But I saw a bike rider run a stop sign yesterday. I wish the police would focus their attentions on those who are doing the most damage on the roads. Oh wait, they are! Nice work Police dept but keep it going.

Its estimated that for every driver arrested for DUI, 10 more get away with it. Keep that in mind as you observe the drivers on the road out there. Be careful out there on the roads, the drunk drivers truly are capable of taking your life.

Good work, indeed. The only issue with this county is one gets arrested in prison and goes thru trial only if the arrested party is a legal resident or citizen. If the arrested person is an undocumented immigrant then that person gets a ride home by the cop and excused away. So watch out if you are legal in this country. you will get arrested and put in prison for violating the law but you are let go freely if you are undocumented because they are free to do anything. Thank You Santa Clara, San francisco, Los Angeles,etc...
