Speeding is – by far – the most common complaint in the entire City. It is also the most common primary factor in collisions. You can refresh your knowledge of California speeding laws with this page on the DMV website.
Speed limits are determined by electronic surveys of the drivers on the roads scheduled to receive signs. The State mandates a procedure to post the appropriate speed limit. This process is handled by our engineering department.
Many patrol officers are certified by the State to operate RADAR and LIDAR (the laser version of RADAR) for the purposes of speed enforcement. Alltraffic officers are certified operators of the equipment, and some are instructors as well. The officers will only use RADAR and LIDAR on roads that have been surveyed for the posted speed limits.
