Don’t make traffic problems worse; Vote ‘No’ on Prop J

Are you kidding me? I cannot believe that reducing Camino Del Mar to one lane in each direction is going to reduce traffic. It is implausible that the expert traffic engineers are correct in their report.  Maybe the traffic count studies are at inappropriate times and the data is flawed.  Maybe their assumptions about the volume of eastbound and westbound traffic and pedestrian crossings (or something else) are erroneous and lead to flawed conclusions.

I have sat in traffic on northbound 101 where two lanes of traffic are reduced to one and trying to get through the signal at Carmel Valley Road — the wait can be as long as 45 minutes.  I saw what happened when the City Council experimented with reducing southbound Camino Del Mar to one lane a few years ago.  We all know we already have a problem with spillover traffic onto residential streets. It is inexcusable to make it worse. Vote “No” on Proposition J.  Or at least, act grown up enough to stop stealing the yard signs urging a “No” vote.
