Dear Palo Alto

Dear City of Palo Alto,

Thanks to your incompetence or laziness, it took me over an hour to drive from Sunnyvale to downtown Palo Alto. From the moment I crossed into Palo Alto to the moment I reached downtown proper, Every goddamn light was flashing red!! That meant that every doofus had to stop, and do the "is it my turn yet" at every friggin' intersection!!

You had no police out to direct traffic, and relieve congestion, as far as I could tell. I saw a couple patrol cars, and they just continued on their merry way to a date with the donut shop. What were you thinking! At least the railroad crossings worked, but they aren't maintained by you.

If you like your tax base (businesses), you might want to revisit your archaic and assinine traffic policies.

No love,

Me.

P.S.: Even if I'd taken the train, I would have been risking my life to cross the street to get to work.

Yea, commuting down University this morning was a PITA, but the flashing lights mean the stop lights turn into stop signs. No danger, just slower progress, and a longer commute.

Most people forget how to handle those with multiple lanes in each direction. Middlefield and Alma were a mess.
