On Monday, Bike Walk Alameda president Lucy Gigli sent a letter to the commission asking them to revise a proposed goal to put the brakes on increased rush hour traffic to include language clearly identifying permanent transit options for the Island’s car-clogged West End. With traffic fatalities on the rise nationwide, the letter also asked the commission to consider creating a new goal to reduce traffic fatalities in Alameda to zero.
