followup to Office Hours Meeting

I was very sorry to miss the meeting last weekend but wasn't able to make
it due to logistics with my 4 children. Here are my 3 requests:

1. *Make Alpine a no truck zone* as it makes the already very dangerous
conditions even scarier.

2. *More police presence during the times when children are walking to the
school bus* (7:30 am and 8:10 am on Alpine and Bishop Lane). Police seem
to only patrol if I call and ask them to come, and then the enforcement
tapers off quickly. The bus driver has a lot of trouble merging back into
traffic and people try to go around it driving at high speeds. A few weeks
back, a 5 kindergartener was almost run over when ran to meet the bus after
waiting on the bench when a driver zipped up Bishop at a high speed. We
call out the neighbors when they speed, but apparently, there is now an
Airbnb house so it makes it difficult to keep track of everyone.

3. * Create pauses in traffic so we can turn left onto Alpine Road.* I
know that we don't meet the criteria for a signal light. We should change
the criteria or make special accommodations so that there is not a near
accident or an actual accident when making a left turn.

Thank you!
