Stop funding the South Lake Union Streetcar

The South Lake Union Streetcar serves a route that is easily served by a bus. The streetcar disrupts car traffic causing congestion throughout the Mercer corridor and often back to I-5 as it is not coordinated with the street lights. The streetcar has very low ridership and cannot support itself financially. Other transit methods could serve commuters in this area at a lower cost.

No more suggest traffic speed signs!

Immediately stop any further funding or future installation of those ridiculous new lighted signs that supposed regulate traffic speeds on I-5. The first time I saw them, all northbound lanes were inching along at about 3-5 mph and the signs were brightly lit, indicating we should be going 45. The next time I drove up the same stretch -- just south of downtown Seattle -- it was the same ridiculousness, The lit indicated ...more »

No more "road diets"

Quit spending precious SDOT funds eliminating road capacity on arterials for "road diets" and bike lanes. Not to mention all the money saved by eliminating all the studies and public meetings associated with these "road diets." Our limited resources should go towards maintaining our crumbling roads, not reducing capacity in a growing city!

No parking fee increase: it will make the citizenry hostile to the goverment, and stop people from driving into Seattle.

Eliminate bicycle boxes

I suggest that you eliminate the budget for the new green bicycle boxes. These boxes cost $15,000 and do nothing to improve freight mobility. We need to focus on important priorities, not pet projects for a privileged few.

STOP Replacing perfectly good CEMENT wheelchair ramps

Stop replacing perfectly good cement wheelchair ramps with cross hatching, with the new yellow plastic bumpy ramps. The old ramps are perfectly good and in good condition, yet I see crews of 8 people ripping out 1 after another and taking several days to replace with the plastic bumpy ones.

Bicycle licenses

I suggest you...create a very inexpensive licensing fee for cyclists, as well as issue tickets to cyclists who don't obey rules of the road. Why do cars have to subsidize all road repairs and updates if we're increasingly moving to a bicycle-friendly transportation model? We also need to realize that bicycle and bus travel is simply not feasible all the time. These modes of transportation are at times very difficult with ...more »

Disabled Parking Benefits

I suggest you...end the current benefit to disabled drivers, providing them with free parking on the streets of Seattle. The abuse is rampant and many street spaces are full of disabled placards which stay all day while they work and prevent others from using these popular short-term stalls in the city's core....not really a new idea, perhaps even limit their free parking to two hours so the spaces are avialable to other ...more »

CANCEL FUNDING FOR NEW TRAFFIC CIRCLES

Cancel all funding for new traffic circles. There are enough traffic circles in our neighborhoods and in a time of recession, we shouldn't be paying for these. When we have lots of money we can start making more.
