Traffic safety is one of the City's highest priorities. Orinda PD works diligently to maintain safety on local roads for both automobiles and pedestrians. Officers conducted 60 collision investigations last year, down from 87 in 2011. To help with this effort, the Safety Officer assists Patrol by direct enforcement activity where traffic violations persist.
The Traffic Safety Advisory Committee
The Traffic Safety Advisory Committee (TSAC) was created in 2006 by the City Council to address community concerns relating to traffic safety in Orinda. TSAC, which is comprised of volunteer residents appointed by the City Council, identified the guidelines set forth in the Traffic Management Program. Residents are encouraged to use this program to learn about traffic calming. TSAC meetings are held the 3rd Monday of each month at 7 p.m. at the City Hall.
