Stop signs on Wallea Dr.

I am Bob Caletti and I live at 605 Wallea Dr., Menlo Park (corner of Wallea
Dr. and San Mateo Dr. nearest Middle Ave)


I was at the Transportation hearing and this is what I got:

. First off there was only one complaint filed in regard to safety
at that corner

. I didn't get that there was any confusion from drivers, there are
many intersections in Menlo Park like this and they don't have stop signs

. The sight distance on Wallea Dr. looking down San Mateo Drive is
at least 300 feet which seems more than adequate

. I have lived on this corner nearest Middle Ave for 44 years and
there has never been an accident there

. This is a bike route and there has never been a bicycle accident
on this corner either

. I have raised 5 kids at that location and never felt it was unsafe

. Do we put stop signs everywhere someone complains, even if there
has never been an accident there?

. There is light traffic on Wallea and it does not warrant a stop

. This proposed action is an overreaction to a complaint

. The traffic commission said they didn't want to put a burden on
the residents yet they are willing to do so with only one complaint filed

. The traffic commission stated that because someone filed a
complaint they would be liable if someone got hurt-I doubt that one
complaint would make the city liable

. Putting stop signs everywhere degrades the city, creates increased
pollution, and noise

. The City should do a survey of the people on Wallea Dr. to see how
many object to adding stop signs

. If the Traffic Commissioners had come out and actually seen this
corner they would have realized that it is safe


Thanks for your consideration,


Bob Caletti
