The MMTSP will complement existing enforcement efforts in Citrus Heights. We recognize that enforcement is a huge part of neighborhood traffic safety, but unfortunately, the Police Department cannot be everywhere at once. Therefore, a combination of engineering, education and enforcement is the best solution. The MMTSP will review traffic safety concerns as they come in, and the General Services Department will work to identify countermeasures as appropriate in addition to the on-going enforcement efforts by the Police Department.
We have developed a toolbox of items to help spread the word regarding traffic safety in Citrus Heights including the lawn signs and car clings as an educational component to this program.
In addition, we continue to provide educational opportunities and work with neighborhood schools. This has been a bit challenging this past year, as schools were in distance learning mode, neighborhood groups were unable to meet in person, etc. But when we return to in person learning and can meet in person, city staff will work with principals, teachers and neighborhood representatives to identify opportunities to educate all on proper bike/ped rules and safety.
