I second the CHP cruiser behind the orange net on the 10 West. He hides in a westbound facing direction on the onramp from Overland Blvd. If you're heading east it is a non issue but you'll likely see another as you pass the last overpass before Robertson Blvd exit.

Weekday mornings after 7:30 AM there is sometimes a motorcycle policeman who uses the radar gun or laser while sitting on his bike and aiming at cars headed westbound on the 10 West. He hides under the overpass that is somewhere at or between Cloverfield to Lincoln Blvd.

I used to see the local city motorcycle cops (I think Culver City or something or the guys who patrol Palms, Cheviot Hills etc. around the Pico and Overland area on the ugly Harley Davidson bikes.

These guys set up and nab people heading southbound on Overland to hit the 10 freeway to head home post workday. Seen this guy so many times. It's a 35 mph zone so don't ever speed here.

On Olympic there are sometimes 2x bikes at a time radaring eastbound drivers heading into Century City. Right after the Ralphs on your left, the cops are up on the hill on the right as you enter the big building section of Century City.
The same kind of bike cops used to also radar the westbound drivers heading towards the 405 on Olympic just after the Ralphs, but before Beverly Glen.

South Beverly Drive by Urth Caffe, Chipotle, Coffee Bean etc between Olympic and Wilshire... Never speed here. Don't even think about jay walking. The Beverly Hills PD frequent this street for coffee and food as much as your avg BHHS student. They love to pull people over directly on this street for everything. I've seen multiple people get anything from the popular illegal u turn to grab a parking spot or the countless jay walkers.

Burton Way by the BH court house. Never speed. First of all, Beverly Hills city hall, courthouse, Fire and Police Dept are ALL right there on Rexford and Burton Way, a 35mph zone.

They radar this street by motorcycle in an alleyway, targeting eastbound drivers on Burton Way from the little alley right past Rexford when heading east on the street. It's super easy to go 45-50 in this stretch, but don't do it!

Burton is not that long anyway and it flows decent so I would just ignore cops and simply drive 35 here ALL the time. You won't get anywhere faster by being an idiot through this stretch.

Also, I think it's important to mention.....

If you commute or frequent freeways, always know where CHP offices near your routes are located. If possible, alternate your routes to avoid CHP offices.

For example, the I-405 in LA County is particularly a hotbed. Torrance CHP patrols I-710 to I-110. West LA CHP patrols I-105 to Mar Vista. Factor in LAPD at Culver City (Culver/Centinela), LAX, and West LA (Santa Monica/Purdue) and you have a heavily patrolled freeway!

The onramp/offramps near their offices are where they pull over the majority of motorists. CHP don't cruise freeways for 10+ miles looking for offenders.

Have this mindset, be vigilant and situationally aware, read threads like these to know where the CHP/LAPD campers like to hang out, and supplement with an Escort or V1 and you should significantly reduce your run-ins with the law!
