Walnut Creek, California Speed Traps
No right hand turns 4 – 6 PM from Homestead or Walnut Blvd onto east bound Ygnacio Valley Road. Motorcycle Officiers sit in Apartment House Driveways as many as three at a time and give one ticket after another.
Just in front of the PMI building on Oak road the Contra Costa Sheriff loves to radar and laser people driving in excess of 35MPH. Please note this area is unincorporated part of Walnut Creek and is patrolled by several different agency’s including BART police, CHP, Walnut Creek PD and the Contra Costa County sheriff. Your odds of getting a ticket in the area are very high.
The approach on Treat Blvd. to Oak Road is a common place to see motorist being pulled over for speeding as the road changes from 40 to 35 as you round the corner and many do not see the speed change. Further, several accidents have occurred at Jones Road (the road just prior to Oak Rd on Treat) due to the speed change and rapid intersection light cycle.
CHP hides behind the sound wall on the 24 east to 680 south transition. Ka-band.
Once you hit Oak Road going towards Walnut Creek from the Pleasant Hill BART Station be careful and keep your speed to 40 mph or less! This is a major road that has Walnut Creek motorcycle officers on both sides with radar guns pointed. The motorcycle officers will usually be hiding underneath a tree in a driveway.
