A version of the flying car appeared much sooner than expected at a busy
intersection in Irvine.
The small, one-engine prop plane carried a student flyer and instructor
from nearby John Wayne Airport. When the plane experience engine trouble,
it had to make an emergency landing at a four-way red light intersection. The
video is actually pretty cool. The plane coasts through the intersection on
green, and then all the traffic proceeds normally as if nothing had happened.
There were no traffic accidents and no one was injured.
Speed Limits on Side Streets
It may come as a surprise to some, but California streets are actually
designed and engineered for land vehicles and not airplanes, though it
is very good to know that they can be used that way in an emergency.
previous post, we looked at the 85th percentile rule for setting speed limits. On non-highways, the same rule
applies, with a few added
Blind Intersections: If visibility is less than 100 feet and there are no stop signs, the
speed limit is 15mph.
Alleys: The same speed limit applies in paved alleys, one lane parking lot access
ways, and other similar roads.
Business and Residential Districts: The default speed limit is 25mph unless there are signs indicating otherwise,
so there are neighborhoods in Delano and Porterville where the speed limit
on a three or four-lane road is 25mph.
There are also reduced speed limits – usually 15mph – in school
zones, railroad crossings, and near some animal pens.
