*Socal Danger Zones*

I think it would be helpful to start a thread where we share general areas where we get those fun "fix it" tickets... so we know what to look out for when we're driving around.

I'll start with mine

La Brea area near Grove...had a bike cop pull a full u-turn to give me my fix-it ticket for "headlight out" (DRL, which aren't required)

If this thread takes off, we'll start a Norcal one too

101 between Camarillo and Oxnard is one of the heaviest ticketed areas on the 101.

For the West LA folks, motorcycle cops are always hiding on Sawtelle and Sepulveda between Exposition and National. Don't speed!

I've commuted everywhere in SoCal, and lived almost everywhere. Here are some locations where the CHP is always looking to nail you:

- Any toll road, especially on the often steep downhill portions, such as the North 241 from the toll plaza to the 91, and the south 241 from the toll plaza to the 261.
- The 405 between the 5 and Culver
- The 5 through Camp Pendleton down through North SD County
- The 15 from Temecula to Escondido
- The 210 from Pasadena up through Sylmar
- The 133 Northbound when you come out of Laguna Canyon right before the 405

WHENEVER you go to LAX, they have cameras that are on you as soon as you come in and if you don't have front plates your guaranteed a ticket unless your lucky.

I commute regularly down the 405S from Culver down to the 5S past Avery.. and every day, I get regular Ka alerts... so there's always a cop hiding or pulling someone over.. So, don't speed down the 5S

There's usually a CHP cruiser hiding at the end of the tunnel on the right on the 105-W/405-S interchange.
