While I am confident this council will continue the practice of improving
public safety, after my experiences today, I wanted to voice my support for
the solutions that place pedestrian and bicyclist safety above other public
use of Middle Ave.

I also wanted to express that excellent design is probably not enough.
Enforcement is needed too. I was nearly broadsided on Bryant in Palo Alto
this morning by a car that didn't heed a stop sign. A week ago my wife and
I were nearly hit head on (also on Bryant) by a car that once again -- blew
a stop sign.

This afternoon (on my bike again), I signaled left and was stopped on
Oakdell, waiting for traffic to clear. A car came up behind me and started
to cut inside (i.e. to my left and rolling through the stop) to make a left
turn. His view northbound was restricted by a brush cutting crew so he
really didn't see that there was south/westbound traffic on Santa Cruz that
would have hit him if he continued on his way.
