Seal Beach, California Speed Traps
On Seal Beach Blvd between PCH and Electric Ave cops hide in the turnout in front of the Naval Weapons Base. They’re usually in their all white Jeeps and often park in pairs to pick off cars as they speed in and out of the neighborhood.
Its not a speed trap, but I’ve seen 3 DUI checkpoints set up here in the past few months..so if you’ve had a glass of wine with dinner and you need to go South on PCH from Long Beach or Belmont Shore on a Friday or Saturday night, be prepared.
There is a driveway to the Naval Weapons Station on the northbound side of PCH halfway over the bridge between Sunset and Seal Beach, Seal Beach Police hides to catch speeders there. Posted limit is 50 MPH, but people regularly exceed that.
west bound on pch just past main st. cop sits in bank parking lot on n. side of pch with radar. people accelerate thru light at pch/main and get nailed.
This stretch of road through the Seal Beach Naval Weapons station a notorious speed trap. Posted speed limit is 55. But, the road is 5 lanes wide (2 each way plus suicide lane) and there are no turns or side streets. So traffic speeds actually exceed 65. Motorcycle officer is usually hiding behind a power pole on the north shoulder, a few hundred meters before the rail crossing near Seal Beach Blvd. He’s looking for speeders headed west on Westminster.
