Dumbarton Bridge SR 84 Westbound

Newark, CaliforniaApr 23, 20101 Comments

Between the toll plaza and the bridge, one mile plus, 3-lanes divided hwy with shoulder, looks like a freeway. CHP bushwacks travelers with radar guns as they accelerate from the toll plaza. Natural speed is 65 mph but limit is set at 55. Only one sign of ordinary size, easily unnoticed. CHP has one or two units (or more) most evenings between 4 and 8 PM. and some Sat and Sunday mornings. Easy pickins for them.

Got me on this one! Ticket was $275 for 79mph. Posting is right about the sign. Very deceiving. Came out of the toll plaza that looked like continuing freeway. One sign posted for 55mph. Trying to speed up and merge 6 lanes to two you don't catch the sign. Two CHP cruisers were double teaming - one shooting the radar and then radios car #2 ahead to pull over the victim. Sometimes got two at a time. A real cash cow set up.
