    HWY 4 is always a SPEEDWAY – either direction between OAKLEY and PINOLE. I rarely see CHP or any other law enforcement officers out there on patrol. EVEN when driving TEN OVER the posted limit a person risks getting rear-ended by those jokers “flying” down the highway… some of whom abruptly change lanes so they won’t have to slow down.

    Highway 4 on the Far East Bay side is one big danger zone. Hope you’re driving a tank because your life is in greater danger driving to and from here.
