dont let money or budgets dictate weather or not you are going to be safe or not. people in general Read Moreare good. and they will help if they have to. this guy grabing women should have been caught within a week or so. I guess if i have to cuff this guy myself I will. I have military training.

That is our enduring problem - planning by traffic engineer. Traffic v. pedestrian problem?Read MoreRemove the pedestrians. Eliminate crosswalks. Discourage walking. Traffic v Bicycle problems? Ditto. Viola! problem solved! It is as if the the city and it leadership are 30+ years behind and still clueless about the term "Latent need". Coined in the 80s from Los Angeles experiences - basically, if you add more lanes, you will also shortly add more traffic. Dee - we DO have a freeway running through our city. Multiple actually. And our leadership's only viable answer is to keep doing the only thing they know - add more lanes! And they fail to see that that just keeps increasing motor vehicle traffic and eliminating pedestrians and bicycles. (But - it does help developers sell new houses around us.) Currently that is the widening of the Treat/Clayton intersection. The intersection is already huge and a impediment to pedestrian crossing. Yet we still have a decent number of pedestrians there, but we can eliminate that by making the road wider. And why do we need it wider? for a period of 1-2 hours 5 days a week. If we got rid of the short cut traffic using Concord as their freeway to get to Antioch/Pittsburgh, etc. we could have the same effect.
