    How can Fair Oaks ever catch a criminal, when there are no police there EVER? I see crashes there all the time, and police only come after the crashes. How about a dedicated car or two to for traffic patrol to make these speed demons behave? People will drive 55-70mph down Fair Oaks or Sunrise, Sunset, Winding, San Juan, and other roads, and it only gets worse.
