Technically the officer can nail you for CVC 22350 (Basic Speed Law) if he wants to be an @ss. The yellow sign post is the "recommended speed" and NOT the prima facie. For example where I was stopped the recommended speed for the transition was 45, yet the officer wrote down the PF was 65 MPH. You can argue against the citation if you know how to use the Basic Speed Law to your defense. You can also obtain traffic engineering surveys for the off-ramp or transition.NeSyO03 said:On the off ramps....there are yellow signs saying a speed...but it doesn't say "speed limit". Are you really suppose to go like 40mph on the off ramp when coming off the freeway? Can a cop give u a ticket for goin 60 on the off ramp?
thats called a speed trap, if you tell the officer about your situation and you catch him trying to give you a ticket in a speed trap, then you by law cannot get a ticket. tell him the speed limits changed and if he catches you 10 feet over the changed speed from 65 mph highway... to 40 mph off-ramp and says you are going 65 in 40... that is a speed trap.

i don't think that helps very much if you're in a sporty looking import... you get labeled as the typical ricer/racer and the cops look for fix-it ticket stuff. some are just rat bastards... like the one who pulled me over less than a hundred feet from my school on my way to there for having my windows tinted (extremely light tint, i don't even know how he saw it).h0l0grafik said:thank God I am asian! woot
