Ontare Street (From Foothill Street to State Street) 93105

Santa Barbara, CaliforniaAug 28, 20020 Comments

Ontare Street runs perpendicular to Foothill Street and State Street. Ontare Street is about 1 mile long and quite a steep descent. Every automobile will accumulate a good amount of speed on this hill (going downhill, of course) even if the driver is riding the brake the entire way down. I was pulled over by an officer on a motorcycle who gave me a citation for going 42MPH in a 30 zone. However, I was coasting and I hadn’t touched the accelerator at all on this hill. My car was idling at 650RPM. I was driving safely in perfect visibility and I would have had ample time for immediate braking if it were necessary at ANY time.
