It's standard operational procedure for the CHP to monitor the common California distracted motorist at any location where Cal Trans is performing roadside maintenance and repair in order to save the lives of the workers.
They're not out there to get you unless you deserve it.

ROAD WORK DANGERReply: cinder465
If this is the area West of Wood that I think it is...I see CHP here all the time...I ALWAYS slow down to a crawl along there. (being the speed demon I am!) They always hid in the bushes on the private drives along there.

Wow. As if driving Cajalco isn't tricky enough! Thanks, Nathan.

Road Work Danger!Post: Nathan
I just had to take a photo of this. Not sure if this was planned or not but sure looked odd to me. I was doing about 60 mph down Cajalco and come up on a guy standing in the road with a shovel. I slowed down naturally only to have him move off the road at the last moment. Then I notice there is a CHP sitting on private property which I believe if I recall correctly is entrapment and quite frankly illegal but silly me.

No signs, middle of the road with a CHP waiting for you to slip. WOW, sounds a little crazy to me but what do I know.

Be careful out there, just thought I would let you all know.
