SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Folks traveling on highway 192 near Santa Barbara Tennis Club will notice a new speed limit sign.
Caltrans reduced the speed limit from 55 mph to 35 earlier this year. The speed limit drops near the Santa Barbara Tennis Club to Chelham Way in Montecito.
Caltrans officals say that despite the change speed is still a problem in this area. They want drivers to slow down and residents in the area feel the same way.
"This morning my brother took me down to the post office and we were coming back and a guy in a white truck almost cut us off by driving really fast right on Foothill road just before the off ramp. It was very scary," said Charlene Pricher from Santa Barbara.
The new speed reduction is consistent with the posted speed limit on highway 192 through Santa Barbara and Montecito.
