Victoria Street near East of Brookhurst   Costa Mesa, California

If in Huntington Beach,street is Hamilton with speed limit of 45 miles an hour.Once into Costa Mesa the street becomes Victoria with a speed limit of 40 miles an hour.This street has been reconized as one of the heaviest traveled surface streets in Orange County,Ca.Going uphill the speed limit is 45 mle a hour but watch out,going down hill the speed limit is 40 miles a hour.Tickets written can get confusing indeed,going east or west is it 40 and 15 over or 45 and 10 over.City boundries and sign work are confusing,the City of Costa Mesa which patrols heavily perfers things that way.

Placentia Street near Adams Street   Costa Mesa, California

As you are going east down placentia (when Estancia High school is on your left) At the base of fair view hill their is a street. there is a moto-cop parked at the end of this street. This hill is usually very empty and encourages speeds of around 60 the hill is steep and you need to break in order to get down to the 35 MPH speed limit. I have seen multiple cops waiting there at the same time waiting for a victim.

State Highway 55 near Newport Avenue   Costa Mesa, California

The exit at the end of the 55 Freeway terminates becomes Newport Avenue. There exists an automated red light camera by Nestor Traffic Systems. According to Cal Trans records the signal has not had appropriate traffic studies in over nine years, despite California state laws that clearly specify reassessment every few years.

The speed limit at the end of the freeway is not the usual speed limit of 45 mph. It is instead 35 mph!

This 35 mph zone is not consistent with other off ramps in the same vicinity and is not consistent with zoning at other Orange County freeways.

Orange County traffic engineers have already complained about the problem because they are getting calls from irate citizens. The City of Costa Mesa traffic and zoning departments have also had complaints.

Despite the complaints, the city of Costa Mesa is still fining people in their speed trap by claiming that they are running the red light at Newport and 19th Avenue.

The fact of the matter is that the yellow light is one second too short because the speed zone should be FORTY-FIVE MILES PER HOUR and NOT 35 mph as posted!
