San Mateo County may have a moratorium on broadcast roadside spraying of herbicides, but that isn't helping some county residents who were informed this week that the California Department of Transportation plans to spray herbicides along Highway 84/La Honda Road from the coast to Skyline Boulevard on Friday, Nov. 18.

I would like to know more about the moratorium. Last Summer a SM county truck was spraying Round Up at 3am in the sidewalk cracks and roadside. They had lights, a noisy generator (which woke me up)and a man with a long hose attached to a following truck. This was confirmed when I asked them what they were spraying in the middle of the night. The residents were given NO notification, which is par for the course but ALWAYS surprises Supervisor Jacobs-Gibson.

Why not just cut the weeds. I'm one of those who likes to pick and eat blackberries that grow along the roadsides, but I had to stop after being informed about possible spraying.
