The extra turn lane on Elm between Temple and Church threatens public health and safety by inducing unsafe speeds. I can think of a long list of ways in which the excess capacity on this portion of Elm harms our lives; however, I will spare you the details because I'm typing this on my iPod. Suffice it to say that this extra turn lane is an economically inefficient use of valuable public space. Sorely-needed on-street parking would be a much better use of this lane.
