Santa Rosa motorcycle police officers this coming week will monitor one of the city’s most collision-prone intersections — Third Street at Morgan Street, which last year was tied for seventh worst with seven 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 was in a wreck at this intersection a couple of years ago. People exiting Highway 101 North routinely turn left from the lane that’s second from the left, which is designated as a straight-ahead lane only. Ever since I was hit by a van making an improper turn from that lane, I’ve seen a lane violation at this intersection every few weeks. Drivers in the left-most lane are allowed to turn left or go straight. An accident occurs when someone in the left lane goes straight and a vehicle in the next lane over turns into the car in the left lane. An easy fix would be to switch the left lane to a turn-only lane or to put up some better signage.

    The worst driving behaviors I see here everyday are drivers exiting highway 101 and turning Right to go underneath the mall. They appear to think that they don’t have a red light at all and therefore have control of all 4 lanes that go underneath. Many of them don’t even pretend to stop.
