Is there a possibility for some of those funds to be used to enforce the no cell phone use in the downtown area?
And to enforce stopping at stop signs. It doesn't seem like anyone respects stop lines any more--they seem to be treated by most drivers as "yield lines", at best.
How about enforcing sight triangles at corners?
Not only are many bushes interfering with lines of sight, some trees are growing in the areas where nothing above a couple feet should be allowed. These compound the dangers of motorists who don't stop where they should, endangering pedestrians, bikers, and other motorists.
The problems exist downtown and in almost every neighborhood.
Please don't park oversized vehicles like SUVs, trucks, or minivans near crosswalks. They block drivers' vision so they cannot see pedestrians, especially when they are distracted to begin with.
There are lots of speeders on Sharon Road between Alameda and Sharon Park Drive, and many on cell phones too. There is a school there and kids walking. Would like to see an antimatter laser ray to deflate the tires and a microwave radio control to apply the brakes and an RF jammer to cut off the cell phone calls of speeders. Or at least some better speed limit signs.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
