    Thanks for covering this local story. This is really an unnecessary step for SFPD, who are up to their arms in alligators this year with 20 grow houses in the Sunset, 10 cars broken into each night, and all the rest of the usual craziness. Still, it's hard to really comprehend how bad the drivers here are. I'm all for multilingual signs, since many LICENSED drivers can't read English. The DMV unleashes these horrifically unprepared drivers on the populous, with disastrous results. Anyone with a pulse and $250 is driving around the city, with little recourse for breaking laws. No wonder there is little regard for laws here--there is a cultural sensitivity litmus test every time they are broken. Aaaargh!

    I previously thought Mayor Newsom might be worthy of consideration to be our next Governor but now that he is endorsing this idiotic “20-minute” lead-time for scofflaws (regardless of their immigration status) has convinced me I that his leadership is truly not for me or California. I am disgusted with myself for thinking that Mr. Newsome’s previous indiscretions were simply an isolated bad decision on his part. I now realize that he truly is a worthless TURD and I will never support him again after this latest display of his ignorance and his selling out to win over a certain demographic.
