Sierra, California Speed Traps
The Fix is in….
SMPD is taking advantage of a stacked deck when it comes to banging out speeding tickets to cars heading westbound on Grandview just west of Santa Anita. The posted speed limit is 30 MPH. They camp out a the bottom of (ski jump-like hill where the laws of gravity make it very easy for a responsible motorist to suddenly find themselves violating the law. I have received two tickets in the last 20 years (400,000 miles of driving). BOTH HAVE BEEN AT THIS LOCATION IN THE LAST SIX MONTHS. The second being last Saturday night (42 mph). Likewise my wife, who has never received a citation in her life was pulled over at this location (She was let go with a warning….it’s a girl thing, 45 mph).
I am all for public safety…I am also all for the city raising revenue responsibly…The Grandview Speed Trap is just that a TRAP It’s unfair and unreasonable.
