Valley Center Grade Entering Into Escondido
CHP and Escondido Police like to lurk on either side of the lower end of the grade. Police units are usually parked at the far end of the roadway curve. Units are out of view of vehicle traffic until the vehicle clears the curve area. Due to steepness of the road…a coasting vehicle will often times exceed the posted 55mph limit resulting in a ‘speeding’ ticket. This area is a real $ maker for the State as well as the City of Escondido. The speed limit for the same area used to be 65 mph until the ‘public servant’ authorities realized that a 55 mph zone would be a dramatic revenue generator!
