E-Bike Safety & Laws

As our fun-filled summer continues, and both residents and visitors are out and about, public safety is top of mind. This is especially true for those who own or rent and ride electric bikes (or e-bikes). As many in the community have noticed, e-bikes have become a common sight in our neighborhoods and on our major roadways. And, while e-bikes have a lot of benefits – they’re good for the environment, make it easier for more people to take advantage of bicycling, help reduce the number of cars on the road, and give people of all ages more freedom – they also present significant safety challenges and concerns.

With the proliferation of e-bikes in the community, safety concerns and rules of the road are becoming front and center with many complaints and concerns have been expressed from community members regarding the legal and proper use of these e-bikes. Many of the new users include the younger generation that may not have sufficient experience or knowledge of the rules of the road. Indeed many are not old enough to have driver’s licenses and have yet to learn the applicable motor vehicle laws.

In California, e-bike riders are subject to many of the laws applicable to the driver of a vehicle which, simply put, means e-bikes are considered vehicles and need to follow the rules of the road. Rules including:

  • Stay on the street; e-bikes are not allowed on sidewalks
  • Ride with the flow of traffic, not against it
  • Come to a complete stop at stop signs and follow right of way rules
  • Obey traffic signals

Additional e-bike safety and rules riders and parents should be aware of:

  • Parents can be held liable if their kids get into an accident.
  • Passengers are only allowed if there is a designated seat on the back of the bike.
  • All riders 17 and under must wear helmets. Helmets are recommended for all riders. Head injuries are common in bike accidents, and some riders never fully recover.
  • E-bike riders can cross an intersection with traffic or get completely off their bikes and walk across in the crosswalk.

Safety Classes

Some asked about where they could sign up for classes to learn more about the rules of the road. The San Diego County Bicycle Coalition offers classes on a wide variety of topics. The Smart Cycling Program is a great opportunity to learn how to ride your bike safely! The next Smart Cycling zoom class is on August 3rd. Here is a link to their website.

Thank you for working with us to make this a safe and happy summer! Please be great neighbors and do your part to maintain the harmony of this great community. There are so many benefits of e-bikes and alternative modes of transportation on our environment and quality of life. If everyone would comply with the regulations and keep safety as the top priority, everyone wins!

This Housing Boom Is One Of The Largest Ever!! Solana Beach 92075

Did you know California’s housing boom for the last 6 years is one of the largest in history!

Since consumer price measures began in the early 1900’s this price boom is the third largest in history and the national home price average has increased 53% since 9/18. So nationally a sales price of $200K in 2012 would have sold for over $300K at the end of 2018, and more significantly in parts of California the increase has gone from $300k in 1/2012 to $557K at the end of 2018, an unbelievable increase of 86% over six years according to Zillow.

Which means that this boom is only second to the price boom that happened in the years immediately following the end of World War II.

As with all good things, all home booms come to an end eventually. While the post-WWII boom ended in an easy decline, the Millennium Boom came to a significant crash.

Experts predict that a decline in home prices may happen because building permits and sales volume point to a slowdown ahead. With that said, this kind of home price magnitude is so rare, predicting and outcome is not totally full proof. For example, ordinarily price movement can be tied to Gross domestic product however in 2012 – 2017 the GDP rose comparatively less, just 19%. Because there’s the factor and unpredictability of the emotional aspect of individual decision making. Suggesting possibly more government intervention is needed to reduce the unpredictable effects.

Still, even with the unpredictability of human emotions to contend with, we can still make some presumptions about the future of the housing market.
