Accidents are waiting to happen

By From page A6 | March 07, 2014

My fellow citizens of Davis: For too long I have stated that the city of Davis is a heartbeat away from a major and crippling accident or series of accidents. Why? Simple: the too many near-misses of car vs. car, or car vs. bicyclist or car vs. pedestrian or bicyclist vs. car, and let us not forget pedestrian vs. car.

Alas, now I must report that the once-fine city of Davis is a half-a-heartbeat away from a major and very crippling accident. Recently, while traveling south on B Street, I heard a bicyclist telling the driver of a black car to use his turn signals as he, the bicyclist, was trying not to hit the car as the car forced the bicyclist to also turn right from Eighth Street onto B Street.

Thankfully, the bicyclist was not hurt, and no doubt the two high schools boys made it to their class on time. City of Davis, we are close.
