• Free “California Rolls” in Alhambra


    By Winston Chua

    ALHAMBRA – Have you ever thought about teaching your kidshow not to drive? Or have you everwondered what a true “California Roll” is? Well, take them to the intersectionof South Curtis Avenue and West Norwood Place, or Curtis and West Glendon Way,for that matter. That’s where drivers are putting on dangerous clinics on howto run stop signs without getting caught.

    “It’spretty bad. We’ve noticed because we drive a lot, we’ve seen it and it’s constant,”said Rome Garza, who lives on the Curtis block in between the Norwood andGlendon Way stops. “People just run right through the stop signs.”

    Garza andhis wife were almost run down after a driver failed to notice them crossing thestreet on Curtis. Invited by Garza to see how bad things were, the Tribunewitnessed about a dozen cars speed through the stop signs in a 15 minute timespan.

    This isincredibly frustrating for Garza, who sees countless cars break the rules atall hours of the day, but mainly when he gets home from work. He has even goneto speak with the Alhambra City Council and talked to Alhambra police whoassured him that something would be done. The Alhambra Police Department saidthat since August 19, they have been sending out more units into the area, butthat their presence is not detected because Garza may or may not be home. Thedepartment said they will release their findings in about a week and a half forthose who are interested.

    CouncilmanGary Yamauchi said that the city may look into investigating the matterfurther, possibly sending its traffic commission to analyze the problem.

    Nevertheless,more than two weeks after addressing authorities and even contacting the police,Garza still has seen no progress. He has seen just one police officer. Somewhatsurprisingly, that officer alsospedthrough the stop sign himself!. He will try to remind the city council of theissue as soon as possible.
