Has anyone else seen the bull crap the county has pulled on Arden Way at Mission? It's no longer a normal suicide lane. Now it has two regular turn lanes with white lines, but because of the way Mission doesn't go straight across Arden, the turn lanes are backwards. Now, stupid drivers are blocking a lane on Arden Way because they're afraid of blocking the other turn lane. I wish I could explain this better, but it's just so bass ackwards it's ridiculous!  :)

I drove by and saw the turn lane, but didn't see any cars blocking Arden Way, but I could see how it would be a problem...

It looks like people are getting over it. I haven't seen anyone do it since.

Even though that post is a couple years old, I spoke too soon! If anything it's gotten worse and will be getting worse, IMO. If you look now, there are skid marks all over the place showing the confusion, accidents, or near accidents that this change has caused. I contacted the county and, apparently, they are going to put an unnecessary stop light there, which will create more congestion, waste more gas and pollute the air more with idling cars. Same with the new speed bumps on Mission Ave.

The stop light construction is scheduled to begin March 2010 and may go through Sept. 2010. It will go to the board for approval later this year and we can attend to voice our concerns, but we already missed the public meeting in March.
