East Palo Alto, California Speed Traps
Highway Patrol sits at the bottom of the hill waiting for cars to go over 55 MPH. Most cars are going 65-70 on the bridge, at least until they get nailed at this speed trap.
Several years ago Hwy 84 was officially rerouted away from University Ave. At the same time, East Palo Alto reduced the speed limit on University Ave–a divided 4-lane boulevard–to only 25 mph in an effort to discourage traffic. The unrealistically low speed limit has turned this major arterial into one long speed trap.
