Description

Since the new bike lanes went in on Grand serious back ups have been accruing in the morning on school days as busses block the east bound lane as they wait to take kids to preschool. In the past there was enough space for east and west bound to negotiate the blocked lane, but with the addition of the bike lanes the space needed to safely go around the busses has disappeared. This has not only caused great frustration, and excessive horn honking, but more importantly it has caused unsafe conditions for our children. When East bound cars see a rare opportunity to go around the busses by incurring into the west bound lane they tend to do so half-hazardly and with too much speed. Could someone please look into this for the safety of our children. By simply extending the spaces allotted to fit 5 school busses, instead of the current 2, between the hours of 7:30-8:30 this problem can be solved. Or at least send a traffic officer on these mornings. Please do what you can, I'd hate to see an child injured due to inaction.
