Thank you for you comment. This issue is similar to the other issue you submitted, Request 6768219.
This photo is also dated April 21, 2019 - nearly 5.5 months ago.
In the future, please call the Burlingame Police Department at 650-777-4100 so that an officer can be dispatched to the location to issue a citation.
Assistant to the City Manager
Thank you for your care and concern. Yes, accessBurlingame is for reporting issues. Ideally, the reported issues are fixable. In this case, the Police Department cannot retroactively issue citations to illegally parked cars.
I would be happy to meet with you in person or by phone to hear your concerns and identify the best steps to ensure your suggestions are vetted and studied, particularly ideas you might have for keeping cars out of bikes lanes. Are you available to meet in person tomorrow? I will be in the office from 8:30-3:30. I can also meet by phone at 650-558-7229. Please let me know if this works for you.
I think there’s an assumption being made that issuing a citation means a problem has been fixed. That is not the case in this type of traffic concern, where people illegally stopping and parking their cars in areas they should not happens incredibly frequently. Some would describe it as a “pattern”. Will enforcement help? Maybe (can’t help but notice the Burlingame PD car waiting in the car wash queue in that photo). What will solve the problem? A street design that physically prevents people from stopping and parking where they shouldn’t.
And in regards to the canned “attend BPAC” response: Ive been attending BPAC meetings since last April. I watch all city hall meetings and TPSC meetings. I’ve met with not only the Vice Mayor but also Syed and Lisa in person to not only voice concerns about traffic but also complaints about some of the staff I’ve interacted with. So no, thank you. We will not be meeting in person.
