Santa Rosa motorcycle police officers this coming week will monitor one of the city’s most collision-prone intersections — Stony Point Road at Sebastopol Road, which last year was tied for sixth worst with eight collisions.

As part of a weekly, Monday through Sunday, special enforcement program, Officer Jeff Adams says officers particularly will be looking for drivers not wearing seat belts, who are illegally using cellphones, are speeding, running red lights or committing lane violations.

Each week, the officers pick one of the city’s top 25 collision-troubled intersections to monitor.

    I really hope they’ll watch for people flying thru the intersection as the light turns red. Every light cycle it happens over and over again. I’ve seen cops watch people do it, maybe they’ll actually cite them this week.

    I hope they CAMP OUT on the left turn going into the Cheveron station. More people run that red in an hour than most intersections see in a week. And no, getting “trapped” in there because of traffic by the gas station is no excuse. The driver is responsible for making sure the intersection is clear before entering.

    Plus there will be plenty of fun busting up drunken fights among the scumbags who go to MD market and then drink it up at the laundromat next door. Really, they should put a substation in at this intersection – the neighborhood would benefit.
