I-5 North of Redding/South of Shasta Lake

Redding, CaliforniaMar 02, 20111 Comments

While heading south on Hwy 5, I had my foot off the accelerator coasting downhill into the Redding area. I looked right (from the slow lane) and saw a fellow in the bushes/trees. Behind him were Highway Patrol cars. Oops! Speed trap! I was doing 80 in a 70 zone with cars passing me in the fast lane. I was pulled over behind another fellow getting a ticket. Behind me a semi was pulled in. At that downhill juncture, just before the flat, they could pull people over all day, and I’m sure that they do. (Two cars were pulled over on the northbound side of the freeway, so assume that this trap goes both ways.)

If you knew you were doing 80mph....why did not you slow down???? Duhhhhh.
