i so agree with you, but lets put things in an accurate light. we are all guilty of some law breaking ( speeding, j.walking, running a red, ect.) [Portion removed due to disrespectful comment or offensive language] you know who they are you see the all day long in P-TOWN. the bicyclists who purposly run stop signs ( the children in this town are more RESPECTFUL BICYCLIST ) how about the non stop speeding in front of amador high ( i believe the speed limit is 25 WHEN CHILDREN ARE PRESENT, 35 when their not, which is never), or the flagerant disregaurd for parking and driving laws that takes place daily at all the schools in pleasanton ( partly to blame is our mismanaged planners, take a good look some day at how each school is laid out, each, even the newer schools, is built to handle busses, not every kids personal car) one of my all time favorites the merging lane ( pick one, any one they're all the same, the cars in the merging lane have to pass as many cars as they can, all this usally just as they pass the DO NOT PASS sign). my point in all this is welcome to PLEASANTON the new home of the super arrogant, disrespectful, illmannered soccer mom, guy in a nise suit,couple out for a sunday walk, family at the resturant. pleasanton did not use to be this way. to blame in all this is law enforcment, why , because when you turn a blind eye to this type of behavior your promoting it. you never see an adult cyclist being ticketed for running a red, yet they are writting tickets to kids all the time for helmet infractions. next time you see a cyclist or a group of cyclist approching a stop sign, wait( at a complete stop) till thier front tire has reached the white line then pull out and continue through the intersection, at this point THEY WILL HAVE COME TO A COMPLETE STOP and all will be good. please everyone, obey all traffic laws.thank you for your time.
