Pedestrian Safety Improvements

635672410533900000If you have recently driven through the intersection of Huntington Drive and Santa Clara Street, you may have noticed newly installed traffic control devices. The City has installed two, very bright, LED signs that when illuminated, display the universal “NO RIGHT TURN” symbol. The signs are activated in conjunction with the pedestrian walk phase and only turn on when someone has pushed the demand button on the signal. Making a right turn on red is acceptable if the signs are not lighted. Turning against the signs is a violation of th1211561412008traffic06e California Vehicle Code, section 22101(d). This is a moving violation and a can be a point on your driving record.

635672410535000000The City is committed to improving pedestrian safety and continues to research and find better means to make our streets safer and “ped friendly.” Handicap access ramps, on-going sidewalk repair, and brighter crosswalk signs with improved visibility, are all are examples of our dedication to this effort.

Pedestrian safety is everyone’s responsibility! Watch out for folks on foot, pay attention to street and speed limit signs while driving, and be especially careful in the area of schools and senior facilities.
