Beware of Passing Trains!
Just a warning to the wise. Not all the trains stop at the Carlsbad Village Station due to schedules. So quite often you will witness the trains speeding through like a flash. So be aware of where you are standing and please keep a tight grip of the little ones!
Exceeding the posted speed limit can get you a ticket and create an inconvenience. Sometimes the speed limit is painted on the surface of a highway.
The top speed limit on freeway I-5 in town areas is 65mph, out on the "open-road," like in areas past the cities, the speed limit goes up to 70 mph.
The top speed limit inside the city is 25 or 35 miles per hour - follow the traffic signs.
From Chris (balfor):
Driving over the speed limit - How fast you can go depends on the area. When I lived in Virginia you could do 4 miles per hour over the speed limit with no problem and it was pretty much up to the mood of the policeman between 5 and 10 miles over. More than that and you were getting a ticket no matter who was on duty. Here in Atlanta, if you aren't doing at LEAST 10 miles an hour over the speed limit, you are blocking traffic because you are going too slow. In the 55 MPH zones, the normal speed is between 65 and 70 with the police not looking at you twice if you are driving 70. It makes me wonder how fast some of these people are going to get pulled over!
Thank you Chris!
