Road is not broken

Dear Editor,

As Yogi Bera said, “It’s like deja-vu, all over again” for our county officials. Friday’s article “Residents voice opinions about Trinity” depicts our county public servants looking for ways to make driving down Trinity Drive far more difficult.

The “reasoning” (if one can dignify it by that name) is that traffic on Trinity has dropped by 25 percent over the last 10 years. So the “logic” goes that now is a great time to narrow Trinity down to two lanes and/or add a roundabout at a yet unspecified location.

This “impeccable” logic seems to originate from two consultants (Dugger and Zita) brought in by LA Walks. I suggest that we examine the credentials of these consultants. A web search shows that despite their impressive names, the companies they work for or own do not even have a physical address or a web site. Even Mr. Zimmerman commented on their lack of expertise!

I fervently support safe walking, enhancing pedestrian crossings and maintaining safe sidewalks. We should use our own common sense - constricting traffic and making life miserable for drivers does not support walking; it only adds to stress and frustration. Narrowing Trinity could not be conducive to safety and emergency access under any circumstances.
