There are many types of traffic control devices employed by traffic engineering and law enforcement officials to guide and regulate the flow of traffic. These include signs, traffic signals, and pavement markings (such as centerline stripe, “STOP AHEAD” stencils, crosswalks, etc.). The City of Tulare refers to the California State Traffic Manual as a guideline for determining how and where these devices are placed. This helps to insure uniformity in the way these devices are employed throughout the State of California. For more information, please refer to the Tulare TIP’s link
to review some brochures we have prepared regarding the placement of stop signs, traffic signals, speed limits and crosswalks.
The City of Tulare relies on input from its citizens to help identify ways of enhancing the safety and efficiency of our transportation system. If you have a traffic safety concern, or idea on how to improve our system, please do not hesitate to bring it to our attention. You can email your concerns to our staff at the address listed below, or feel free to give us a call. Thank you for your interest regarding traffic safety in our community!
