All the locals know about the trap, but even they find it very difficult to slow fast enough safely on that slope to meet the ridiculous reduction in speed limit.

Although it is accurate that you could find a CHP at the bottom of the hill, the speed limit is consistent after leaving the Golden Gate Bridge's 45MPH. After clearing the GG bridge, the speed limit is 55MPH for the next 10 miles (until after San Rafael Civic Center) when it changes to 65MPH.
