    I’d be interested in meeting with someone in your organization to discuss the impact of driverless cars and all the work you are doing.

    Dear Circulate SD,


    I just heard Maya talk at the Planning Comisson Hearing regarding the Serra Mesa plan amendment. She spoke a lot about pedestrian and bicycle access being important. However, I don’t know if you were aware that per the FEIR CEQA actually recommends the bicycle, pedestrian, and emergency access only. The reason they don’t support the project alternative is that several of the mitigations for the project alternative required staff to write a “statement of overriding considerations” to allow the removal of bicycle lanes in Serra Mesa. Therefore the proposed connection will have bicycle lanes that no longer connect because they need to be removed in order to accommodate additional traffic. This will discourage people from commuting on their bicycles which also reduces VMTs by taking cars off the road.


    I would urge you to consider only supporting the bicycle, pedestrian, and emergency access alternative only.


    Best,

    Adam Gardner.

    Dear Rep. of Circulate SD, My name is Mark Morici and I am the Principal at Loma Portal Elementary in Point Loma. I was referred to you by Hernan Baeza. VP at Logan Elementary. A critical goal for us here at LPE is campus and community safety. It sounds as though your program focuses specifically on those 2 things. I would like to request some info from you about what your program offers and how we can implement a safer commute for our families and students. Thanks in advance, Mark Morici

    I live and work downtown, and my commute is a 1 mile walk. Over the past year this commute has become more and more treacherous. Drivers just don’t care anymore, and there are no police on the streets to pull them over. As Jim Greene pointed out, there are plenty of idiot pedestrians out there too. However, I see far more people driving dangerously than walking out in front of traffic (though that does happen quite often).


    I have submitting over a dozen “traffic concern” reports, to which I have never received a response from the SDPD. Today on my 1 mile commute I was nearly hit FIVE TIMES by drivers not stopping at stop signs or red lights. Usually it’s about once every couple of weeks. I can only imagine how many injuries are going to happen this weekend during Comic Con…


    There seem to be two main issues that are making it more dangerous to walk (or bike, or drive) downtown: cell phones and the lack of traffic enforcement. People LOVE their cell phones. So much so that they will walk out in front of a train and get killed by it! Every single day I will see drivers on their cell phone as they run a red light or stop sign, almost hit a pedestrian, hold up traffic, etc. etc. I don’t even want to call them “smart” phones anymore because of how absolutely stupid they are making people. Then there’s the cops, or lack thereof. I can count on one hand how many cops I see on the road each month. With no cops enforcing laws, people will continue to break them, and break more of them. Didn’t get caught speeding? How about speeding while texting? No? How about speeding through a red light (like a trash truck I saw one day)? No? Try speeding through a red light while texting, I bet you still won’t get pulled over, even if you do it right in front of a cop because it will probably be the one that I saw sitting stopped at a green light texting and holding up traffic.


    So my question to this community is this: What can we do? I’ve contacted the police (many times), the mayor (multiple times) and even the governor. None of them seem to care that we’re out here getting injured or killed by drivers who are breaking laws that nobody is enforcing.

    A friend, a woman about 60, has been twice in 15 months by a car while in crosswalks. She is definitely someone who could testify for you if you are interested.

    Hi,

    I’m Natalie from DrivingSafely. We are a group of educators, parents, and instructors trying to do our part to make our roadways safer. Our next piece is a resource for minimizing distractions in the car. In doing research for this project, I came across your site and found it helpful. Thanks. I thought maybe your site might also benefit from some of these resources (maybe here: http://www.circulatesd.org/resources/ ).

    Thanks again.

    Interesting article that came out today, how America has gone from having the safest roads in the world in the 1970s to the deadliest in the developed world. Thought I might share:

    Greetings,


    My name is Scott Dye, and I’m a Harvard University Environmental Management and Sustainability graduate student living in San Diego. As part of my current research, I am working to get legislation changed in San Diego to allow tiny homes in more residential areas.


    I’m writing in hopes that your organization would be interested in discussing a partnership to raise awareness and support for this cause. Doing so would be beneficial to San Diego in many ways:


    - It would provide much needed affordable and sustainable housing options (especially to seniors and first time home owners)


    - These homes address two hot button issues: Homelessness and Water Scarcity


    - Tiny homes can be built very inexpensively which could provide housing to the homeless


    - Tiny living also requires less water, an important point considering our current drought


    Please let me know if you have any questions or can direct me to someone I could speak with about this in more depth.


    Thank you for your time!

    Hello,

    I am interested in learning more about your organization and lending some time as a volunteer as it relates to help foward any progress and advocate bicyclist and motorist safety here in San Diego. I was recently a victim of a serious hit and run accident while cycling here in north county and would be happy to share my story if it helps to further our cause.

    I read your editorial in Voice of San Diego and was disappointed that you, like so many others, leave the burden of pedestrian safety solely with drivers. Pedestrians need to take responsibility for their own safety. Just this morning, I had to yield to a pedestrian who was crossing against a red hand pedestrian signal, probably believing that as long as the auto signal was green, she had the right to cross.


    I am tired of watching hordes of ignorant pedestrians stand on corners, not pushing the buttons to give themselves the white hand signal that helps communicate to them when it safe to cross and when they should wait for the next cycle. As a lot of people don’t understand how pedestrian signals are supposed to work, perhaps you need to spend more time educating pedestrians. It could start in schools. At the corner of Park Blvd. and Upas St., I see students routinely ignoromg the pedestrian signal buttons. I’m sure this happens all across the city.


    At a typical downtown intersection, I never know when it’s safe to turn right on a red light, given that a pedestrian may, at any moment, cross against a red hand signal. Never mind the line of cars behind me, anxiously waiting for me to go ahead; I have to worry about the idiots afoot who may dash into my path without warning.


    If you really care about pedestrian safety, part of you plan should be to educate the walking public to safe pedestrian procedures, and enlist the police to crack down on stupid, unsafe pedestrian actions.

    I just posted this on California’s DMV page: I am a non-driver who just renewed my expired ID. Now I have been told by my new employer that the receipt I received, along with my expired ID will not serve as proof of my identification, so I must wait for up to 60 days before I can work there. What do most California non-drivers do to remedy this sort of situation? Does California offer a temporary valid picture ID while other non-drivers wait for their new IDs, in other cities than San Diego? How can this be a new question or issue?

    Hi ,


    Hopefully this is the best way to reach you.


    I found your website while looking for flower and plant care tips and wanted to say that I found your page here: http://www.circulatesd.org/resources/about-walking/walking-maps/golden-hill-community-garden-and-park-walk/ – to be a very helpful source of information. Thanks for putting it together!


    By the way, I found a couple of useful resources while reading up online and I think they can be good additions to that page as well:


    Flower Care Tips – Essential Guide on How to Care for Your Flowers

    https://www.arenaflowers.com/features/flower-care/


    Plant Care Guides

    Thought I’d return the favour by recommending these links for the benefit of your visitors. Let me know if you like them?


    Many Thanks!
