I just checked around the Sacramento area and one enforcement zone has a comment about motorcycles in our favor.

"Northbound I-5 comes off an overpass and descends to the Pocket/Meadowview exit. At several different times during the day, I have seen CHP (both in cars and on motorcycles) parked on the shoulder, aiming their radar back toward the overpass. Because northbound traffic is going downhill at this point, it frequently speeds up well above the 65 mph posted limit. The motorcycles are especially hard to see, not because they hide, but because they get camouflaged by the trees and brown grass at the exit."

FYI- using radar or pacing is not a speedtrap. The legal definition of a speed trap is when a vehicle is timed for a set distance.

The majority of reasons certain areas have more traffic patrol is due to complaints from citizens and if the area has alot of accidents.

A sad thought about drivers is that most are ignorant (as most have you have probably seen). I normally work an area of Hwy 29 where we have alot of accidents. I usally will work the area with radar. It never fails, I will get mulitple vehicles at least 15 mph over the 60 mph speed limit. Most of them will then say to me, "I see you here everyday." And yet, they still do it. Bascically, the drivers do not pay one bit of attention. It is also there lack of attention when the don't see motorcyclists.
