LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1669, Wagner. Speed limits: Orange Park Acres: equestrian trails.
Existing law prohibits any person from driving a vehicle at a speed greater than the speed limit. Existing law generally sets forth prima facie speed limits, unless changed or otherwise authorized by law. Existing law permits local authorities to set prima facie speed limits on the basis of an engineering and traffic survey, as defined, if the different speed limit is necessary to facilitate the orderly movement of traffic and is reasonable and safe. Existing law authorizes the City of Norco, when conducting an engineering and traffic survey, to consider equestrian safety, in addition to the specified factors set forth.
This bill would authorize the County of Orange, when conducting an engineering and traffic survey of the public streets within the boundaries of the common interest development known as Orange Park Acres, to consider equestrian safety, in addition to the specified factors set forth. The bill would make legislative findings and declarations as to the necessity of a special statute for Orange Park Acres.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 22353.5 is added to the Vehicle Code, to read:

22353.5.
 When conducting an engineering and traffic survey of the public streets within the boundaries of the common interest development known as Orange Park Acres, in addition to the factors set forth in Section 627, the County of Orange may also consider equestrian safety.

SEC. 2.

 The Legislature finds and declares that, because of the unique circumstances applicable only to the common interest development known as Orange Park Acres and the equestrian trails there, a special law is necessary and that a general law cannot be made applicable within the meaning of Section 16 of Article IV of the California Constitution.
