Same thorn in my side....and to top it off, I can't believe that (at least
so far) they have done nothing but a bad patch work job with Mission - looks
and feels like a bumpy quilt.... One can only hope that they'll repave
everything from at least Pickering to Sullivan and into the Canyon - it's
one of the worst roads in Fremont (other than Osgood).
As for the cameras - I'd love to see one there, too. Unfortunately, they
don't have cameras that monitor turning lanes (at least that's what I was
told by police when I almost got creamed on Mowry and Fremont Blvd.). Also
- I don't think Fremont is responsible for Mission - it's serviced by
CalTrans? Can you imagine for those two entities to agree on anything?
They do need to adjust the light timing at the Mowry/Mission intersection,
too - it stays green to make a left turn on Mission for only about 15
seconds - backing up traffic all the way to Cherry, and it's not even rush
hour! And it stays red for a long time, while nothing is going up or down
Mission.... Plus the turning lights onto Mowry and into the Frontier Hotel
turn green - even if not a single car sits in either of the turning lanes -
