Increased Development Necessitates Red Light Cameras

Dear City Council Members,

I am writing in support of Adina Levin's email to Council. I agree that red
light cameras support Menlo Park's commitment to safety Vision Zero.

I would also like to point out that the areas in which the red light
cameras are located have experienced and are experiencing an unprecedented
amount of construction and development. This increase in density brings an
increase in residents and visitors walking and biking in our community. Now
is not the time to relax traffic enforcement.

Just think about the corner of Ravenswood and El Camino. Last year the City
Council approved the new Guild project. One of the justifications for the
lack of parking for this project is its proximity to Caltrain. In fact,
most of our new developments coming online covered by the Downtown Specific
Plan (Stanford at 500 El Camino, Greenheart at 1300, etc) tout a "Transit
Oriented" focus. How can the City on the one hand approve projects based on
walk-ability and then make the main intersections that need to be crossed
more dangerous to walk?

Please maintain your commitment to safety and keep the red light cameras,
with this vendor, or another.
