Too many red light violators

October 9, 2013 

In the space of three miles yesterday I observed four drivers run red lights – not pink, not yellow but incredibly red. At two crosswalks there were children ready to cross the street.

Running red lights seems to be OK in this town because it just continues. What if that was your child in the crosswalk? It’s bad enough that cellphones are still constantly being used three years after the law was passed. Now the growing red light issues. Drivers, pay attention. The life you save would be somebody’s loved one!

Modesto Police Department, please, we need some help here.
