We had a great vacation traveling through southern Oregon...we stopped at most of the small towns we drove through and our 2 young children (5 and 7) enjoyed every minute of it. Unfortunately I missed the drop in speed from 55 to 40 at the beginning of the bridge entering Gold Beach. When I realized it was dropping to 30 at the other end I began to decelerate but the damage was done. I was pulled over and cited for going 47 in a 30. The officer was very friendly and smiled the whole time. Of course, he had trapped another tourist! We proceeded to travel back to California where our trip had started with a bad taste in our mouths. Perhaps a warning sign when approaching the town would be helpful....especially since it is a 2 lane highway that everyone is traveling on. I can say I would advice anyone to travel to Gold Beach based on my experience there.
