ATTORNEY MICHAEL REHM
While Rocklin is a Sacramento suburb, it is more than a bedroom community. Quarry Park and Miner's Ravine Bike and Walking Trail provide opportunities to enjoy the beautiful countryside, while art galleries and festivals satisfy cravings for local culture.
Major employers like Oracle assure that many of the city's residents have no need to commute to another city. Still, the attractions of Sacramento and surrounding communities assure that leisure drivers will join commuters on I-80 and SR 65.
Like other nearby suburbs, Rocklin tries to minimize the traffic congestion that contributes to car crashes in bigger cities. Residents have asked the city to do more, particularly given the rash of accidents at the intersection of Stanford Ranch Road and Crest Drive. Drivers who speed and ignore stop signs have contributed to Rocklin's legacy of traffic accidents.
