5 South at 73 Overpass

Heading south on the 5 Freeway, just past Avery Parkway is the 73 overpass. Many times they have an officer with a radar gun in the middle of the 5 freeway behind the large overpass pillar and then several officers on the 73 on ramp to the 5 south. You do not see the radar person until you are right there and the other cars, lined up like taxis up out of sight, will be radioed to get you. Many times I have seen up to half a dozen people pulled over between the 73 on ramp and Ortega Highway! Do not believe me? Next time you are cruising south down the 5, notice how all the locals slow down, myself included, just before the 73 overpass. I use this when traveling elsewhere as well. If a lot of people start slowing down for no apparent reason, I do too. Better safe than ticketed!!!!!
