    Construction fencing and signs block driver's view of the crosswalk across Central Expressway.

    What can make a crosswalk that’s poorly visible to right-turning cars even worse? Adding opaque construction fencing that extends to the curb. Where I had hopes of improving this risky crossing, what’s there now is downright deadly. The fencing and sign need to be moved or removed today!

    Is it too much to ask people to walk a block out of their way to cross at a traffic signal?

How often do we ask drivers to make a one mile detour for the convenience of other street users?

    Crosswalk at Farley

    What is safer for school kids: having a cross-town bike and walking path run close by a school’s ball field, or moving it 150 feet away where it ends in the middle of a block on a 35mph 4-lane road? Should the threat of unauthorized adults near campus outweigh the threat of injury to children by motor vehicles due to bad trail design?

  7. El Camino Real Needs Shoppers on Bicycles to Thrive


    December 18, 2012 by ladyfleur

    All of these businesses are within 1.5-3 miles from my house. Too far to walk, but easy to bike.

    Comments by Corinne Goodrich, Program Manager of the Grand Boulevard Initiative on a radio show panel discussion prompted me to write this letter. Ms. Goodrich suggested that “parallel routes” to El Camino Real being are better for bicycles. I say this retail corridor needs people shopping by bike to achieve its potential.
