Iíve noticed that the extensive painted warnings for bicyclists entering the ďSĒ 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.
Iíve 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 ďheads upĒ (and Iím thankful the township didnít see fit to add yet another stop sign for ďsafetyĒ purposes). Thatís why I donít understand why the markings are now gone, does anyone know the answer to this?
