Willows Traffic

Dear City Council Members:
We are requesting your help to deal with the willows cut through traffic because it is a huge safety issue. We are well aware of this because we have a six-year-old and a four-year-old girl and a boy respectively. Almost every day when we walk to the bus stop or back we see in example of unsafe driving. In the afternoons the driving even worse, with cars often driving down that morning drive at speeds in excess of 45 mph.

We need your help to act on this traffic in 2017, because in spite of residence taking efforts, this is a difficult problem that requires city input. We live in a neighborhood where we are scared to let our children walk on the streets unsupervised.

We realize this is not simple, we will work closely with the city to help with any plan. Willows Safe Streets is about increasing the safety of our streets by reducing the volume, and the speed, of cut-through traffic in the Willows
We urge you to make the reduction of Willows cut-thru traffic a city transportation goal in 2017, and for resources to be specifically included in the city's 2017 work plan. I hope we can improve this situation before somebody gets hurt.

Thank you for your attention to this.

—Brian Hargreaves, 346 Marmona Drive, Menlo Park.
