To the Editor:
Frank Gebauer is to be applauded for drawing attention to the chronic traffic congestion on College Avenue. The intersection with Ashby Avenue has to be the worst in Berkeley. The solutions he proposes, however do not seem feasible. The residents on side streets are unlikely to allow their tranquility to be disrupted by through traffic. Nor would turn lanes seem possible on such a narrow street. A simpler solution would be for the traffic signals to allow northbound and southbound traffic to move alternately rather than simultaneously, allowing drivers to make turns without holding up cars behind. The same for east and west traffic which piles up for many blocks at rush hour.
