    Re: Santa Clara story.

    I use that Benton/Monroe intersection. Very strange – they aren’t exactly what I would call high speed arterials.

    Note that there is a bike lane on Monroe and the only way they could add turn pockets would be to remove them. It’s a key bikeway as the nearby parallel streets *are* higher speed.

    His assertion that the roadway needs to be widened/curved at the corner to make turns “easier” would just make them faster – which is counter to safety.

    Maybe if they’d just install “no left turn” signs… or perhaps 3-way lights with arrows where only one direction has a green and green arrow at a time. Then they would not have to widen the street.

    Oh yay, don’t we all feel safer that tech buses with PROFESSIONAL drivers are being pulled over by the CHP for doing 7 miles/hr over the speed limit? While single-passenger, non-professionally-driven cars whizz past, cutting off other drivers, with drivers texting, eating, putting on makeup?

    The witch hunt continues on the Peninsula, it appears.

    He never was Mr Nice Guy when it comes to Muni. He never has given a hoot about Muni and its owner/riders, and never will. Maybe it’s time people woke up and didn’t vote for him in 2015 and sent someone else to Room 200 at City Hall who does?
