Safety first for Menlo Park Children on the roads

Dear council members,

As you consider transportation policies for the City of Menlo Park, I ask
that you reaffirm safety as our top priority for transportation planning,
and ensure that any additional goals will not compromise safety.

My son rides and walks from our home in Menlo Oaks to Encinal each day as
it gives him a sense of independence, provides him with brain-stimulating
fitness and has the extra bonus of relieving traffic congestion. We prepare
for his trips with great care and caution, but he is so small amidst all
the distracted drivers. It's an unfair match-up, really. I worry for his
safety every single day and I breathe a sigh of relief each time he gets to
school or home safely. We are so lucky in Menlo Park to have a community
that supports children getting to school on their own, please don't
compromise this safety. If anything, give me and other parents reason to
believe that our children will be better protected as they travel to and
from school.

Thank you,

Francesca Segre
700 Menlo Oaks Dr.
