A: Our KION Question came from Shane in Seaside. He asked us, "Why won't the City of Seaside provide proper signage for one way residential streets?" Shane said, "On my street, cars unfamiliar with the neighborhood constantly go the wrong way because they don't realize it is a one way street. I have seen many near missess between vehicles. I asked the city to correct this, but they don't think it's a problem."
Here's the response from Seaside's City Engineer:
The City of Seaside contracted with a Traffic Engineering firm in 2000, which assessed the signage on all of the one-way streets and implemented new signage within the City Limits. The signage was installed in accordance with the Caltrans Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) which establishes standards for traffic control devices in California.
If there is a particular area of concern, citizens may contact the city engineer/public works department at 831-899-6825. At that point, the City's Traffic Advisory Committee can review the area for compliance with the (MUTCD).
