The speed limit is set based on standards specified in the California Vehicle Code, except in residential and school areas where the limit is generally 25 mph. Lowering the speed limit to slow down vehicles is not an effective measure, as drivers tend to drive at speeds they feel comfortable with. If speeding issues persist, reporting them collectively at a neighborhood council meeting and forwarding the concerns to the Police Department for site monitoring may be considered. Furthermore, the City does have a Traffic calming program. Please see the FAQ concerning speed humps which describes the City’s program.
