    While sitting in standstill traffic on the bridge, waiting my turn to get onto 99, three passenger vehicles raced by all of us in the bus lane. I thought, “why do some people think they’re above the rules? The rest of us would love to race over the bridge in the morning, but we follow the rules. I wish there were cops here to enforce the bus lane.” And to my delight, when I got close enough to see, there was a police officer there! He pulled over every one of those bus lane violators by stepping out into the lane and waving them over. Made my day!

      Love this! Thanks for the report. Wish the cops were there every day. And up at the illegal to cross double white lines area.

    I watch those cars everyday also and think of ways to stop Why not a camera mounted on bridge to record these cars,. Just like they do in school zones. Won’t thanks long for tickets to cover cost and then profit for the city to use for road repair.
