Here's something that can be accomplished in the year ahead.....stop the dopey traffic calming blockades all over town and fix the pot holes.

Yes, stop the dopey traffic calming. And please stop narrowing the lanes so that buses, vans etc. don't fit in them.

And please don't eliminate right-turn-red lanes like the city has recently done at Middlefield and Embarcadero. All this does is cause more backups.
