Kathy - sorry - I had that confused with another intersection. I was at the Dipsea a few days ago, parked where the fruit stand used to be - and had to crouch under the road to get to the other side! Cars go WAY too fast. I was thinking the intersection at Tam Junction could use a traffic officer. duh.

I know exactly what you mean. The problem is I myself can be both the impatient pedestrian and the angry motorist. How do I respect these two sides of myself? Making crosswalks and bike paths helps a lot, it seems to me, to create the reminders that we all need to respect others!

Another dangerous and poorly designed intersection (by today’s standards) is indeed the intersection of East Blithedale and Ashford Avenues as noted in the article. This intersection needs to be completely redesigned for better safety and traffic flow. Please read more by going to the following link: http://millvalley.patch.com/articles/crash-snarls-evening-traffic-on-east-blithedale. Also, how about widening the small portion of Blithedale between the two merging points of Ashford and Lomita. This makes no sense to funnel traffic from four lanes to two and back again.

Annie, you are so right. My kids have had to run out of the cross walk rather than get hit, been hollered at by motorists not wanting to stop, and even experienced MV police ignoring their presence waiting to cross.

Be very careful at the Melrose Avenue and LaVerne Avenue intersection, for chances are decent someone along LaVerne is going to blow right through. This, I do not understand.
