Traffic speed in ÔLoopÕ scrutinized
Submitted By Sgt. Chad Olthoff, Hayward PD
On March 15th, 2013, the City of Hayward completed construction in the downtown area of the city and opened the new ÒLoopÓ. Although the new traffic flow pattern has helped reduce gridlock in the downtown area, numerous residents and representatives from the Police Department have noticed speeds of vehicles traveling on Foothill Boulevard in the downtown area have increased.
In a continuing effort to provide safer city streets, the City of Hayward and the Hayward Police Department want to remind motorists traveling in the downtown area that the speed limit is posted as 25 MPH (in accordance with the California Vehicle Code Section 22352). Directed enforcement operations are forthcoming and motorists driving in violation of this speed limit are subject to enforcement action by members of the Hayward Police Department.
