They were in the process of putting up school zone signs & lights on Potranco in the vicinity of Stevens HS today with 30 mph speed limit signs. Now you will make no time on Potranco rd... I asked a NSISD policeman if they were going to start ticketing the juvenile jaywalkers that caused this to happen...he just smiled.

You know, as I was driving through there today I saw them blinking and wondered how long they'd been there. I recalled someone mentioning it would be a good idea, but driving by today, they looked like they'd always been there. I was confused!

The real puzzler was that it was 3pm and the lights were flashing - but Stevens doesn't let out until much later...must've been testing 'em.

Didn't really notice a lag in traffic - but I don't travel that way often during the school day.

my wife said she almost hit someone on Potranco Thursday night. Wearing all dark clothes and not paying any attention after 9:00 PM. They DON'T need to punish the drivers, they need to punish the pedestrians. Once again I'm baffled by the retards this city seems to attract. I've never been anywhere that had problems like this. I used to think everyone knew that it wasn't a good idea to walk out in front of a car, but obviously I was wrong.
My son works security at a shopping center and he said he always has to call the police to get people that are sleeping in the parking lot or actually on streets. Just freaking amazing and I can't explain it at all. It's like absolutely no common sense what so ever.

Doesn't have to always be about fooling around - but it usually is!
Not just the Navy frowns upon this. While stationed with the 5AF at Yokota AB, Japan, the 3-Star General's aide (a LT Colonel) was fooling around with a female SSgt that worked for the aide. Both were married to someone else and both were fired. The LTC got the worst of it though as the ranking person in this type of relationship is the most responsible.
