Tehachapi, California Speed Traps
CHP sits facing eastbound on Highline Rd, near Curry Rd in late afternoon. Westbound Highline Rd. traffic get tagged as they crest the small hill near Curry Rd. I have not been stopped, but have seen 3 motorists (on different days) get nailed.
You pick up speed coming off the mountain. They get at the bottom on the flats.
Lately CHP cruisers are posturing on the weigh station exit, and somehow are notified about speeders going past the weigh station. Once notified, a cruiser then darts out of the weigh station to apprehend the speeder. I was doing 4 over the speed limit and got a warning.
There is a CHP that sits on the south side of the intersection on Westwood facing north bound. He is writes tickets to people who don’t completly stop. There is also a Sheriff that sits in Meadow Brook Park parking lot watching for the same thing.
The Bear Valley Springs police usually have one of their trucks on the side of the road near the cross street of Bear valley rd/Cumberland rd. I’ve seen them there at all times of day/night. They’re a small town rural bored force with little to no crime. So, they will pull over speeders coming down the hill on Bear Valley. The speed limit is 45mph, but with the fairly steep incline of the road its easy to go way faster. Since many accidents occur on this hill dubbed ‘domino hill’ due to the annual multi-car pileups from winter snow/ice, its not unreasonable to go slow. If you’re in Bear Valley Springs, drive the speed limit for the good of your driving record and personal safety.
