At least they have a plan now. Too bad the County Sheriff's Office won't help out Oakland. They are too busy writing tickets on Foothill Road East of Castlewood. Thanks Sheriff Ahern. We now understand you think turning left on Foothill between 5:30 and 8:00 AM is much more important than the casual and wanton murder taking place in your county - often the murder of children - and the terrorizing of the citizens of Oakland by the murdering thugs.

Get ready, tax paying working citizens of Pleasanton. Mark my words, they will all be out in force Monday AM at commute time, trying to put more of your money in their pension funds. Drive safe, follow the letter of the law, be aware of the traps. Come to a full and complete stop at stop signs and starve these bastards who won't fight crime but seek to further line their pockets with your money.
