We do have some traffic but it really depends on your definition of traffic. On Friday Saturday and Sunday towards the afternoon we have a bunch of people coming up from the Ventura and Los Angeles areas for the day and/or weekend. Because of this we see traffic build up on these days from the Castillo area until Carpinteria. This is then most prominent in summer or on holidays.
As far as other freeway traffic it is still hit and miss in our town. Most of the time we are OK but you can for sure hit traffic on the one freeway that passes through town for 10-15 minutes.
In town our streets are relatively free and you would never count on any traffice just driving around town.
Hope this helps. Feel free to contact me with any other questions at 805-689-6877 or my website at www.KevinSchmidtchen.com
