Ventura, California Speed Traps
He sits back from the overpass on the south side of the overpass, facing the 126 (North) roughly adjacent to the entry to the curve going onto the Eastbound 126.
He watches the Eastbound traffic and jumps on them if they are flying low.
Car waits on 126 under the Wells Avenue overpass for cars to come speeding in from Santa Paula. Because of the angle of the overpass, you can’t see the car until you go by it.
If you are traveling SB on the 101 and pass under the Oxnard Blvd Bridge be aware CHP will sit on the on ramp and picks you up on radar before you pass the ramp. Since the 101 curves to the right you cannot see him in your mirrors until you are at least ¼ mile ahead of him and by then he’s in pursuit.
After the Hwy 33 off ramp right when the 3 lanes become 2 lanes there the CHP waits hidden by the support collumns of the 33 Freeway overpass.
I used to park next close to the chainlink fence under the pepper tree and snag both east and westbound speeders; day time or night time. The speed limit is 55 mph, but the ‘frequent flyers’ were often doing 70+mph. It was like shooting ducks in a barrel. Not a good road to be speeding on because shoulders are very limited. Since I retired, I don’t know if my successor uses the ‘cherry patch’ I showed him! Writing tickets is easier than crash reports!!
