It is with frustration that I read the article titled “Traffic Relief Pilot to Stay in Foster City” in the May 28 issue of the Daily Journal. I was somewhat skeptical of the program from the beginning but was open to what the traffic data showed. What data? There are 229 less cars entering Foster City during peak hours at a cost to the city of $52,000. That’s $227 per car. What we need to know is what percentage decrease in traffic was effected. This is either very poor reporting or very poor press relations on the part of the city. I hope, in either case, it was not deliberate. Lacking sufficient data, it still seems to me that this program punishes the local residents as much as it does to the commuters at a very high cost. Maybe I will change my mind when the data is fully released.
