^^^ OMG +10000 but they are there cause USC is there i dont think they would pull over a BMW, i think they are more on the look out for gangsters and keeping the students there safe.

crazy that you mentioned this because when i was in glendale one day driving through a small neighborhood street, i was passing by a bust they did and they had a black 2006 Honda Accord that was at the scene but i saw blue and red lights flashing from it right under the driver-side sun visor. definitely a sneaky undercover car.

City of Brea when you see a lot of rice-rockets. Apparently, they have street races out there. If you're in the wrong place at the wrong time...

- 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

I rarely get anything useful on my V1 and the only solid hits I get are by CHP...though I guess the only solid hits are Lidar hits on La Cienega headed N/S by Pico or right when are about to get on the 10 going Southbound.

K , how about

On Olympic from Beverly drive till the 405, ALWAYS cops radaring during the day will pull you over for anything.

On pico from beverly drive till 405, shitload of cops.


All of beverly hills = front license plate ticket when parked.

All of Sunset from Doheny until the 101, will get pulled over for anything.


All of Santa Monica from Doheny until fairfax, shitload of cops.

All of the city of santa monica= ridiculous number of cops.

All of glendale= ridiculous amount of cops

All of Beverly hills = ridiculous amount of cops

Recently Downtown LA's been stepping up their patrol. They now have bicycle cops giving out parking tickets. Also watch out for CHP! They now have a bunch of unmarked Dodge Chargers, all in non livery attire and colors, especially Burgundy! Only way to tell is by the Highway Patrol sticker on the back trunk and when they light you up!

+1 there are many bicycle cops in downtown LA saw one giving some lady a ticket they seem to sneak up on people. i even saw one giving a couple a ticket for jaywalking in those tiny streets around Broadway and 8th. be careful people

It's already been said but Del Mar is sooooooo bad, cops everywhere, one followed me home and gave me a ticket while i was parked on my street for not having my front plates. Crazy thing is I was already in my house and he was gone when I came out again.
