By Gary Richards | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group June 16, 2019 at 5:45 am Q: One reason that so many drivers don’t bother to stop, or even slow much, for right turns on red may be that they have been trained to do that. Paul Gregory, Palo Alto A: I suspect you may be right. Q: Before eliminating right turns on red, these free rights should be eliminated. Besides being confusing, they are very unsafe for pedestrians who have to dodge cars to get to the pork chop island. A good example is a crosswalk by Stevens Creek Boulevard at Santana Row. Heavily used and dangerous. Paul Gregory A: Here is today’s Roadshow 101 lesson. Paul is correct. Free right turns are permitted only if a light is positioned to a driver’s left or as they turn as is the case on most expressways in Santa Clara County. If there is a signal to their right as they turn, one has to stop on red. Got it, folks? Free right turns won’t be eliminated. Such a drastic change … [Read more...] about Free right turns won’t be eliminated: Roadshow

Brittany Carloni Naples Daily News Published 6:01 PM EST Feb 20, 2019 A stretch of Williams Road near the Walgreens west of U.S. 41 is one of the most complained about areas in Estero, the village says. Residents have complained about drivers making illegal left turns from the Walgreens at Williams Road and Atlantic Gulf Boulevard, according to the village. Only right turns are permitted leaving the drugstore to get onto Williams Road. The intersection’s proximity to U.S. 41 limits stacking space for drivers that want to turn left from Williams Road to travel north on U.S. 41. Estero is working on fixing the problem. On Wednesday, the Estero Village Council approved a $79,000 contract with Fort Myers-based AIM Engineering & Surveying Inc. to study and design improvements for that portion of Williams Road. “It’s not going to be an easy solution. It’s not one that’s obvious,” David Willems, Estero’s Public Works Director told the … [Read more...] about Estero: Right-turn-only at Williams Road needs work

(AP Photo/Cliff Owen, File) (The Associated Press) A senior FBI official accepted two tickets to a professional sporting event from a television reporter who regularly covered the bureau, the Justice Department's internal watchdog said Tuesday. The office of DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz found that the unnamed official had not reimbursed the correspondent for the tickets, despite initially claiming under oath that he had done so. The watchdog said that the official's actions violated federal regulations on gifts. The Justice Department declined to prosecute the official, who has since retired from the FBI. Horowitz's office also found that the official previously accepted a ticket to a different sporting event from the same reporter, as well as a ticket to a third sporting event from a different correspondent. The official said he had reimbursed the reporters for … [Read more...] about FBI official improperly accepted sports tickets from reporter, watchdog finds
