No thanks to the greed, money groveling and the disconcern by the mayors, councilmembers, etc. of the cities of Millbrae, Burlingame and San Mateo.
Because of the addition of the express “pay as you use” commuter lanes, there is not any “escape lane” on either side of southbound Highway 101, between Millbrae and the Poplar Avenue exit. Now if someone breaks down, has an accident or an emergency vehicle needs to pass, there is no place to pull over. That endangers everyone because of the selfish and greedy wants of our civic leaders as well as Caltrans.
Isn’t it enough that our gas taxes have already paid for the roads and have been misused, now they want to make us pay more to use an express lane. We already had free commuter lanes that were an issue for vehicles that had to exit the road and cut through bumper-to-bumper traffic, after traveling at 50-65 mph.
What do you suppose it will be like with the express pay lanes. This is a “no win” situation for the local taxpayers. However, it will accommodate the “tech workers” from out of town.
