it is not like this is an isolated incident

parking...
there are a few simple issues that "if resolved" our roads would be a whole lot more civilized

1. PARKING
No Double Parking-especially in No Standing-No Parking Zones at Rush Hour
No Parking in the BIKE LANE
and
Delivery Trucks-Postal Trucks-Police Vehicles
rather than DOUBLE PARK... why not take a the legal space down the block and then walk
each and every day I see countless examples of these sorts of vehicles double parked when there is a vacant space just down the block
I guess that the space is not the only thing that is vacant.... especially if that double parker is a police officer or a meter maid parked so that they can go issue parking violations

2. DO NOT BLOCK THE BOX
cars need to slow and stop and wait before crossing the intersection
the way that cars all clog up the intersection by blocking the box is ignorant and uncivilized
that is one of the greatest hindrances of traffic during rush hour


3. COMPLETE STOPS AT THE STOP LINE
Cars need to make complete stops at the stop line
then of course... they should make this stop and access whose turn is next
the CALIFORNIA ROLL or what ever it is called...
it is funny... the bicyclist is being called out this
well... I am calling out the cars!
STOP AT THE STOP LINE
this will bring down the high speeds on short blocks
it will hopefully make street crossing more safe for pedestrians
and
it will help to give people their right to their turn at the four way stop
and maybe even prevent a few accidents
