Letter: Beware of dangerous Atherton intersection

I hope that the Atherton City Council does not have its collective head buried in the sand in regard to the big traffic impacts we can expect from the proposed library in Holbrook Palmer Park.

Within the past two years there have been three serious accidents at the corner of Watkins Avenue and El Camino Real, two of which resulted in deaths. We don't need further traffic at that corner.

And unless a traffic light is installed at Watkins and Middlefield, that, too, will become an untenable situation (being close to such already). In short, Holbrook Palmer Park is a poor location for the very popular public library which so many of us revere.
