Everett is parallel to University, they do not cross.
Everett has no lights that I am aware of.
Maybe he is just a jerk?
Maybe she did something really egregious?
Maybe he bought his spandex a couple sizes too small?
I have seen a biker in Palo Alto that cuts off cars at lights and flips off and yells when he is in the wrong, I formed an opinion that he was a bit of an impatient hot head. Most bikers I see stop for lights, few stop at stop signs though, but most stop at lights.
But ponder this, why dont cars obey the speed limit?
I think it has just become an unwritten Palo Alto rule of thumb.
Cars dont drive 25 on Embarcadaro or Middlefield, or 35 on Alma.
Bikes dont pay attention to stop signs
Pedestrians ignore traffic lights downtown.
Not defending any of these, just noticing that all forms of traffic in this town have a section of the law they flaunt.
