Questions not answered at meeting on One Paseo traffic impacts

The plain fact, obvious to anyone who had to suffer through the traffic presentation [at the March Carmel Valley Community Planning Board meeting] is that these two shills for Kilroy, I mean city traffic engineers, couldn’t or wouldn’t answer simple questions put to them by the board without going into long, rambling repetitive non-responses.

These folks seemed deliberately trying to not answer questions. Most needed only simple responses. I believe they were provided the questions prior to the presentation. Yet, it took what seemed hours to get through a few questions and most times these folks didn’t even answer the questions asked.

For instance, how is it that trips along Del Mar Heights Road would only be affected by less than one minute when two more lights are installed and 24,000 more trips by auto are on the road each day? Each light alone will stop you about two minutes.

Insert half-hour long rambling non-answer.

Rephrase question

Insert another half-hour long rambling non-answer.

Insert another half-hour long rambling non-answer.

Give up.

Even worse, it isn’t clear if these two folks did any independent research to come to any of their conclusions. Anyone who believes, for instance, like these two contended, that some folks are currently turning south from San Dieguito Rd. onto El Camino Real to get to Del Mar Heights Rd. in order to get on Interstate 5 north, instead of just taking Via De La Valle, to avoid traffic, but don’t think some folks might turn north onto High Bluff Rd. to avoid Del Mar Heights Rd. traffic seem to be not qualified to give opinions.
