For decades, we homeowners living near the corner of Peach and Chorro streets in San Luis Obispo have been subjected to crashes, speeding motorcycles, trucks and cars — most exceeding the posted speed limit of 25 mph from Mill Street down under the Highway 101 freeway to Lincoln Street. Forty-five to 50 mph is the norm, regardless of whether it’s up the small hill or down the hill — every vehicle is racing like there is no tomorrow.
So, here is a terrific opportunity for the city to make some big money writing tickets. My estimate is the city should be able to pocket a minimum of $1,000 bucks a day easy, by just placing a motorcycle cop near Hill Street and another at the bottom near Walnut. Warning: Be prepared to have replacement police officers available. Writer’s cramp is bound to happen.
