Hi, I would like to know the speed limit in L.A. specially in the I-405 and in Beverly Hills.
The speed limit on the 405 is 65 miles per hour. However, if you are traveling during business commute hours it will be considerably slower.
The speed limit in Beverly Hills will be posted on the different streets and areas. For example, in front of a school, it might say slow to 25 mph, in a neighborhood it might say 35 mph. Be aware that camera's are mounted on some signals and they can take a picture of your car license for speeding.
Are they actually taking pictures of speeders, or just red light runners?
Thanks, but I have heard people go faster.
Basic rule is to go 35 mph on regular streets, 55/65 on the freeway, as long as you follow these rules, you will be fine
Well so for me I will be driving no more than the 60, but I have see that people do drive more than 75.
What about the carpool, it is in all the I-405 from LAX to the exit in Wilshire BLVD.
I think parts of it is carpool, dont worry to much about driving(aka speed limit in other topics), just enjoy your stay!
Just be careful. The CHP are pretty diligent. Especially around freeway off and on ramps. You really won't get anywhere much faster my obeying the speed laws. LA traffice requires patience sometimes.
Char - are you asking about only the freeways, or the streets as well?? As stated, the speed limit on most of the freeways in the "L.A. area" is 65, but you're going to see LOTS of people drive a lot faster than that. People in L.A. love to drive fast, and no matter how fast you're going, there is ALWAYS some idiot out there who wants to go faster than you! Again, L.A. people love to drive fast! I was doing about 75 in the fast lane on the freeway the other day and there was still some idiot behind me who was tailgating me because he wanted to go faster! But to be on the safe side and to avoid a ticket, if you drive no more than 70 on freeway, you should be OK.
Totally agree with you about the fast drivers! And if you're driving during rush hour, there are even more people who disobey the speed limits, because there are always people rushing to and from work.
