people complain about speeding cars all over Lb so why limit enforcement to a relatively small area? Reducing the speed limit is a farce and a sop unless theres enforcement which there isnt where we already have these slow limits

I have observed, that since the ridiculous deployment of stop signs in the city, that drivers are driving much faster. While I have no statistics available other than my own experiences, I think the stop signs are having the complete opposite effect. People end up speeding more when they have to stop every 40 yards.

The problem is not the enforcement, idiots. You can bash me all you want, but I've never been in an accident, and that is because I follow the rules of the road, and I always leave myself an "out" while I'm driving. I was cut off while driving in the left lane by some ass in a Lexus SUV who decided to make a left from the middle lane while on his cell phone the other day on Park Ave at National Blvd. That has nothing to do with enforcement. It has to do with jerks on the road. Stop blaming the cops, and start blaming the a-holes. Mikey was a friend of mine, and this incident was just an unfortunate situation. The driver was sober. This was just an accident of bad timing for both involved. Stop whining on the Patch, and start calling the PD when you see the stupidity on the roads. This is Long Beach. We take care of our own. When you see someone doing something stupid, say something! Stop friggin' whining and DO something! I've stepped into the street in front of cars and made them slam on their brakes... Push something in their way to make them slow down. This is nonsense.
