The convention center and community center theater project (3C) project did a very poor job of preserving access for walkers and bicyclists at the beginning. Some issues have been resolved, but some never have, though the project has now been going on for just less than two years. The most significant issue is that there […]

Though he was not specific, the law he may have been referring to is the section of California Vehicle Code (CVC) below.
