PG&E work on Valparaiso Ave.

PG&E will be doing pole replacements and running new power lines along Valparaiso Avenue this weekend. The work involves using a crane which is one of the predicators for doing the work on the weekend to avoid weekday traffic impacts.

The work will increase the reliability of the electric service to the community.


Bicycle Safety

Under California Vehicle Code section 21650.1: "A bicycle operated on a roadway, or the shoulder of a highway, shall be operated in the same direction as vehicles are required to be driven upon the roadway." This means that you cannot ride your bicycle on the wrong side of the road facing oncoming traffic. If you are riding your bicycle against the flow of traffic, you are more likely to be involved in a vehicle vs. bicycle collision because motorists are not expecting you to be riding the wrong way. Plus, you would most likely be considered "at-fault" in a collision if you were riding against the flow of traffic.

And remember any person under the age of 18 must wear a properly fitted and fastened bicycle helmet while operating or riding upon a bicycle, a non-motorized scooter, or a skateboard, or who are wearing in-line or regular roller skates.

Please remind your children of these very important laws. It's for their safety.

Thank You!

Thank you for being a part of Atherton Online!
