Dear Billy T and Somerville Speakup Line,
I have been in and out of the Hospital for 2 months now. I am currently Driving down Broadway from Central St to McGrath Highway.
What a traffic disaster, ONE LANE. Who’s Idea was this Bus/Bike Only Lane. Name Please? Who is paying for it? I hope my taxes are not. I cannot use it so I should not pay for it.
Here’s an Idea! How about more Handicap spaces for the residents in Davis Square and all the squares. We are not a young only city. Davis Sq. ONE in front of Dunkin Donuts. Getting into the CVS is a parking nightmare. More on the Main roads in the squares are needed. We shop too!
I cannot wait to retire to move out of this city. I am the 4th generation Somervillian out of 6 generations.
I am a Proud Resident of Somerville, Schooled at St Ann’s, Northeastern Jr. High and the Somerville High School. Where learning and Friendships have lasted me my adult life. I find it difficult to say that now. I went to Somerville High in the 70’s when other people from other Cities and towns referred to us as Slummerville. I remained Proud.
The City has change with the times, some good some bad, but what about the residents who live here? I feel more is done for the people who pass through the City who do not pay the taxes. Why should Mass Transit and Bicyclists get there own lane. At least the Buses respect the Same Road Same Rules. Let’s make the Bicyclists do the same. Put an officer at major intersections and ticket them for not obeying the Laws of the Road.
Please give me more information. If my opinion is wrong let me know.
