Increasing timed lights at Middlefield and Ravenswood

This email may be best forwarded to the city engineer or whomever is
responsible for timing city traffic lights.

During M-A school start and end times there is a huge amount of traffic
that clogs Middlefield, Ravenswood, Ringwood and El Camino that could
easily be mitigated by modifying the timing of the left turn lane lights at
Ringwood/Middlefield and Middlefield/Ravenswood twice per day. The left
turn lane lights should be kept on for a longer period of time for the
twenty minutes around school start and end times to account for the
increase in students/parents entering and exiting. The lights I'm
referencing are the left turn light from Middlefield to Ringwood and the
left turn light from Middlefield to Ravenswood. To keep the cycle the same
length the straight lights would be shortened. Proposed times outlined
below, coinciding with school start and end times.

The proposed change would improve traffic dramatically and for such a
little amount of effort.

Monday, Tuesday and Friday: 8:40-9:00am and 3:15-3:25pm
Wednesday: 9:15-9:35am and 3:15-3:25pm
Thursday: 9:20-9:30am and 3:05-3:15pm

Thank you for this consideration and I hope that the council sees that
slight doable modifications such as these greatly impact the traffic and
happiness of Menlo Park residents.
