Sidewalks on Santa Cruz ave

My son was hit by a car on Santa Cruz in 2007 while riding his bike in the bike lane. This occurred in the early afternoon while he was coming home from Hillview. The car was exiting a home driveway on Santa Cruz. The driver was headed in a forward direction when exiting, not backing out, so should have had the clearest view of the street and the bike lane. Due to landscaping and fencing that was located close to the street, the driver did not see my son. He was catapulted across the good of the car on impact. I am grateful to say the he only suffered scrapes and bruises.
Please invoke the city's right to take control of the strips of land that can be used for sidewalks. I have no doubt this would have prevented my son's bike accident. Protect our children; their health is worth some landscaping and some fences.
