1. There is a pothole on Washington, just west of where it intersects with San Pablo. 2. On either eastbound or westbound Solano at San Pablo, the embedded traffic sensors do not register if there is only a motorycycle in the lane.

The newish yellow lines painted down Pierce Street are causing hit and run accidents. There is NOT enough room on either side of this line for a car to pass safely. As people are trying to stay to the right of the yellow line, they have been hitting our cars. Obviously, nobody actually measured the street to see if there is ample room for two lanes of traffic.

Yes Dawn, legally, Pierce Street is impassible. Double yellow lines have been on that street for years, and drivers have broken the law by crossing over them to clear legally parked cars. Residents there also have a history of parking illegally on the sidewalk, simply to allow for the legal passage of traffic. It is safe to assume that the Albany Police Department looks the other way when it comes to enforcing laws along that street, unless there is a complaint. Add this 'ignore the law' to a great number of their 'ignore': a) U- turns in a business district (Solano, San Pablo Ave.) b) U-turns across a double-yellow c) Continuing straight from a marked left-turn lane (eg. W.bound Marin Ave. @ Stannage). d) Failing to have headlights on while rain-wipers are needed, or in use (even their officers violate this State Law.). e) Having obstruction to driver's vision (usually hanging from the rear-view mirror), or ignoring rear window decals a foot tall. (Call Albany Police Chief Mike McQuiston; I'm sure he's got dozens more that he's uncomfortable with that he might share) But park your car on the wrong side of the street, and well, you'll probably be cited.

How is it that the AC Transit 25 bus can make it down Pierce multiple times a day without incident, yet someone in a Honda Prius (example) clips a parked car???

Nobody in a Honda Prius has clipped anything. Ever. At any time or at any place. It's simply impossible. Can anyone tell me why? ;-)
Robert Marshall April 15, 2013 at 04:57 PM
Waiting for the punch line Winifred. This should be good :-)

Is this Patch's latest contest? It is TOYOTA Prius (not Honda) What do I win?

Nevertheless, Robert asks a fair question. I think one answer, Robert, lies in the 'E' (enclosed in a diamond) on the license plate on the bus, which renders the operator 'Exempt' from strictly following the law regarding, among other things, staying within the marked lane.
Winifred Owen April 16, 2013 at 05:22 AM
Ding-ding-ding-ding - we have a winnah!!! Peggy, you are right. Prius is made by Toyota, not Honda. (As far as a prize, I'm afraid the sheer satisfaction of coming up with the correct answer will have to be its own prize this time.)
