My 6th grader could have designed a safer roadway, though she would have first asked why we'd need to put in bike lanes given this (safer) roadway already exists on Carolan Avenue. On top of that, what volume of cars & trucks is there compared to bicycle traffic (raising the question as to if this was even necessary). Maybe the Burlingame City Council was solving a problem that does not exist. Is there a benefit to having fewer lanes for motor vehicles? What happens in the event of some catastrophic event such as an earthquake or fire and people need to evacuate the area? My kid wonders whether city planners gave this any consideration. (Now, so do I.)

Wait until the years long construction on ECR begins and people shift to California to get through town…


Those raised pedestrian islands could take out a motorcyclist.
