passing lane at the Sierra at Tahoe Ski Resort turn off   South Lake Tahoe, California

This will take place in the summer months on Sundays in the afternoon. One CHP vehicle will be stationed at the bottom of the passing lane as three to four CHP units will be further down the road to intercept the vehicle that are called in on the radio by the CHP stationed at the bottom of the passing lane. They don’t bother with anyone doing 5 to 10 or even 15 miles an hour over the posted 55 miles an hour sign as they are going for those who are doing over seventy mph. This passing lane is down hill and 55 mph is a safe speed for this dangerous busy mountainous road and so the CHP is trying to save some lives but you can get away with 60 mph, any faster calls for a disaster in winter.
