Do Arcata Bikers and Skateboarders have suicidal tendencies?
I was parked for a few minutes North of the Arcata Plaza just above H ST and 11 TH St. I have always noticed that Bikes rarely stop at the sign going down the hill on H. Sure enough, I saw a person going out of control trying to stop his bike with no brakes and he ran into a car making a right turn on 11 TH. The biker then just got back on his pedals and left the scene. Not hardly a minute later here came a skateboarder down the hill out of control. And split traffic through the intersection. A policeman was at the 11th Street stop sign as he whizzed pass. Do you think the cop pulled him over for being a safety hazard to traffic? Nope. I heard this behavior is common on H ST. I am surprised I don't hear about more injuries or even fatalities in Arcata.
