I’ve noticed that the extensive painted warnings for bicyclists entering the “S” turn on Altamont Road in Los Alto Hills have recently been sanded off. The attached PDF gives background to the warnings which were put in as a liability concerns mounted as a result of a spate of accidents in 2005-09.
I’ve been riding this stretch for 25 years and know how fast I can safely enter it. But I completely understand how the unwary can be taken surprise by it. I thought the road markings were an effective “heads up” (and I’m thankful the township didn’t see fit to add yet another stop sign for “safety” purposes). That’s why I don’t understand why the markings are now gone, does anyone know the answer to this?
