Police citations in Emeryville for Bicyclists

WARNING. Be very careful in riding through Stop Signs in Emeryville. In other words, come to a complete stop - not a "rolling stop." I was apprehended and cited recently by a motorcycle police officer with full-blaring siren, just after I hand signaled before the stop sign, looked both ways, and slowed to under 5 mph. That ticket will cost me $299 unless I can fight it in court. I'm 72, retired and felt the fine was absolutely outrageous - I plan to fight it in court. Any suggestions?

Emeryville Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan

Emeryville Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan

The City of Emeryville adopted its first Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan in 1998, which sets forth a vision to provide bicycle and pedestrian access to all parts of the city, transit hubs, and neighboring cities. The City has since constructed many of the projects recommended in the 1998 Plan. The City is updating the 1998 Plan to address new issues that have arisen in the past twelve years. The city has become a regional shopping destination, a center of medical and film making innovation and will be the access point for the bicycle and pedestrian path on the new east span of the Bay Bridge. The new plan will include:

  • Updated existing conditions, collision information, and biking and walking activity levels
  • Recommended bicycle routes and pedestrian facilities
  • Design and maintenance standards

The City of Emeryville has hired Alta Planning + Design as the consultant to prepare the Plan. Emeryville City Website on Ped/Bike Plan
