On Friday, July 2, at 10:35 p.m., pedestrians on the boardwalk in Mission Beach had to act quickly to get out of the way as a taxi sped by them.

Yellow Cab number 1013 alarmed dozens of people strolling along Ocean Front Walk near San Juan Place; the cab proceeded north along the boardwalk. The nearest entrance for a vehicle to access the boardwalk is San Luis Obispo Place. The taxi traveled at a high rate of speed along the street that prohibits non-emergency vehicles before exiting on Santa Rita Place.

This is the second time in the past few months that a Yellow Cab has been seen illegally driving on the boardwalk.

I remember that previous story. Different cab. Wonder if it was the same cabbie?

Something about this story smells like the back of a cab? Is it really possible for this guy to have witnessed the exact same thing, in the exact same area, over three months apart? I'm just asking??? Maybe it is the same cabbie and he has a magnetic number, so he can change the last digit of the cab every night? Or maybe he's a coyote and is picking up illegals coming off the beached boats. Or just maybe he's from a foreign county and doesn't read English well enough to know the Boardwalk is not a road? I pick this answer!!!!! Hang in there Barry, you'll see a lot of stuff to report about, on the Boardwalk, between 10:35 p.m. and 2:28 a.m. Looking forward to more!

Go to lunch, visit friends, grocery shopping, running errands, out for drinks, etc. How do you get to these places?. For me, ninety-five percent of this time is done on the Boardwalk in Mission and PB. For those not familiar, Mission Beach is a really small community with only one vehicular thoroughfare running thru it. Be here a couple of decades, and yes, you will definitely see the same things over and over again. Police and cars with drunken tourists ride along here sometimes, but taxis driving on the boardwalk are worth reporting. These drivers are licensed by the Sheriff Dept. and DO know better. Nice try to cut them slack by playing the language card, but that's really reaching. Why defend these guys when highly deserving groups such as the seals in La Jolla, the homeless everywhere and fifteen-year old girls who may not get Fifty-Cent to perform at their sweet sixteen party need help? Thanks for your comments and keep 'em coming...

Not surprising Barry, many things happen on that boardwalk. I love hearing about the madness now that I don't live there. Great stories Barry Meyer, keep them coming!!!
