Protect your kids from the dangers of roads. I would not let my kid ride a bike (helmet or no helmet) anymore on local roads. Drivers these days are always in a hurry, never slow down, never obey the law. . . the times have changed. The Alameda is not a safe road; Woodside Rd is an accident-waiting-to-happen. I am surprised there are not more deaths on Woodside Rd. Sad. I hope Redwood City (City) takes a stand and slows cars down. People need to slow down! Ticketing is only a short-term solution. They need other traffic controls, cameras, etc. I don't trust the other guy.
