Woodside High grieves over death of freshman

Original post made on Dec 4, 2012

Sadness pervaded Woodside High School last week as students and teachers remembered Leyla Beban. The 14-year-old Redwood City freshman died Nov. 26 at Stanford Hospital after a bicycle accident involving a collision with an SUV around 8:30 a.m. at the corner of Jefferson Avenue and Alameda de las Pulgas, according to the Redwood City Police Department. She was on her way to school.

Protect your kids from the dangers of roads. I would not let my kid ride a bike (helmet or no helmet) anymore on local roads. Drivers these days are always in a hurry, never slow down, never obey the law. . . the times have changed. The Alameda is not a safe road; Woodside Rd is an accident-waiting-to-happen. I am surprised there are not more deaths on Woodside Rd. Sad. I hope Redwood City (City) takes a stand and slows cars down. People need to slow down! Ticketing is only a short-term solution. They need other traffic controls, cameras, etc. I don't trust the other guy.
