and SVPD take advantage of an obscured pull off area to park and shoot RA/LIDAR on approaching SB traffic.
Scotts Valley Drive
As you come down Whispering Pines Drive and approach the 4-way stop at the entrance to Vista Del Lago, the officer is hidden on west side of the entrance. Although he can’t see the east bound cars stop, he will ticket you if you stop ahead of the sign and then roll through.
For the past 30 years this has been a favorite speed trap for Scotts Valley Police at night. They park in the driveway of the medical building and catch speeders coming off Highway 17 onto Mt. Herman Rd where the speed limit drops quickly to 35 MPH
Typically a motorcycle cop will hide in the drive by the southbound RV sales center behind the white fence, they also will use a cruiser at times NB on the drive.
