The Orange County center began as a land grant in the early 1800s, when Mexican farmers traded cattle for manufactured goods from around the world.

Today, the Santa Ana Valley offers many attractions. The downtown area continues experiencing commercial growth and promoting the Santa Ana arts scene each year. Many veterans and Santa Ana residents enjoy the following town amenities and events:

Laws and Regulations in Santa Ana

Like most cities, Santa Ana relies on federal and state legal systems. Still, local municipal codes and other laws dictate how residents and visitors in the town should behave. Santa Ana became the county seat in 1889, making it the governmental and financial center of Orange County. As such, it has some unique laws and regulations.

For example, the Santa Ana Municipal Code (Chapter 36, Article III, Sec. 36-118) states: “No person shall stand, walk or sit on any median other than in a safety zone or crosswalk. This section shall not apply to any public officer, construction worker or employee of a public utility or its agent acting in the line of duty if such presence on the median is necessary to carry out the functions of the job.”

You might have trouble seeking compensation if you do not adhere to this Santa Ana city council requirement and get injured by a car or vehicle while standing on or near a restricted median. Our experienced legal team at The Reeves Law Group can help you navigate tricky city-specific accidents. Understanding the law can help you better protect your rights.
