1772 - Spanish Capt. Pedro Fages arrives; camps at Agua Dulce, Castaic, Lake Elizabeth, Lebec, Tejon [story]
Pedro Fages


Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies were out at both ends of Golden Valley Road between Centre Pointe Parkway and Sierra Highway last week, and issued 73 citations to drivers for driving at unsafe speeds.

“Life’s a journey, not a race,” reads a Wednesday morning post on the station’s Facebook page.

“Take a deep breath, enjoy the scenery, and if you start coasting downhill at a faster rate of speed, apply more pressure on the brakes to keep it at a reasonable speed.

“We realize that’s not a new revelation, but you’d be amazed how many motorists state that was the reason they were substantially exceeding the speed limit.

“Stay safe.”

  14. Great job, keep at it!👍

  15. A seriously dangerous stretch of road. Just because it’s down hill, no excuse. That’s what brakes are for.

  16. Myk Halibut Myk Halibut says:

    LEO needs to slow down too!

  17. They must have gotten low on funds

  18. Patrick says:

    Great job, SC Sheriff! Keep up the good work. Try Whites Canyon, Plum Canyon, and Camp Plenty. Too many racers.

  19. Dan says:

    This stretch of road is well set up for a catastrophic accident in which a speeding downhill car or cars could end up going into the oncoming uphill lanes and killing numerous people. Considering how many drunk drivers and bad accidents there are in SCV, it could very easily happen. If it did, people would be in force on here, criticizing the cops for not policing this stretch of road.

  20. Travis Levy says:

    I DONT KNOW WHY EVERYONE IS SHOCKED. WE’VE HAD TOO MANY DEATHS AND CAR ACCIDENTS ON THIS LITTLE STRETCH OF ROAD.FUNNY HOW PEOPLE SPEED AND GET MAD AT THE SHERIFF FOR DOING HIS OR HER JOB.YES ITS REVENUE AND YOUR HANDING IT TO THEM ON A SILVER PLATTER.DO THE SPEED LIMIT AND YOU WONT GET A TICKET.

  21. CBrwon says:

    Thank you! I am tired of getting tail gated for driving at the speed limit. I drive all over the City and the amount of road rage people display is at an all time high. I have seen too many accidents caused by speeders. Unfortunately the only way to deter people from driving crazy is to ticket them. We need a lot more of these raids.

  22. If they really want to ticket – sit at every traffic light and ticket everyone on their cell phones…everyone always looking at their crotch. OY

  23. Good Job. I love these motorcycle officers.
