[RANT] Holy cow! I know this topic has been beaten to death, but I cannot believe how bad some of the drivers are here in Long Beach. I am now watching vehicles go through stop signs at full speed. Usually you get a slight slow down, but apparently some drivers just have no time for that anymore. Don’t these people realize Long Beach is a residential area that is densely populated? I really honestly think we should put speed bumps at every interaction where there is a stop sign. Will it scrape the bottom of your car? Too bad, that means you are breaking the law and are not stopping.
The other thing I want to rant about is the amount of garbage that is continuously being dumped all over the place. Just because there is a pile of contracter garbage in front of a house, it doesn’t give you permission to dump your empty coffee cup or smelly dog poop bag on top of it.
Speaking of dog poop: Since we are temporarily without a boardwalk, many folks are using Shore Road & E/W Broadway as a path to walk, jog or ride a bike. Check out the sidewalk on the north side of E. Broadway between Riverside and Long Beach Blvds. There is so much dog poop on that stretch of sidewalk that you have to ‘walk’ as if you’re playing hopscotch (a new LB activity?). Ugh!!! [/RANT]
In other news: Who wants to play Dog Poop Hopscotch with me? It’s fun and great exercise!
