A couple of weeks ago there was a write up about “we all need to share the road” – that was my take on it. Well–I drive the Strand on a daily basis, seven days a week, morning and evening. In the last few years I say the bikes have taken over the Strand and through Coronado. Riding into Coronado, this a fine white line that divides us and you seem to think you need to ride that white line and that is even when there are two of you or 15.
Do you not read?! That area where you ride is Emergency Parking Only. There are several large signs up the Strand that say that. Also, coming from Coronado to IB there are signs saying No Parking. There isn’t hardly enough room to park even if you have an emergency. Yet bikers ride there as well. I have yet to see anyone stopped or ticketed. There is a bike path and thank you all who do obey the rules and use it.
Also, who do you think you are when you run through red lights and or stop signs? You do not own the road, or do you? Is this where we are supposed to get along? I say no! Coming through Coronado there is a car on my left, me, a biker or bikers and the parked cars. I get yelled at because I should move over and give the biker more room. Where am I supposed to go? Into the car next to me? I can’t. His words to me shall not be repeated. Just today (February 14), a lady biker wen through three stop signs and as I yelled at her that those are stop signs she just laughed. A few weeks ago a dad, mom and two kids rode right through Seventh Street and Orange Avenue stop signs. I yelled at him to stop and he gave me you know what.
This problem, one day will get someone badly hurt or killed. No one is paying attention, yet.
