Franklin Ave. Between Poppy Ave and Pacific Ave
In this area Franklin Ave. is virtually rural: it runs adjacent to Santa Rosa Rural Cemetery. The posted limit is 30MPH and you’ll likely get rear-ended or run off the road should you attempt to go only 30. Santa Rosa motor-cycle cops, armed with radar lurk at the open area where Monroe St. merges, by the gate to the cemetery, at Carr Ave and the numerous open driveways along the side opposite the cemetery. This is an easy gotcha for the revenue enhancement officers. Worst is that the minimum fine seems to be $280. Clearly this is more about revenue than safety although there is a school zone too although it’s not a typical school.
