    There's a line there just about every day going up to Friars and around the corner - but I don't know how far back it goes each day. I work near there and walk by it almost every day. A few months ago I noticed there were no cars in line along that short road, by McDs - then I noticed some cars and a few police officers going car to car. Not sure what that was about, but the next day the cars were back in line again.

    That was SDPD policy of providing courtesy notifications regarding the new ALL STOP/NO RIGHT TURN LIGHT that's been added to the street light arm on EB Friars at Northside Dr. That's the new SD way, you know... cut everyone a bunch of slack, then hold no one accountable after that.

    SDPD doesn't have the manpower to assign a traffic unit to sit at McDonalds every day and pull the offenders over en masse. With the way everyone is ignoring that new light, there's no way any officer of group of officers could get the citations written fast enough. The light installation itself was in response to all of those westbound idiots.. errr...cars that would always get caught hanging out in the middle of Friars as they tried to beat the red light arrow. I loved getting right into the doors of those cars and lay on the horn when the light turned green for me - and I'd keep it on until there was room for them to move forward and for me to proceed through the (now yellow) light. No better way to see what it looks like first-hand when someone is doing their best to pretend you don't exist. "If I don't look at him, he wont see me !":emoji_joy::emoji_joy:

    Not saying those turning left on WB Friars trying to get in to Costco are correct for doing that - they probably see it like this - left arrow turns green - but can't go because there are cars from EB Friars turning into that lane - if they wait for it to open (which won't happen until Costco closes), the light will turn yellow/red before that happens - then people behind will lay on the horn - so they go - and get stuck - then those on EB Friars are blocked. Technically they should stay at the left arrow until it is clear to proceed so that they don't block the intersection and impede traffic. Probably sit there for hours until Costco closes, then they can go

    I noticed the light pattern has changed. In the morning there's almost no EB traffic on Friars - but we have the red turn arrow and need to stare down an almost empty three lane road.

    I'm sure they DO see it like that. I'm also pretty convinced that alot of them have that skreww everybody attitude though, and could give two turds about anyone that has to sit and wait for them to clear the lanes. Everyone is human, and so are the people that knowingly and willingly block the intersection. Its all about meeee.. and my time is precious !! I want innnn !!!!!!!!

    The permanent fix to the 52 dips would require a low bridge with piles that penetrate solid material. The cost would be hundred of millions of dollars.The current road is over unsound material, landfill. So yeah, the current strategy works, is inexpensive, and logical until funds are found.

    And there are no state geologists are going out of their minds.

    Those are facts, not your speculation.

    There were a group of kids who went way too fast on those bumps a few years back and paid the ultimate price.

    I have many friends who work at CT, they are smart and dedicated public servants, so I gotta short fuse when they get tossed under the bus; my bad for being direct and short.

    I owe you some KY and a reach around.

    Funny thing I noticed... The station I get gas at in Santee (right on Mission Gorge and Carlton Hills, everyone sees it).... They didn't bump their price up a single cent when the tax increase hit. They simply skipped lowering their price this week. 3.39 isn't too shabby given that the best I can get near my home is a good .25 more per gallon.
