The week of Dec. 30, Santa Rosa police will be monitoring one of the city’s most collision-prone intersections, Petaluma Hill Road and Kawana Springs Road, which  last year was tied for seventh place with six collisions.

As part of a weekly Monday through Friday 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.

Casino” onto Commerce Blvd. or Petaluma Hill Rd. and fail…”Splat.”"

    Back in July I read on your blog a plan to update the signal at E.Washington to southbound highway 101 once the construction was over. It’s been a month with no update to traffic signals. Can you email caltrans and city of Petaluma on when this traffic signal will be updated.

    Good, but also place Officers from Rohnert Park Express Way to Crane Canyon Rd to stop the speeders!
    Just today I witnessed a corvette pass at least 10 vehicles over a ‘double yellow line’ at a speed well in excess of 80mph.
