Benicia Industrial Park Way near Industrial Way

A radar cop sits in the parking lot on Industrial Way right before Oregon Way. He’s at the end of the straight away (coming from East 2nd towards the Benicia Bridge) & is not visable until it’s too late. I’ve seen him there in the mornings during the weekdays, but not every day.

East 2nd St. Street near West Tennys Drive

when coming from the industial park cops sit there
because the speed is reduced from 45 to 35. Also,
school zone at 25 when lights are flashing. This
has been a popular spot for many, many years.

Primrose Lane near Rose Drive

People tend to drive faster on Rose Dr. It is a road that goes from one end of town to another. It constist of different speeds mostly 25 miles an hour. Watch out
for the speedtrap near Mathew Turner Elementary. Slow down before you get to the school. He is usually near on the corner of primrose or kearney.

Panorama Drive near Southampton Road

Panorama Dr is considered by law enforcement to be a local or residential street, but after pulling street descriptions from the Benicia Planning Department, I found Panorama to be classified as a minor arterial, therefore exempting it from the California default speed of 25 MPH. I pulled the recent radar speed survey for the city of Benicia and Panorama Drive is not on the list within the last five years. The study has not been done, and therefore law enforcement has no legal right to enforce a limit that is not in compliance with the MUTCD (Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices). The speed limit here is posted at 25 MPH and often the signs are obscured by trees or shrubs.
If you get a ticket here, you should be able to win in court if you have the chance to fight it. I spent over an hour on the stand yesterday at the Solano County Courthouse in Vallejo arguing these points to a Pro Tem Judge, who I don’t think understood the laws here. I have him case laws to look over from several sister states and he did not find me guilty. I am awaiting verdict by mail after he goes over the 60 pages of case laws I dropped on him at trial!
