Pleasanton Drivers-The Anti-Heroes
Original post made by Rhonda on Jan 16, 2009
I believe the law is that you do not drive through a crosswalk when there are pedestrians in it.
Pleasanton residents ignore the law and the safety of children. There is a lack of intelligence, safe-driving and consideration for Pleasanton children among Pleasanton drivers. Their behavior is the opposite of that of the Danville pilot who is a hero for his care and intelligence when it comes to the operation of a moving vehicle and the safety of others. If he had been a Pleasanton resident, he would have had no problem with landing on a school crosswalk. What's the problem? The kids can move.

I know what you mean. I see it everyday. But if you summerize "all Pleasanton drivers"... then people reading this are going to attck you for it. Just a warning...

She summarizes it as "all Pleasanton drivers" because she doesn't travel outside of Pleasanton to witness drivers in other cities. She would miss too much time away from her TV and word find puzzles.

You want really bad take a trip to Fremont..
Seriously though it is unsafe for pedestrians crossing here, might not be all drivers, but its definatelty not just one or two either. I've been in crosswalks when cars speed through on numerous occasions, they didn't even slow down, couple times I was crossing and there was a crossing guard (for the school) with the sign up and people crossing when cars drove right through.
People need to pay better attention, just because the turn arrow is green does not mean go without looking, and just because there is no light doesn't mean one can ignore the crosswalk lines.
