This was a light week for the County Sheriff on the Midcoast. The Sheriff’s reports says there were “Lots of calls, not many reports generated.” A man was struck by a car and his dog killed in Montara, and some things were stolen from an unlocked car.

Montara Blvd, Montara: Deputies were dispatched to a report of a subject struck by a vehicle. They contacted the subject who was standing over a dog that had been struck as well. The subject was only concerned for his dog which had expired from the injuries it had suffered. He was unable to recall the day, date or time of day. He was taken to the hospital for a medical evaluation.

That is so sad about the dog.  My condolences go out to him.  What is with some of the drivers around here?  Some are great, but some blow through stop signs as if they somehow necessitate a car to actually speed up and yet others must have misinterpreted the 25 mph to be 52 mph. 

Pay attention to those around you when you are driving.  Oh, and when you are driving, please just drive.  No cell phones, no ducking down to pick something up, just plain old paying attention to the road and those that are on it or may cross into it.

Thanks.
