Every public street within the city is swept once per month. Arterial streets are swept twice per month. During heavy leaf-drop season (November through January), every street is swept twice. See the Leaf Season (Nov-Jan) or Regular Schedule (Feb-Oct) to see which week the street sweeper is in your area.
Stop signs are installed after stop sign warrants are met for a particular intersection. Stop sign warrants are based on traffic volumes, visibility, and the accident rate. Many people believe stop signs are the answer to controlling speeding along streets. The CalTrans traffic manual states that stop signs are not to be used as a speed control device, but to identify who has the right-of-way at an intersection. Studies have shown that when unwarranted stop signs are installed along a road, motorists soon realize that the stop signs are unnecessary and begin to run the stop sign. This behavior could lead to an accident. Also, motorists tend to speed up after an unwarranted stop sign because they are frustrated by having to stop or slow for what they feel is an unnecessary stop sign. In many cases, measured speeds have been higher between stop signs than before the signs were installed.
Requests for traffic signs can be requested through the Submit a Concern or Service Request Forms. The Traffic Management Team will evaluate each request for need. Replies will be made by letter or email to the requestor.
The city has a Neighborhood Traffic Management Policy (PDF) that guides the evaluation of traffic problems and the development of strategies to improve traffic conditions in residential areas. Please call 916-727-4770, or use the city's service request form to report your concerns.

Provide pothole size – small, medium, large or dimensions – 12x12, depth, etc.
Location (intersection or address)
Specifics – bike lane, center line, corner at stop sign, left turn pocket, etc.
Weight – heavy vehicles and frequent traffic deteriorate pavement
Water – water seeps into cracks, loosening asphalt
Weather – wet and cold weather weaken roads further
FIX IT FACTS –
Hot asphalt can’t be applied in cold, wet weather – hot asphalt requires temps to be 50 degrees or higher
Cold patch won’t compact as tightly as hot asphalt and may loosen again, especially when wet
Mill and fill removes existing surface layers, usually in larger sections than the pothole, and refills the area with new asphalt for 7-10 year life span
