Ventura, California Speed Traps
Police Car or Motorcycle cop. Hides in little pullout where Petit deadends. Also seen on NorthBank just befor the 4-way stop and on Petit by the little park. They’re not only looking for speeders but folks who constantly roll (Don’t stop completely) thru the stop signs. Lots of tickets in this area.
Motorcycle hidden in church entrance on East side of Kimball aimed at people coming up the hill toward Foothill. Also seem black & white facing south on the West side of Kimball in the same area. Speed limit is 40 but was 50 not all that long ago.
Driving north on Seaward Avenue, just past the bridge, a motorcycle cop hides out where Channel Drive dumps you onto Seaward (and where you have to yield to join traffic). Because of the shrubbery, you can’t see him until you’ve driven past – at which point, he’s already got you in his sights. Posted speed limit is 35. There are 2 lanes and most folks drive much faster. Last year, my husband got 2 tickets there, same week (2 different days), same cop, same time of day (mid-morning). I still see him there almost daily if I’m looking for him.
I see motorcycle police hiding in front of cars parked along Harbor Blvd along the Keys frequently ticketing both directions of traffic. The speed limit is 45 through there which seems fair enough.
Motorcycle cop will sit camoflauged among the parked cars on Harbor Blvd between Peninsula and Oyster watching for speeders coming from either direction. Usually his radar is pointing toward northbound traffic, but he is on the right side and can catch you going southbound too.
