Smart Cycling in Santa Monica

Drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians all share the same roadways – and a responsibility to travel safely. Cyclists must obey the same rules of the road as drivers, and officers will enforce these rules as necessary. The goal is for everyone to have fun, enjoy the fresh air, and act in a predictable manner so our roadways and paths provide safe passage for all.

Bicycle Detection

Were you wondering why small bike stencils were painted in lanes at numerous intersection lately? It is a video-based detection system for bike riders. In order to be detected by the signal system, position yourself at the “bike detection markings” at limit lines where a bike lane meets a signalized intersection throughout the City. Be sure to stop behind the limit line to get a green light. Enjoy the ride.
