Traffic along the Bryant St. Bike Blvd.

This evening I was riding my bike south on Bryant Blvd. from Menlo Park to California Avenue between 6:30 and 7 PM and was nearly hit 3 times by vehicles. Two drivers raced around me to squeak through lights that were changing and nearly ran me off the road. The third driver paused only briefly at a stop sign (I had no stop in my direction), then floored the gas to try and make it through the intersection before I could get there. I yelled at him to slow down, and he actually laughed.
Please, folks, if you are driving, SLOW DOWN near the bike boulevards. If you actually hit a bicyclist, you will be inconvenienced far longer than you would be by waiting for the person to pass.
And in case you're wondering, I made a full stop at all the stop signs in my direction.
