Santa Barbara, California Speed Traps
(Santa Barbara Northwest to Santa Ynez) Rolling traps and parked traps during morning and afternoon rush hour, and on weekends mid-morning and evening.
Traps/radar use has increased heavily since the budget crisis–subtext: a de facto tax on the unwary or unfortunate late driver.
Northbound 101 right after the separation to 217 to UCSB. Usually one motorcycle is waiting at the side of the road between 101 and entrance of the incoming traffic, around under the over-head road of the 217.
Just make sure to slow down when you see the 217 toward UCSB!
Heading West on Foothill Road down the hill after you pass La Cumbre there will often be a motorcycle cop with radar. Your speed down this hill can get going, and if school is in session at La Colina the speed limit is 25 at the bottom of the hill. That is often when the motorcycle man is there so keep it slow near schools when in session.
CHP motorcycle patrol, special funding for low tolerance enforcement
CHP local office is in Goleta, just off Los Carneros Rd. Lots of motorcycle officers in this area, and cruising between Goleta and Santa Barbara. CHP also drives low-profile white cars which blend in until the lights go on.
