how about improving the pedestrian safety around freeway on/off ramps? someone just got critically injured yesterday at that death trap where I-5, barbur and capitol highway converge, there's tons of places like this around the region. we go out of our way to idiot-proof roads for motorist's own self-inflicted crashes with sand barrels, barriers and crumple-on-impact railings everywhere but do nothing about protecting innocent pedestrians from reckless motorists who injure or kill.

Hundreds of spam comments come in every day and we do try to zip the few that get past the filters... but now that y'all have commented on it extensively, I guess it will have to stay. :-)

You should change the url of the link to example.com so he doesn't gain Google juice or clicks.

It just amazes me how much money is floating around in this country for various projects!
But there is a "recession" isn't there?
I must be confused or dreaming.
