Pacific Coast Highway through Huntington Beach provides one of the most beautiful panoramas in the West Coast. However, its long, gently curving path tempts some motorists to dangerously race and speed along its course and blast ear-splitting noise from modified exhaust systems.
To deal with these treats to safety, peace and quiet, the Huntington Beach Police Department increased its enforcement at various locations along PCH on Saturday, April 24 and Sunday, April 25, according to Lt. Ryan Reilly.

The result is that 101 vehicles were stopped for traffic violations and 76 citations were issued. Additionally, 24 citations were issued for loud and modified exhaust systems and two to vehicles traveling over 100 miles an hour on the highway.

Nine citations were issued for driving without a valid license and seven vehicles were impounded.

The HBPD will “continue to enforce these violations and work with neighboring police agencies throughout the summer months,” according to Lt. Reilly.
