End of southbound Hwy 17 where it exits on to Ocean St.
Coming into Santa Cruz from Hwy17 onto Ocean St. the speed limit drops from 55mph to 30mph in about 100 feet just before the overpass. Most of the time normal traffic will slow you before you get into town. But sometimes just before commute times, 6a.m. or 3p.m. two motorcycle cops sit in the intersection and point radar/laser guns up the freeway. Officers on foot at the corner of Pryce and Ocean St. with handheld red lights will step into traffic to wave you over. Sometimes it’s hard, going downhill, coming off the freeway and seeing that green light intersection to slow quickly enough to avoid the ticket. They will ticket for 35mph. I have seen 2 officers writing tickets as fast as possible with 4 cars waiting to be written up.
