A signal has been needed for years at Page Mill Road and the Highway 280 exits, but not at Alpine, at least not at current traffic volumn. As for regulating traffic along Alpine Road, if the San Mateo County Sheriff would just enforce the speed limit in the county area, the stretch of Alpine between Highway 280 and La Mesa Drive (Ladera), safety for all would be greatly improved. We've been asking for speed enforcement for years, but the County evidently does not earmark funds for speed control the way the Town of Portola Valley does. We need enforcement more than a we need a traffic light.

Aha! I wondered why I was suddenly seeing traffic cops at 280 and Alpine Rd. Stanford wants to expand, and Stanford must get what it want--neighbors be damned.

Yes, the evening back-up along Alpine between Sand Hill and Highway 280 is a fine argument as to why a stop light is indeed needed.
