Del Rey Oaks, California Speed Traps
This road used to be only 35 mph and it was the biggest speed trap on the peninsula. EVERYONE knew you had to go 35 or less or else it was a guaranteed speeding ticket. Fortunately, they had so many tickets on this road that the Court ordered an engineering study and I am very happy to say the speed limit has now been raised to 45 mph from 35. This helps tremendously but I still advise people to never go a mile over 45 because they will be waiting for you…
The road is about 3 miles long & slightly hilly but straight as an arrow.During events at the track it is patrolled very,very heavily.posted limit is 35 mph. should be at least 50 mph.Del Rey Oaks PD,Federal Police & Monterey County Sheriff all patrol.If you get a ticket by the Fed. Police you have to spend about 12 hrs.in San Jose at the Federal Courthouse.The fine average is around $400.00.
Officers sit at turn outs on either side of the road on blind curves or behind the trees or in the City Hall parking lot. They use no visible means of measuring speen other than "you appeared to be going over the speed limit". Del Ray Oaks os a tiny town sandwhiched between Seaside and Monterey and has no means of city support other than the traffic tickest issued there.
