Speed Survey Underway at Las Positas and Modoc Roads
Source: City of Santa Barbara
City staff is performing speed surveys to establish new speed limits on Las Positas and Modoc Roads. The study is currently in the data collection phase and should be complete later this spring.
Roadway construction for the Las Positas and Modoc Roads Multi-Use Path, which was completed last month, prompted the need to update the speed surveys. Staff had to wait until construction wrapped before starting the speed survey. California law requires speed surveys to establish enforceable speed limits on public roadways.
Once the speed survey is complete, updated speed limit signs can be posted for both Las Positas and Modoc Roads. Until then, the basic speed law applies, which is that motorists should not drive at a speed greater than is reasonable or prudent.
