Please Return a Firm "NO" on the Willows Traffic Plan

Dear Menlo Park City Council and Transportation Departments:

Please quit wasting time and money studying the nonexistant "traffic problem" in the Willows neighborhood.

Have you looked at the numbers for street segments surveyed in both 1992 and 2009? They were kindly provided by traffic commissioner Penelope Huang to a neighborhood news group, so I'm going to assume you have them at hand. If you were to add everything up, you'd discover that traffic in the neighborhood AS A WHOLE has actually dropped by about 300 cars per day in the intervening years.

Yes, traffic patterns through the neighborhood have changed. It's intuitively obvious to even the most casual observer that a tiny group of frontage-road residents have been pushing traffic away from their homes and towards the heart of the neighborhood since 1992, and the plan currently under discussion would make it much worse.

Thanks for listening,
