AB 1546, as introduced, Chávez. Traffic control devices.
Existing law requires the Department of Transportation to place and maintain appropriate signs, signals, and other traffic control devices along highways under its jurisdiction. Existing law further authorizes the department, with the consent of local authorities, to place and maintain appropriate signs, signals, and other traffic control devices along city streets and county roads as may be necessary or desirable to control or direct traffic, or to facilitate traffic flow, to or from state highways.
This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to these provisions.
