The Santa Rita Freeway
Original post made by Alan, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on May 29, 2008
Speeding on Santa Rita Road is the norm, and children are often crossing it. There needs to be regular police presence on Santa Rita. I am on Santa Rita Road several times a day, and I should be seeing police ticketing cars every single day. Unfortunaely, I'm not. I would like to use this venue to ask the Pleasanton Police Department to protect our children by stopping speeders on Santa Rita Road on a daily basis. Drivers should be afraid to speed on Santa Rita because of the police presence. Unfortunately, as of now, they are not. It's a free for all, especially at rush hour when commuters come off 580 and race down Santa Rita towards the Valley intersection as if they're still on the freeway.
