Recent studies have proven that red light cameras and the hefty fines that go with them DO NOT reduce accidents at busy/dangerous intersections. Let's be honest and admit they are not there for safety...what those cameras do is generate cash for the city. If you want to get drivers to think before running a light, especially in an area like San Ramon, where everybody and their spoiled teenager has a BMW, sentence them to giving time to public service. To the snobby, getting seen on 680 picking up trash would be a far better deterrent than paying a fine. Speed bumps would be a better investment in safety as well.

72 years. Think about what this person faced in 72 years: WW2, Korea, Vietnam, the Cold War, the Bay of Pigs, DDT, the evolution of the television, transportation, the news, entertainment...love, family, children, contributions to society...all to be ended by a Ford Explorer driven by a man with a suspended license. What a waste. God Bless her family and loved ones.

i like the idea of speed bumps! however, i attempted to get speed bumps on my street (which is not nearly as driven or dangerous as this intersection) and the city has to come out and survey the area and do a study, etc. . . AND i honestly think it would cause add'l traffic problems in an already congested area. there must be another area similar to this w/ the same scenario (not necessarily in san ramon) that we might be able to gain other ideas from (?) . . in any event, too many instances where "accidents" keep happening. . . fatal hit and runs, etc. . . i have faith in san ramon and the residences, so hopefully we will find something that will save lives and work for the drivers. . .
