Oceanside, California Speed Traps
Plaza between College and Emerald
The westbound lane is posted 35 mph. The eastbound lane is unposted which, in a business district is 25 mph. There cannot be a street with different speed limits for different lanes.
DMV license examiners will use the 25 mph limit to take points off your driving examination. They are incorrect. Ask to see a supervisor.
Oceanside Blvd at Rancho Del Oro
Both directions (east and west), fairly common to see 1 or 2 motorcycles and at least 1 patrol car. Limit set at 55 and posted strictly enforced.
Melrose Ave between Oceanside Blvd and Santa Fe,south bound
Santa Fe south bound has a slight curve that makes it impossible to see the TWO motor cops before it is to late. I have made my own RADAR ALERT! signs just for these two, I get a lot of thumbs up and honks for my effort.
Oceanside Blvd between El Camino and College Blvd’s
Officer will hit you with on-coming laser or radar usually EARLY in morning (before sun up) is my experience.There is a median and the officer has to go a ways to make a U turn. This worked to my benifit in Court, he lost eye contact and there are a lot of white cars around at all times.
Vista Way between College and El Camino Real
Traffic on Vista Way, especially westbound, tends to flow ten to fifteen miles per hour faster than posted speed limits due to the hilly terrain. Motorcycle cops especially like to sit in the driveway to a complex of homes that’s just over a hill and around a curve, but this isn’t the only place on Vista Way that they’ll target.
