Ok so over the last year public works has put in several roundabouts on College Avenue with the hope to slow down traffic. In doing so they reversed the direction of the two-way stop at College and Columbia. Most recently they removed the roundabout at College and Hanover and changed the direction of the two-way stop at College and Columbia back to the way it was! Despite all of this it hasn't worked to slow traffic. Add to that people almost never stop at the stop sign at College and Columbia. At least 10 times a day (well evenings) I see people slow, look and then just run the stop sign.
Instead of having public works spend money on pointless traffic controls why don't they have PAPD doing some actual traffic enforcement instead? Speaking of traffic enforcement I'd love to see an officer pulling people over for running the red light for the left turn from southbound El Camino Real to eastbound Embarcadero. Three or four times I a week I see a car run that light -- they're still in the intersection when the El Camino northbound light turns green one this week was even an AC Transit transbay bus.
Oof. I tired of all these selfish drivers.
