Can additional speed limit signs or stop signs be installed on my street?
June 24, 2020
In general, the Town has a policy to limit the amount of signage throughout town to minimize sign pollution and maintain small town character. When deciding whether or not to place a new sign we consider several factors including legal and technical appropriateness, likely effectiveness of the requested signage to change driver behavior, maintenance of a consistent approach throughout the community, and effective use of public resources. Studies have suggested speed limit signs do not significantly modify driver behavior, and drivers tend to disregard signs in the long term. Per California regulations, stop signs should be used for traffic control at intersections and not for regulating speeds.
