[ARCHIVED] Summer Safety on PCH, Canyons and Malibu's Beaches

memorial day safety newsflash


Memorial Day weekend signals the start of the summer beach season here in Malibu, which means we can expect to see more traffic, trash and road hazards. Every Memorial Day, the Malibu-Lost Hills Sheriff's Station's Summer Beach Team begins its daily patrols on quadrunners, foot and trucks of our beaches in Malibu. Their focus is mostly on preventing alcohol consumption, which is illegal on our beaches, and helps to reduce drunk driving on PCH and canyon roads in Malibu, and keep the beaches safe. The City of Malibu funds the Beach Team from Memorial Day through Labor Day. The City Public Works Department has deployed the City’s Changeable Message Signs with traffic and safety information at strategic locations throughout Malibu. City maintenance crews will be working throughout the holiday weekend to help address trash on the roads.

The City will put out messaging throughout the summer on social media with #SafeSummerMalibu urging visitors, commuters and residents alike to help keep PCH, canyon roads, beaches and trails in Malibu safe and clean. Please follow us at and and repost if you see our messaging. 

  • Celebrate responsibly - don't drink and drive, use designated drivers, taxis and rideshares. If you see someone suspected of drunk or impaired driving, please call 911 to report the emergency.
  • Stay alive, don't text and drive.
  • Slow down and watch for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists pulling in and out of beach parking and crossing the highway to access the beach.
  • Leave no trace - please help keep Malibu's beaches and trails clean and beautiful, throw away your trash in proper trash cans, and pick up any trash you see.

To sign up for emergency and traffic alerts via text or email, visit the webpage and scroll to alert center.
