Cambria says no to electronic speed signs

North Coast advisors and 16 members of the public at their April 18 meeting sent county Public Works a unanimous recommendation: No electronic speed-alert signs in Cambria.

Public Works got the message from North Coast Advisory Council, traffic manager Dave Flynn said in an e-mail interview.

“We have other communities that we'll install them in,” Flynn wrote Monday, April 23, mentioning Mission Street in San Miguel and El Camino Real in Santa Margarita.

The county had planned to install two of the driver-feedback signs on Cambria’s Main Street. The signs show the speed limit and how fast vehicles are going.

The signs were proposed after complaints about speeding drivers coming into town were raised at a November meeting.
