The Fallbrook Community Planning Group recommended a list of road segments and intersections, in some cases emphasizing specific times, for speed limit and other traffic law enforcement by the California Highway Patrol.
A 14-0 planning group vote July 18, with Kim Murphy absent, approved the recommendation of the list to the CHP.
“We’re thankful for any extra patrols that they can provide us,” said planning group chair Eileen Delaney. “We’re very concerned about the speeding.”
In many cases an emphasis was placed on school traffic hours or commuting hours. The planning group recommended enforcement of the Main Avenue speed limit between Fallbrook Street and Mission Road especially from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. and from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The planning group recommended speed limit enforcement of South Mission Road from Ash Street to Fig Street especially from 1:45 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. and of Reche Road between Stage Coach Lane and Green Canyon Road especially from 1:45 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Traffic in the Santa Margarita Preserve area is also a concern to the planning group, and the planning group recommended enforcement of DeLuz Road, Rock Mountain Drive, and Sandia Creek Road especially on weekends and holidays.
Enforcement on South Mission Road between Pepper Tree Lane and Old Stage Road was also recommended. The planning group also recommended enforcement of traffic laws at the intersection of East Mission Road and Iowa Street and the intersection of East Mission Road and Brandon Road.
