Santa Ynez, California Speed Traps
There are Two on Hwy 154 from the Santa Ynez Valley over the San Marcos Pass towards Santa Barbara. The one right near the Santa Ynez River (near Santa Ynez) has already been reported. The Second speed trap is just after you go over the top of the pass. After you go over the top of the pass heading down toward Santa Barbara, the lanes narrow from two to one. The CHP sets up right there to catch drivers who have just passed the slower drivers.
The police sit on the right side, traveling south, of a straight, two lane, passing lane stretch. They are hidden by a wall of rock and dirt right before reaching two fields of some type of produce. They nail speeders as they rush past slower traffic. Although the enforcement is not very good, they are there, especially on holiday weekends.
