Goleta California - Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Operation Planned for June 7 2022 02 June 2022 ( news )

Goleta , state California

   The Goleta Police Department will conduct a traffic safety operation
   Tuesday , June 7 , 2022 , from 1:00 p . m . to 5:00 p . m .
    focused on the most dangerous driver behaviors that put the safety of people biking or walking at risk . These violations include speeding , making illegal turns , failing to yield or provide right of way to bicyclists or pedestrians , or failing to stop for signs and signals .
   “Cars aren’t the only ones who use our roads” Traffic Supervisor Sergeant Noel Rivas said . “Bicyclists and pedestrians have the same rights but face even more risk without the protection vehicles provide . Please be cautious . ”
   The Goleta Police Department offers steps drivers and pedestrians can take to greatly reduce the risk of getting injured or in a crash:
   Pedestrians:
   
   
   Be predictable . Use crosswalks , when available .
   
   Take notice of approaching vehicles and practice due care .
   
   Do not walk or run into the path of a vehicle . At 30 mph , a driver needs at least 90 feet to stop .
   
   Be visible . Make it easy for drivers to see you – wear light colors , reflective material and carry a flashlight , particularly at dawn , dusk or at night .
   
   Be extra careful crossing streets or entering crosswalks at night when it is harder to see , or when crossing busier streets with more lanes and higher speed limits .
   Drivers:
   
   Follow the speed limit and slow down at intersections . Be prepared to stop for pedestrians at marked and unmarked crosswalks .
   
   Avoid blocking crosswalks while waiting to make a right - hand turn .
   
   Never drive impaired .
   Bicyclists:
   
   Obey traffic laws , use hand signals , use lights at night ( front white light and rear red reflector ) , and wear a helmet .
   
   Bicyclists must travel in the same direction of traffic and have the same requirements as any slow - moving vehicle .
   
   Avoid the door zone: do not ride too closely to parked cars .
   
   If there’s a bike lane , use it , unless making a left turn , passing , or approaching a place where a right turn is allowed .
   
   Yield to pedestrians . Bicyclists must yield the right - of - way to pedestrians within marked crosswalks or within unmarked crosswalks at intersections .
   Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety , through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration .
   The City of Goleta contracts with the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Office for law enforcement services .
