i’m late to this party, as the SFist scooped me, but here’s the scene last week just a block from my place on monterey as this driver provided literally a picture-perfect example of why the Friends of Monterey have been working hard to get those “Slow Down” signs up along the boulevard.
and this was before the rain came this week. conditions at the time were ideal … for a responsible driver using common sense and following the speed limit.
luckily, and almost bizarrely, nobody was hurt in this accident. but this happened a block away from st. finn barr elementary school, yards away from a heavily trafficked pedestrian crosswalk.
thanks to karen for the report and the photo.
