Prohibiting Long Vehicles from Windy and Narrow Roads

Board of Supervisors

Meeting Date: 12/12/2017


The Board will consider the first reading of an ordinance prohibiting motor vehicles in excess of 30 feet from certain specified narrow and windy roads where the length of the vehicles pose a traffic hazard. An ordinance with restrictions on vehicles over 36 feet long on narrow and windy roads was adopted in December 2014. A study showed 32-foot buses need to cross the road's centerline to negotiate curves, such as on Muir Woods Road. Staff recommends that the ordinance be revised to prohibit vehicles of more than 30 feet. Staff recommends that the Board schedule a merit hearing for 10:30 a.m. January 9, 2018.


The Board conducted the first reading and scheduled a merit hearing for 10:30 a.m. January 9, 2018.
