My name is David Eckert. I own a home in the Linfield Oaks neighborhood.

First, I wanted to express how happy I am with the new left turn arrow at Laurel and Ravenswood! It has made that intersection, which is a very busy one, much safer and easier to use. I also really like that cars can no longer turn right off of Ravenswood onto Alma. Again, it feels much safer now. Thank you!

Unfortunately, I'm not as happy with the new bike lanes on Santa Cruz. As a resident who loves and uses our downtown almost daily as a pedestrian, it seems to me that the addition of more bikes downtown has made it more dangerous for walkers. Bicyclists tend to not stop at stop signs, come right at you in the crosswalk, etc. In general, most of them seem to not know the rules of the road. I'm not sure what the solution to that is, but making an effort to keep bikes out of heavy pedestrian areas would seem to be a good idea.

Thank you!
