It seems many are making use of a short cut through the Winston Shopping Center at the corner of Hickey and El Camino Real, right next to the drive thru Jack in the Box, partly to avoid the red light cameras. Others cite the reason to be a way to cut through to avoid the traffic that backs up at the signal as well. KRON 4 News Video-Journalist STANLEY ROBERTS has busted this practice in a piece he recently posted to Youtube and to our Facebook page.
While the California Vehicle Code does not list this as a violation, yet the City of South San Francisco has adopted an ordinance making it illegal to take a short cut through private property unless you have the property owners permission. It is important to also know it is not a moving violation, yet speeding that we see through parking lots is a moving violation and has more potential hazards of accidents.
