Civil Grand Jury Seeks Applicants

The San Mateo County Superior Court is accepting applications to serve on the Civil Grand Jury term from 7/1/17 to 6/30/18. The Civil Grand Jury performs a vital independent citizen watchdog function over county and city governments. It chooses its own investigation subjects and publishes reports that highlight findings and make recommendations for improvement. County citizens able to commit an estimated 15 to 20 hours/week to this effort should apply by March 30, 2017.

Road Rage: Pacifica Tailgater Guilty

Guilty As Charged

News Story

Remember this: No matter how crazy that "other" driver behaves on the road, do NOT react, speak, gesture, take any kind of defensive action, or even have eye contact with the aggressor. Law enforcement advises avoiding conflict altogether. If you can, pull over safely and let the aggressor go by. You may have to swallow your pride, anger, and sense of injustice, but it is not worth getting into a fight or worse. Let it go!
