Atascadero, California Speed Traps
Speed reduces to 35MPH in the business portion of El Camino Real going northbound between Curbaril Road and Morro Road. The motor officer is strategically placed so if you are not at correct speed limit once you pass the sign, you will be pulled over.
Officer sits on Santa Barbara Road mostly ON Ramp – hidden from the on coming traffic heading north on 101 which many are going too fast after coming down the grade and through a desolate area of Santa Margarita & Atascadero. Same thing happens in other direction. Watch that last exit in/out of Atascadero! Ouch!
Speed limit drops suddenly from 40 mph to 25 mph driving south into downtown.
North of Santa Margarita on the NB 101,a CHP will sit just past a right hand bend in the road, hidden by a small hill.Traffic is normally flowing between 75 and 80 at this point.You see him too late.
heading west into atascadero radar cop sits waiting to get the 55 mph’ers that forgot to slow down to 40 mph as coming into city limits.
