  1. I am very, very careful when crossing Alhambra streets, but even then I’ve had some narrow calls. At the main, busy streets like Fremont, I HIDE BEHIND A LIGHT POLE BECAUSE CARS COME SPEEDING DOWN,many times some cars go through a red light trying to beat the light. Pedestrians are easy targets crossing Fremont (and Commonwealth), because the pedestrian “walk” signal changes even before one reaches the midpoint spot (crossing the intersection) – VERY, VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION. Seems city officials are more concerned with easing traffic, AT PEDESTRIAN’S EXPENSE. PEDESTRIANS IN ALHAMBRA ARE AT RISK.
