Are you sure they want to increase response time? Is there a problem with CHP not responding in a timely manner? Could it be that the sliding economy has reduced revenues and this may be a way to increase them? Enquiring minds want to know.

Actually, they want to decrease response time. The report that we recieved didn't have much more information than that. However, we can certainely speculate!

Is it that time of the year again? Ive seen the revolving speed traps up here in the bay area. 2 months on this stretch, two months on that... Get the fear into people and they are good for a week or two. Thats when I got nailed last...

Uh, maybe I'm missing some detail about police work, but if they're putting 150 extra units on a five-mile stretch, their response time should be about zero; that's one unit for every 176 feet, or slightly less than sixty yards. Sounds more like a parade route than a highway.



Did someone miss a zero someplace, is this some kind of so-many-per-shift operation, or has California suddenly started growing cops on trees in order to cover known motorcycle joy-routes?

When I did the math, I had to chuckle. Your guess is as good as mine. Like I said before, the report that we received wasn't very informative. Hopefully a helpful reader can assist in the knowledge-spreading department?

yeah, but those Crown Vics are only good for 120 or so...



The Kawi KZ1000's - about the same, or maybe a little less...



The Bavarian Money Wasters? Dunno...

Of course, these guys are out there 24/7, no time off to pee or eat.... Math is one thing, reality a different science.

Default Crown Vic max speed...

.. according to the MI State Police (who test all police model vehicles at Detroit every September) is typically between 135-140 mph; the real interceptor is the Camaro at 161-165 mph. The MISP don't currently do motorcycle testing.
