What Are The Cops Doing On Ravenswood Ave?

Original post made by Curious, Menlo Park: The Willows, on Oct 5, 2007

For the third time over the past week or so, I've seen a couple of cops hiding behind the bushes on that little street just beyond the railroad tracks when you're on Ravenwood Ave heading towards El Camino right around 5 PM.

They're probably enforcing the "Right Turn Only" signs at Ravenswood/Alma...drivers making a left onto Ravenswood from Alma as they pass the library are in violation of the signs at that corner from 4-6 pm. Read the signs everyone and be careful!

No, VJ, it can't be that - each time I've seen this, a couple of cars have been pulled over while I've never ever seen anyone trying to make that illegal left turn at that time - probably because the traffic is always so heavy then.

Just by what I saw, I tend to think this is just some random pullover to check your license/registration. It can't be for DUI, as this occurs at 5 PM - too early for that.
