Surf City traditionally lures over 10 Million visitors a year, the REVENUE this draws in is calculated at over 17 million annually.

In addition to visitors, our population is over 200,000, all living within our 28 square miles. 

The auto and pedestrian traffic on PCH alone daily is estimated at over 100,000.

IN 2006 in an LA Times article it was sited that HB specifically had serious issues to address (see article here https://www.latimes.com/local/orangecounty/la-me-0501-oc-traffic-study-20160502-story.html

It stated specifically that the city along with neighboring cities needed to come up with their own funds for public safety. THAT WAS 15 years ago folks!

In the last week of May 2021 alone  - there were 2 pedestrians killed by cars, and one of them was a DUI.

With the revenue and taxes Surf City generates, how is it possible we still do not have ALL WAY cross walks at all intersections - like any sophisticated tourist city should? In addition it is abundantly clear that we NEED LIT signs on BOTH sides of PCH (specifically at 14th and 11th) where is is LEGAL for pedestrians to CROSS!

In ground lights installed "into" the highway that alert vehicles that there are pedestrians seeking to cross, and to SLOW down is an intelligent fix. 

The city recently installed brand new parking meters Up and Down PCH to collect MORE revenue, SHOULD we not insist the funds go directly to public safety?

WE MUST insist that our taxes are directed to a long time issue that has gotten way out of hand. How many more deaths need to occur before the investment is made?

ALL WAY CROSS WALKS are a must, VISIBLE LIT PCH crossings South and North, with in ground lights warning drivers pedestrians are in the road. 

PROPER policing to ticket speeders - From PCH/Seapoint to PCH/Beach is another option to generate income and FUND these logical and LONG overdue solutions.
