Help us keep our streets safe!
Thank you to all those who were able to attend the June 28th meeting of Butterfield Corridor Safe Streets. Click here for a summary of the meeting notes. We are currently looking for volunteers to work with our team on a Back to School Transportation plan to keep kids safe while walking and biking during covid and also for members to work on an Eyes Up campaign for the fall. If you’re interested, please contact Nancy at firstname.lastname@example.org. Drive, bike and walk carefully and stay safe!
If you experience a dangerous event and it’s in progress, call 911 and Sheriff’s office will be notified and send response or notify the CHP.
If you observe ongoing unsafe behavior, record time, location, and license plate number (if possible), and report to CHP at 415-924-1100 or CHPMarin@chp.ca.gov.
They will then contact the person or send them a letter.
Thank you for your help in keeping Butterfield safe!
Yellow School Buses!
Yellow school buses are back in the Ross Valley and as you’ve probably noticed, on Butterfield specifically! Just a reminder to all drivers that we are required to stop for the stop sign when activated on a school bus. The fine for violation of California vehicle code section 22454 (a) CVC is $680 for failure to stop for a school bus with flashing signals. The DMV point for this violation is 1 point.
Here’s the section:
22454. (a) The driver of any vehicle, upon meeting or overtaking, from either direction, any school bus equipped with signs as required in this code, that is stopped for the purpose of loading or unloading any schoolchildren and displays a flashing red light signal and stop signal arm, as defined in paragraph (4) of subdivision (b) of Section 25257, if equipped with a stop signal arm, visible from front or rear, shall bring the vehicle to a stop immediately before passing the school bus and shall not proceed past the school bus until the flashing red light signal and stop signal arm, if equipped with a stop signal arm, cease operation.
If you’re getting caught in traffic going to and from work or errands, you may want to consider moving your commute time a bit forward or back if possible. Thank you for keeping our kids safe!

THANK YOU FOR DRIVING CAREFULLY!
The Butterfield Corridor Safe Streets Committee wants to thank you for driving carefully. All three of our area schools (Brookside, Hidden Valley, San Domenico) are promoting green commuting to their students and parents and we would love your kids to feel safe enough to ride their bikes. We need your help to make this happen!
