The City Council on Monday is expected to approve the second reading of a new 2012 Speed Limit Ordinance that updates engineering and traffic surveys and establishes new speed limits for four Mission Viejo streets.
Local agencies – based on California Vehicle Code (CVC) Section 40802 – are required to conduct engineering and traffic surveys every five years so law enforcement personnel can enforce speed limits by laser or radar. The last citywide speed limit update was conducted in 2007.
By mid-October, new speed limits will be established for the following streets:
Los Alisos Boulevard – East City limit to Entidad will go from 50 MPH to 45 MPH.
Napoli Way – Corsica to San Rafael Street will go from 30 MPH to 25 MPH.
Pacific Hills Drive – Oso Parkway to South Ridge will go from 25 MPH to 30 MPH
Peter A. Hartman Way – Jeronimo Road to Via Fabricante will go from 35 MPH to 30 MPH
The City has sent notices regarding the changes to homes and businesses in the area. All other posted speed limits in the City remain the same.
