    Shhh…can you hear the DA sending a message to bad drivers? Can you hear it?

  • Sean Rea

    I’m sure the driver feels really bad. Why do you need to make them feel worse?

  • This location is ground zero for Outside Lands. Pretty early in the day, but I wonder if the victim was a festival worker, or a super eager fan…

  • mikesonn

    Probably on their smartphone and had it coming, right Stanley Roberts?

    Don’t worry, the DA and the police agree as well. Texting and walking is equivalent to texting and driving to them.

    The real news on the Dublin story is that while the Golden Gate Drive project added nice, green bike lanes to the BART station connector road, there are currently no bike facilities which lead TO this street. The city is balking on a proposed road diet and bike lanes on Dublin Blvd, which would not only connect riders to and from the BART station but also to downtown shopping, parks, multiple other bike routes, the Alamo Creek Trail, Dublin city hall, bike shops, and more. Dublin can stripe all the green bike lanes they want, but if they don’t actually connect to anything then they have little to no value.
