Posting a link to a Los Altos newspaper article about planned enforcement action against cyclists descending between Moody and Arastradero on Page Mill allegedly in response to a couple of recent solo accidents but I think in reality due to local residents' anger about the death of Kathleen Greene who was struck by a cyclist just past the entrance of Foothills Park (note: to my knowledge the cyclist wasn't charged with any violation(s) in conjunction with the accident). Note also the inflammatory language used by the LAH councilman in the article.
I have no idea what the criteria for enforcement is going to be as there are no stop signs that can be run between Moody & Arastradero. All I can think of is targeting someone going 5 mph over the speed limit--which I think is between 25 & 30 mph depending on the stretch of the road.
If it is true that the accidents involving septuagenerian (or nearly so) riders is the main reason for the crackdown-- does that raise a question about what a maximum age limit s/b for someone riding a demanding and technical descent like PMR? I know every case is different, but I don't expect to be doing "it" at 70. I just think my reaction and visual acuity just won't be as good a when I was middle aged (or obviously younger). Anybody else have thoughts or ideas about their own personal expectations?
