The Huntington Beach Police Department began a Bicycle Safety Class in 1972 to educate juvenile bike riders on the rules of the road and the proper way to ride a bike. The class now includes Pedestrian, Roller Blade, Scooter, and Skateboard laws and safety. It was originally intended for juvenile law violators as an option to criminal court. Now, the class is open to all Huntington Beach residents and is taught by a Huntington Beach Police Traffic Officer.
With more traffic congestion on our city streets and more people turning to alternative transportation methods, it's important for everyone to know their legal rights, responsibilities and rules of the road to help reduce traffic collisions. It's particularly important for our younger citizens to learn safe roadway behavior, especially how bicyclists, pedestrians and motorists share the road.
Although originally designed for juveniles, parents also learn a lot from attending. Anyone under 18 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
The class starts promptly at 8:30 AM on the second Saturday of each month and lasts about 1 ½ hours. To attend, please call the Traffic Unit at (714) 536-5663 to reserve your spot.
Planning Commission meetings are held on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month. Meeting Agendas, Action Agendas, and Minutes are available to view online.
