Marina, California Speed Traps
Marina PD has officers posted off the side of the road in places not visable to the traveling motorists. This speed trap has is heavily patrolled by two agencies. Both the CHP and the Marina PD are posted.
Marina has a parking maid who drives their animal control truck through the Preston Park residential neighborhood, issuing parking citations and towing vehicles on a daily basis.
Southbound on Del Monte entering Marina speed drops from 55 mph to 35 mph. 360 tickets in 9 months per police stats. No slow down sign.
Myself and quite a few other people I know, have gotten pulled over right where Hwy 1 meets the 156.
This is indeed a speed trap………..
Reservation Road leads to many of the event parking for Laguna Seca Raceways and the Marina PD is filling their coffers with ticket money especially during Moto-cross. They are gunning for tourists and many have event parking in parts of old Fort Ord. The speed limit going west drops quickly so watch your speed or pay the piper!
