Mar Monte Avenue in La Selva Beach

Santa Cruz, CaliforniaJul 04, 20130 Comments

Mar Monte Avenue between Larkin Valley Road and Alta Drive in La Selva Beach. The roadway is rural, contains highway on/off ramps, and low density housing. The County Code says the current speed limit is 30 MPH, but the posted signage is 25 MPH. No traffic survey has been done showing a 25 MPH speed limit is safe and reasonable. Last known traffic survey showed average 85th percentile speed of drivers is 42.2 MPH. CHP is using radar to enforce the 25 MPH posted speed limit and County Code says speed limits are changed when “posted.” Hence, they can post whatever limit they want without any basis and without regard to local law and collect money from drivers which exceed that limit.
