Crossing confusion straightened out



NEW SIGNAGE—The signs at the redesigned Los Angeles Avenue railroad crossings at Erringer Road now read “Do not stop on tracks.” Previously, “Stop here” signs pointed to a white limit line located before the railroad tracks on the southbound sides of both streets. The signs have also been updated at the Sycamore Drive railroad crossing.

ENFORCEMENT—The orange cone in the photo denotes 15 feet from the railroad tracks. If any part of a stopped vehicle is within 15 feet of the tracks, police may cite the driver. The Simi Valley Police Department has announced that it will ramp up enforcement at the intersections now that the signs have been updated and are clearer to drivers.
