sbX tips for traffic safety

As testing for the new sbX rapid transit service begins, it’s important for motorists to become familiar with the new street configuration which includes new lane striping, double yellow lines and yellow safety barriers. Below are some of the new traffic signs to also be on the lookout for when traveling along the corridor.

sbX Bus Only
Bus Only signs and roadway markings warn motorists and pedestrians to stay out of the dedicated Bus Only zones. These dedicated bus lanes occur in the 5.4-mile stretch just north of the 10th and E Street intersection in San Bernardino all of the way to the Tippecanoe Avenue and Hospitality Lane intersection.  

Bus Lane Violation – $341
Bus violation signs are posted to warn motorists of the fine for entering a Bus Only lane. The fine is a hefty one. Violators can expect to pay a minimum of $341.
 

No U-Turn
No U-turn signs are posted to prohibit motorists from making unsafe turns into intersections where there are center-running dedicated bus lanes. To navigate this change, motorists need to proceed to the next protected intersection to make a U-turn.

No Left, No U-turn
 No Left/No U-turn signs are posted to prohibit motorists from making unsafe turns into intersections where there are center-running dedicated bus lanes. To navigate this new change, motorists must proceed to the next protected intersection to make a left turn or a U-turn.

Right Turn Only
These signs are positioned at every T-Intersection where a safety barrier is located and indicate that you must turn right (no left) and travel to the next intersection where there is a protected U-Turn.

No Jaywalking
Pedestrians should always use marked crosswalks to avoid being hit. It is never safe to jaywalk across traffic lanes.
