Safer Streets Together

On Aug. 23, the City of Carlsbad declared a local state of emergency for traffic safety following a significant increase in collisions involving bikes and e-bikes. The city is taking a balanced approach focused on education, infrastructure and enforcement while asking the community to also do their part for traffic safety. 

  • Eliminate distractions
  • Slow down and watch your speed
  • Obey all traffic lights and signals
  • Know the bike and e-bike rules of the road
  • Use crosswalks when available as a pedestrian
  • Be kind and patient

We are all part of the Carlsbad community, and working together, we can make our streets safer for everyone. Visit carlsbadca.gov/saferstreets for more resources on improving traffic safety.

We’re here to help

We’re available to answer your questions over the phone, through our chat service or by email during open library hours.
