Pedestrian Safety

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Recently, the Complete Streets Safety Committee rolled out the “Safe Pedestrian Routes to Schools” plan(click image to enlarge).  This was the result of a year-long project by the Complete Streets Safety Committee to study and identify routes and improvements that would provide for the safest and most direct conduits to and from the schools and central Brisbane.  The Committee's Plan was approved by the City Council on December 18, 2014.

A primary component to the success in establishing these routes is to ensure the unobstructed use of the sidewalks.  The committee noticed that due to Brisbane’s narrow streets, residents often parallel park their vehicles on a portion of the sidewalk.  In addition, many driveways in Brisbane are too small for vehicles, and as a result, large portions of the vehicle block the sidewalk.  These conditions are unsafe as they cause pedestrians to have to walk around the vehicles and into the street.

Blocking any portion of the sidewalk is a violation of California Vehicle Code 22500(f).  The Brisbane Police Department is committed to traffic safety and will be taking enforcement action for vehicles blocking the sidewalk starting in April.  Please assist us in our efforts by keeping the sidewalks clear.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation and assistance!
