Los Angeles - Luggage train at LAX pulled over for speeding?
Sep 17, 11, 12:13 pm
I fly through LAX fairly often and end up on the shuttle bus in between the Delta and Horizon terminals a lot. Last time riding the shuttle bus across the tarmacs from one terminal to another, (as it was dodging gasoline trucks, dump trucks, food services, etc.,), a police car passed us with its lights flashing. Soon the police car was motioning a little guy driving a luggage train to pull over. I can only assume he got a ticket for doing something improper? Anyway, the whole scene seemed quite strange to see police cars pulling over luggage vehicles. Do the tarmac police at LAX also pull over the planes - LOL!

I'll move this over to the Los Angeles destination forum.

I used to work at LAX and yes, the airport police do enforce the speed limits and other traffic regulations within the airport perimeter. I've even driven though radar speed traps on some of the more remote parts of the service roads.

Now that had to be a sight. :)
There are shuttles between terminals that go across the tarmac, or was this a shuttle between a flight and a terminal? Maybe it was an erratic (SUI-- shuttling under the influence) case. Or they were rushing to tell the guy he forgot a bag. I've never seen police cars on the tarmac. On the road in front of terminals, yes.

I've never seen police cars on the tarmac.
I've seen an LAXPD black and white on the tarmac probably every time that I've come through LAX.

Is there a "get your bags in 30 minutes or your flight is free" at LAX? ;)

Does this go on your DMV record? Can you go to online driving school to remove the point?
