  1. I spent about 10 minutes today at an intersection near an elementary school. Not one car stopped for the ‘recommended’ three seconds at any of the 3 stop signs. Some rolled through it, some slowed a bit, some didn’t even press the brake, but NOT ONE car came to the mandated stop sign behind the crosswalks. Another parent stopped with me and said they need to hire a guard to protect the children crossing here….and this is one block away from the school. Slow down SB. STOP at stop signs and crosswalks with children/pedestrians. Parents want to have the kids walk to/fro school but the drivers in this city are absolutely reckless and make the street dangerous for children and adults. Vision Zero has zero chance in Santa Barbara. What a shame.
