Three Feet for Safety Act

Effective Sept. 16, 2014, AB 1371, also known as the “Three Feet for Safety Act,” took effect in California. The new law requires drivers of motor vehicles to maintain a distance of no less than 3 feet while passing a bicyclist. If a motorist cannot pass safely, the motorist must slow to a reasonable and prudent speed and pass only if there’s no danger to the bicyclist. The Corona Police Department will be conducting education and enforcement of these new California Vehicle Code sections within the City of Corona. Enforcement actions could include a warning or issuance of a citation for violations of the “Three Foot for Safety Act.”

Construction Heats up near 15/91 Interchange, Prado Road Bridge, Local Streets…

Construction activity is increasing along the project corridor, and the Riverside County Transportation Commission reminds drivers to slow down, be alert and watch for changing conditions. In August, crews shifted vehicles to temporary connectors from the southbound and northbound 15 to westbound 91. The northbound 15 to westbound 91 connector also was restriped, creating two through-lanes to Main Street. Crews also placed K-rail along the shoulder of the 91 to create a safety barrier between traffic and roadway widening work. Construction activity near the Prado Road Bridge also is under way, as well as work on E. Grand Boulevard and staging activities for various interchanges along the 91. On the 15, activities are focused in the median from the 15/91 interchange to Ontario Avenue.

Foodie Friday: Fish, Fish, Fish

During my years in the Marine Corps I traveled the United States and some of that time allowed me to visit some great fish restaurants, shacks and carts. Coming from Southern California this was a bit odd only knowing the hot dog carts from TJ, Baja California. Recently Corona has had some new fish establishments so what a great time to reminisce.
