Fremont St/Middle Ave. intersection!

I'm a long time resident on Fremont Street and a school teacher in PA. My
morning commute takes me down Fremont Street to Middle Ave intersection and
left heading towards the El Camino Real.

It's gotten very dangerous to make a left hand turn onto Middle, between
7-8am due to numerous cars parked on street, blocking visibility for other
on coming traffic-- vehicles, runners, and bike commuters most importantly
children on their bikes heading to school. In a car you're forced to inch
out into the street to look both ways with cars coming at both directions,
horns honking,etc. Add children on bikes, bikers, walkers, runners as well.
It's not an easy left hand turn and scary too.

I'm very curious if others have mentioned this to you. I don't recall this
being so bad in past years, until last few years. I'm wondering if you can
look into eliminating 2 parked car (spaces) at that intersection,
permanently to avoid inevitable collision and unnecessary danger for all.
This way everyone can see each other!

I appreciate you looking into this!

Thanks, Nancy Shorum
