Letter: Even Measure T opponents create trafficTo those who condemn Measure T because they have now anointed themselves experts on traffic, I say this: Traffic is not just other people.
Traffic is also you. To these nay-sayers of Measure T, I must ask, do you own a car and if so, why? Do you drive to work? Do you shop? Drive your kids to school? Drive to the City Council meetings? I hope you can see where I'm going with this.
Life is a constant balancing act of a thousand and one things; most grown-ups know that. The mail trucks that delivered the fliers which condemned Measure T for creating traffic contributed to creating traffic in the act of delivering that flier.
The Gateway team and the city of Menlo Park has put together a package that both sides find acceptable, not perfect, but acceptable.
Only the narrow-minded and extremists demand perfection and only on their terms. To such individuals I would respectfully suggest you consider selling your car and buy a horse or risk being called a hypocrite. To the grown-ups in our city I ask, please consider voting yes on Measure T.
