It turns out that even though most Palos Verdes Estates residents have no idea why we’re protesting, why we’re attending council meetings, and why we’re up in arms, other people understand exactly what’s going on.
For the record, dear PVE folks:
- We want five (5– that’s an integer after “4”) Bikes May Use Full Lanes signs installed per the recommendations of your traffic safety committee, traffic engineer, outside consultant, and city attorney.
- We want sharrows.
- We want enforcement of the 3-foot passing law with the same vigor you enforce stop sign violations.
Pretty simple stuff if you can read, and frankly, pretty simple stuff even if letters and words are not your forte.
Anyway, after the first climb on the Donut Ride this past Saturday, some dude was waiting at the top of Crest with actual donuts and cash. He is one of those guys who knows how to read words and stuff, and he came out in support.
But then, the double wow, as if donuts weren’t enough: $100 cash donation, which we’ll spend on pizza this coming November 8th, when we attend yet another city council meeting to help convince the PVE elected officials that they made a mistake when they voted down the signage two meetings ago.
Thanks for the support, Donuts and Cash Dude!
