LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2955, Friedman. Traffic: Cities of Burbank, Glendale, and Los Angeles.
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 and the common interest development of Orange Park Acres, when conducting an engineering and traffic survey, to consider equestrian safety, in addition to the specified factors set forth.
This bill would authorize the Cities of Burbank, Glendale, and Los Angeles when conducting an engineering and traffic survey of the public streets within the boundaries of the Rancho Master Plan Area, the Horse Overlay Zone, and the Sylmar Community Plan Area and the Sunland-Tujunga-Lake View Terrace-Shadow Hills-East La Tuna Canyon Community Plan Area, respectively, to each consider equestrian safety, in addition to the specified factors set forth.
This bill would make legislative findings and declarations as to the necessity of a special statute for the Cities of Burbank, Glendale, and Los Angeles.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 22353.2 is added to the Vehicle Code, to read:

22353.2.
 The City of Burbank may also consider equestrian safety when conducting an engineering and traffic survey of the public streets within the boundaries of the Rancho Master Plan Area in the City of Burbank, as described in the City of Burbank’s General Plan adopted on February 19, 2013, in addition to the factors set forth in Section 627.

SEC. 2.

 Section 22353.3 is added to the Vehicle Code, to read:

22353.3.
 The City of Glendale may also consider equestrian safety when conducting an engineering and traffic survey of the public streets within the boundaries of the Horse Overlay Zone, commonly known as the Riverside Rancho Area, in the City of Glendale, as described in Chapter 30.21 of the Glendale Municipal Code, in addition to the factors set forth in Section 627.

SEC. 3.

 Section 22353.4 is added to the Vehicle Code, to read:

22353.4.

SEC. 4.

 The Legislature finds and declares that a special statute is necessary and that a general statute cannot be made applicable within the meaning of Section 16 of Article IV of the California Constitution because of the unique circumstances applicable to the Rancho Master Plan Area in the City of Burbank, the Horse Overlay Zone in the City of Glendale, and the Sylmar Community Plan Area and the Sunland-Tujunga-Lake View Terrace-Shadow Hills-East La Tuna Canyon Community Plan Area in the City of Los Angeles, and the equestrian trails in those areas.
