Request for 2018 work plan

Dear Councilmembers,
I am writing to ask you to include improving the crossing at Middlefield & Santa Monica/Linfield in your 2018 Work Plan.  I am a resident of Vintage Oaks who commutes by bicycle daily to Stanford across that crossing.  I have two children who will soon be of age to bike to Burgess and Hillview.  I can personally attest that the crossing is unsafe as is.  Even though I always put the flashing lights on and walk my bike across the crosswalk, cars zoom right on through at high speeds.  I have nearly been hit on a couple of occasions -- once with my child.  It seems that even marginally inattentive drivers fail to notice the flashing lights, and I understand why, because even when I look for them while driving they aren't very visible.  Given the Fire Department's support for installing a more effective signal, improving this crossing seems like a no-brainer.  Thank you for attending it it.
Kind regards,
Michelle Mello
