Interstate 1 trans-canada / 99 near Cypress Mountain exit

West Vancouver, British ColumbiaJan 21, 20051 Comments

At the Cypress bowl road exit ramp on hwy. 1, heading westbound, there is often a speedtrap. There’s a long hill that goes down, and cars often will naturally pick up a fair amount of speed. The limit in this section is 90km/h (approx. 55mph). there’s alot of shrubbery as you come down the hill, and the emergency lane is quite wide – there will be a WVPD unit stopped there, shooting radar up the hill for unsuspecting drivers – by the time you see it, it’s too late, you’re caught. If you want to avoid this, take the cybress bowl exit ramp, and go down the other side. As you’re coming down the opposite side, if you’re in a high vehicle you might see the officer.
Better yet, take some time and go up Cypress – and drive as fast as you like, no police up the mountain!

Not quite true about no police on the mountain - on weekends, there is very often a trap located at the works yard, just before the first switchback as you begin to climb up the mountain. The limit here is 60 km, but many people in a rush up the ski hill are travelling 80+. Wait until you get past the second switchback, when there are no more pullouts or tourists.
