I'd guess they would do this when its hard to radar someone...say in hard curvey roads i.e. the 17.
The situation you described is actually defined in the Vehicle Code as being a speed trap. Which is illegal. Chances are that the officer on the first bridge is using a LIDAR and then telling the next officer via radio who to pull over.

Also, since you guys use radars just curious...could you get a radar scrambler...i know it sounds funny..but is that possible (not that I would do that considering that no one near be could listen to the radio)
A RADAR scrambler or jammer is illegal. But either one would be interesting to play with.
Go ahead, ask me a question... Check out the CopTalk thread in the California forum

Thank you Sam
