Pleasanton Drivers-The Anti-Heroes

This morning I was waiting on Main St. to make a right turn onto Del Valle Parkway. I had a green light but I had to wait because there were kids in the crosswalk, one on a bicycle. At the same time, a man in an SUV was making a left turn from Main St. onto Del Valle. In his opinion, he was able to make the turn. He drove in front of the boy on the bicycle in the crosswalk and in back of the girls walking in the crosswalk. This man is an example of a typical Pleasanton driver; they drive in front of, in back of, or in between children in crosswalks.
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.
