The Public Work's Traffic division provides traffic data collection to support the operation and maintenance of the traffic signal system, the annual traffic counting program, and stop sign studies. This division evaluates future traffic signal needs, provides necessary traffic and engineering surveys, conducts neighborhood traffic studies and accident analyses, and approves traffic handling, signing, and striping plans. It also provides oversight for the City's central traffic signal system (including signal revisions to reduce congestion) and reviews traffic impact analyses and environmental documents prepared for developers, adjacent transportation agencies, and others.
While the City's trail system currently allows for different types of bicycles, including e-bikes, our staff is continually evaluating policies and regulations related to trail safety. Several cities in Orange County are experiencing similar issues regarding excessive speed of some e-bikes on multi-use trails, exacerbated by the explosive growth in the popularity of e-bikes. Restricting e-bikes altogether or even imposing speed limits is very difficult to enforce, so education is generally a more viable alternative. See our Safety Guide (PDF), which is a partial list of best safety practices. Always use good judgement when walking, running, or cycling.
