What a deal???. EPA needs all the assistance it can get. The city is NOT doing its task of enforcing the LAW. It would be a very very rare ocassion to see anyone speeding on University Avenue on the "Palo Alto" side of 101, BUT VERY VERY FEW DRIVE BELOW 35 ON THE EPA side of the same road. Stop signs are ignored or barely acknowledged. There are vehicles driven at fast speeds on many of EPA roads.
When suspected drug activities are called in EPA police take their time and ofcourse go with sirens blasting to warn of suspected offenders that police are on the way.
Vehicles stay parked on the same spot for weeks and nothing happens, some of these vehicles do not even dispaly current tags. These vhicles do NOT belong to residents within the local community.
The city has been taking its time to address policing activities. Now with the Sheriffs unit gone, what next. Back to being the murder Capital of the country.
