No More Right On Red at De La Vina and Carrillo
City Cites Super High Frequency of Accidents
Drivers on De La Vina Street can no longer turn right onto Carrillo Street on a red light, the City of Santa Barbara announced Friday. Signs have been posted at that intersection — the city’s most dangerous for pedestrians, according officials — showing the change in rules. Since 2008, there have been 14 pedestrian-related accidents at that intersection, 10 of which involved people turning onto Carrillo during a red light and typically occurring when people were walking across Carrillo.
