Look for Sharrows in Corona del Mar

From Newport Beach city Mayor Nancy Gardner in a recent interview,  "There are things we can control such as (public) education and making basic road improvements," Gardner said. "Painting these sharrows in Corona del Mar is part of that effort.

 The city is also trying to address tensions between motorists and bicyclists by putting up banners that read: "Same Roads, Same Rules," Gardner said. In addition, the city is creating a map that shows safe routes for bicyclists.

Last month, the City Council unanimously approved a bike safety improvement fund and also waived fees associated with a memorial bike ride held Oct. 28 in honor of Leaf and Campion-Ritz. The improvement fund would use city money, including grants, in a 3-to-1 ratio to match private donations up to $450,000. To date $60,000 of donations (before matching) have been collected.
