Yorba Linda, California Speed Traps
Kodiak Mountain Road near Alpine Circle
Motorcycle patrolman sits on east side of street and nabs residents coming down the hill. Even though it is a residential street, most people go 40 or 50 to not wear out their brakes. Officer then cites them for being only 15 to 25 mph over 25 mph speed limit. Officer is very cocky and makes uncalled for comments like "would you like someone driving 50 mph on your street?"
Oriente Avenue near Lakeview Avenue
Two or three motor troopers on BMW speed bikes are on both the north or south driveways of residences behind the bushes! The speed limit is 25 MPH and they will stop you for 3-5 MPH over the speed limit!
Esperanza Boulevard near Fairmont Connector
Motorcycle officer will sit about 1 mile east of the Fairmont Connector on north side. South side is a railroad track and no homes on either side. Very easy to go over the 50 MPH limit.
State Highway 90 near Kellogg Avenue
Coming downhill from Yorba Linda Blvd towards La Palma just after the Kellogg onramp. Another "turnout" too small for anything but the motorcycle officers that sit and laser gun the approaching traffic. As many as 3 officers at a time, one gunning and the other 2 chasing violators. Kellogg onramp crests uphill causing you to not see the officers until well after he has you in sight!
Yorba Linda Boulevard near Village Center Drive
Usually when going eastbound on this stretch of Y.L> Blvd, after passing Rio Del Oro, a Motorcycle cop will be waiting in the bushes on the Median, which has a small paved place that looks like it is meant for this very reason as it isn’t wide enough for much else. The limit is 40, but it is very easy to be going faster since Del Oro is for residential and usually lets traffic right through.
The entire stretch of Y.L. Blvd. is crawling with officers from Imperial Hwy. to La Palma, so Make sure that you drive 40, or they’ll write you up.
