Alameda, California Speed Traps
25 is the limit, and if you’re over 30 mph they will cite you.
There is a three-way stop at this intersection, very little traffic. Police park behind shrubs watching for rolling "stops". These are 15 mph streets and almost no risk of accidents from failure to stop completely.
Otis Drive, between Crown Beach and Grand Street, Police in cars and Motorcycles just off the side streets. I drive this street at about 26 MPH 4 days a week while others drive 40 or more and tickets are issued almost every day.
The posted speed limit in Alameda is 25 mph and they mean it. There are a couple of small sections posted at 35, but almost all of the town is 25. You also have to stop for pedestrians, jay-walkers, and anyone else with a foot on the road…failure to stop will earn you a ticket.
You’ll get ticketed if you are over 40, 1 mile over speed limit, and especially female or person of color. Also, in this town, you can’t get help if you spot a shooting or theft or drug problem as I have tried to call. They are just building up their retirement fund in this island town with annoying tickets.
