    I am glad that they cought these dangerous folks, but there are still planty of them out there. I was at the grocery store this morning. I was waiting there, at the parking lot lamp. A car,( black Honda Civic), whipped down Colorado Blvd. The car was going a good one hundred miles an hour. He ran through one black lamp, and continued on to Shotgun Willies.

    Regarding my comment, I was not the only one at the intersection. Two young women, were on their bicycles. They crossed Colorado Blvd at the intersection, where the guy had whipped through. They were not wearing reflective clothing, and they did not even have lights.
