Assembly Bill No. 1115

An act to add Section 484.1 to the Streets and Highways Code, relating to highways.

[ Approved by Governor  August 29, 2016. Filed with Secretary of State  August 29, 2016. ]


AB 1115, Salas. School zones: state highways.
Existing law generally provides that the Department of Transportation and local authorities have authority over the highways under their respective jurisdictions.
Existing law establishes a prima facie speed limit of 25 miles per hour during specified periods of time on a highway near a school building or school grounds if the highway is posted with standard “SCHOOL” warning signs.
This bill would designate a specified portion of State Highway Route 184 in the County of Kern as a school zone and require the zone to be identified with standard “SCHOOL” warning signs. The bill would provide that the above-referenced provisions governing prima facie speed limits in school zones apply in that zone.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO
