ACE Train riders-have respect for neighbors of the station

Original post made by Stacee on Jan 16, 2013

Just a shout out for all you ACE train people that haul
(Word removed by Pleasanton Weekly Online staff)
down W. Angela both in the morning to catch your train and in the evening to get home-have respect for the people that live on the streets around the parking lot (example-w.angela street, pleasanton ave etc). speed limit is 25 but slow down--are you that much of a hurry to make your train--leave earlier. I live in this area and I don't think it's necessary when I am backing out of my driveway for one of you speeders to tell me to get out of your way as I am backing up-next time-I might just clunk out blocking the entire street and making you miss your beloved train.

I often drive to the library in this area, and am totally amazed that there is only a TWO way stop sign at W. Angela and Augustine. This is an accident waiting to happen....or maybe the site of many accidents????
Why isn't there a FOUR way stop there, if the residents, Stacee, are concerned about traffic safety?

ayeaye....A 4 way stop is not needed at that intersection as Augustine St. is not intended, designed and/or designated as a through-way street. It's a narrow residential street. Pleasanton Ave. and Peters Ave are intended as a through-way north/south route.
