    This is tragic. I have seen some egregious driving around the city lately that makes me reconsider ever riding in the bike lane again. A few honorable mentions:

    One dark red Acura SUV with two “baby on board” signs who frequents Paseo Padre, accelerating like it’s a drag race, ending up over double the limit while weaving in and out of lanes (incl the bike lane). CPS should be called on this obviously irrational person. He should be glad someone else cares about the safety of his “babies”. He sure can care less.

    One older VW Passat in dark blue driven by tempestuous idiot who uses Niles Blvd in old town as his short cut, tailing every car in his way.

    Ditto for a black Prius with a large white sticker in the back driven by a younger male.

    And there’s the H2 Hummer driven by ‘arrogant guy’ who considers other drivers on Decodo Rd to be irritating obstacles.

    If any of these are your neighbors, give them a pat on the back for being grade A menaces.

    Riding a bike in the bike lane is very dangerous. People driving in cars are aloof to bicyclist.
    Has there ever been a ticket written for violating the bike lane, I do not think so.
    It is to dangerous to ride a bike on city streets, bike lane or no bike lane.
    I have solved the problem for my grandkids and great grand kids.
    We ride the Alameda Creek trail, starting at Mission Blvd. To Coyote Hills Park, approximately 12.5 miles.
    The path is paved and the scenery is beautiful….
    It is somewhat of a pain to load up the bikes in my truck….
