Maloney Lane

Dear City Council Members:

I live in downtown Menlo Park off of Hoover Street, near Oak Grove. I love
where I live because I can walk everywhere.

I've become very concerned about cars making left hand turns from Oak Grove
(West of El Camino) onto Maloney Lane (just before the post office and
Piccolo Restaurant). The dividing line at this turn is a double yellow
line, but cars turn anyway. Not only do they often block traffic turning
off of El Camino onto Oak Grove as they wait to turn, when they do turn,
they do quickly without looking for pedestrians crossing the roadway. I
assume they are either heading to Santa Cruz Ave and do not want to make a
U-turn on El Camino, or that they want to use the parking lot. Both could
be accomplished if they went down another block or two to Chestnut or Crane.

Because I walk the neighborhood everyday, I've seen many near collisions.
I've also seen a young boy on a bicycle get hit by a car.

We have the post office, a fire station, a busy El Camino intersection,
bicycles and pedestrians. It's very congested. And often quite dangerous.

I know you are considering putting a bike lane on Oak Grove, and I fully
support this. But please consider putting up signage or road barriers to
prevent left hand turns onto Maloney Lane and left hand turns from Maloney
Lane onto Oak Grove Ave.

Thank you for your time and for all you do for Menlo Park.
