AB 2336 & Safe Oakland Streets

At the April 21, 2022 BPAC meeting, OakDOT Policy & Intergovernmental Affairs Advisor, Nicole Ferrara presented on AB 2336 and requested a motion of support for the bill.

Every week, two Oaklanders are killed or fatally injured by traffic violence. These crashes disproportionally impact Black, Indigenous, and People of Color communities, seniors, children, and people with disabilities.

Assembly Bill 2336 (Friedman): Speed Safety System Pilot Program is a proposed state law that would allow Oakland and 5 other cities to administer these speed safety systems as a pilot program. Oakland would be permitted a total 18 safety systems administered by the Department of Transportation.

The Safe Oakland Streets (SOS) Initiative aims to prevent severe and fatal traffic crashes, eliminate injury inequities, and carefully assess and mitigate any equity impacts resulting from safety measures. SOS found that, in addition to engineering, automated speed enforcement is highly effective at preventing traffic deaths, while also advancing Reimagining Public Safety Task Force goals of moving most traffic enforcement from the Oakland Police Department to the Department of Transportation.
