I-5 Southbound at Lake Blvd onramp

Redding, CaliforniaMar 14, 20110 Comments

I-5 southbound, as you go over 299E (Lake Blvd), the onramp is on your right for people coming off Lake Blvd, getting on southbound I-5, and at the end of the onramp is a gravel turnout that is behind a raised grassy mound. CHP park their vehicles behind the mound where they are not visible, and then the officer steps out from the mound just far enough so that he/she can radar people coming southbound I-5. That stretch of I-5 is a downhill grade. You will pick up speed even if on cruise. They also radar people coming on the onramp accelerating, who may find themselves pinched by a big rig, punch it to get around, and wham! at the end of the onramp it’s too late. I travel this stretch often. As you come down the stretch of I-5, you cannot see the officer at all, and then you will see half of their body and the radar gun aiming at you. I have not seen them radar in this area until beginning about January 2011.
