Now that San Antonio Rd between Charleston and Middlefield Rd Southbound is paved and traffic lanes marked, it is a bit of wonderment to the rhyme or reason for the number two lane be used by both cars/trucks and bicycles. There is a parking lane next to the curb but no clear bike lane except in the second lane of traffic.
Is this a way of traffic calming in Palo Alto and are there plans to do the same on Embarcadero Rd both directions, Middlefield Rd East of Oregon expressway both directions, and Alma between San Antonio and El Camino in both directions? Should we also think of El Camino Real marking the third lane for bicycles and cars, trucks and busses.
