I am very fortunate to live in a very nice part of the SF Peninsula, in an area extremely popular with cyclists. Generally there is next to no traffic except for... The school run
If I leave for work at 7:30, everything is fine. If, however I delay for 10-15 minutes, there is gridlock at the bottom of the driveway. The line of SUV's carrying (individual) precious pumpkins to school is like something from a festival parade. On the opposite side of the road, empty 300 horsepower child transporter pods queue for the stop sign lower down the road.
It's very frustrating not to be able to leave one's own drive... I'm wondering what course (if any) I can take with the local authorities here. It's such a localised and relatively fleeting problem, but I detest the wall of traffic which besets our neighborhood every day. A letter is in the stages of composition, but has anyone else a view, or experience?
