Thousand Oaks, California Speed Traps
Motorcycle cops like to hide in blind-entrance cross streets and park maintenance gateways. They are all but invisible until you are right on top of them. Usually see people stopped between Kanan Road and Valley Circle on Westlake Blvd, but have seen stops on this road all the way from Thousand Oaks Blvd. to Avenida de los Arboles. Usually go after the lane hoppers and the people going 65+mph. The limit is 50, but 60 seems to be okay.
Motorcycle cop hides between parked vehicles, in driveways, behind bushes in various locations along El Monte Rd between Erbes and Janss. Very aggressive enforcement for anyone going over 25 miles an hour.
CHP parks in the dirt at the interchange of State 23 S/B ramp (on left) to the US 101 W/B. They have an unrestricted view of vehicles on 101 thru the interchange.
Motorcycle officer parked on the SW side of the Laurelwood/Erbes intersection enforcing the 45 mph posted speed limit for south bound Erbes Rd traffic in the morning hours. The posted limit seems fair given the fact there is cross traffic coming out of the two neighborhoods that Laurelwood feeds into and this particular intersection has no traffic controls. It’s easy to be 10-15mph over the posted limit if you aren’t paying attention coming down the long steep hill that is Erbes Rd from Sunset Hills Blvd.
On Avenida de Los Arboles, between Moorpark and Rt 23 Freeway. The speed limit is set below the average traffic speed. I see many people getting tickets weekly. The TO Police love this area in the morning and many times they are working in pairs.
