This letter is in response to the June 10 letter named Three Blind Mice.
Personally, I think a Roundabout at Main Street and Cedar Ravine is one of the silliest things I have heard about. I learned to drive here in Placerville in the 60s and have been through this intersection hundreds of times. Vehicles stop, wait their turn and go on. Since the traffic is at a stop crossing the street is also safe for the pedestrians and bike riders. This would not be the case if a roundabout were at this intersection. To my knowledge, there has not been an accident at this location either.
I understand that the Clay Street bridge might need to be widened. But the folks who live there can also go out the other end of Clay Street onto Mosquito Road and it is only a block or two for quick access to Broadway or west and east Highway 50.
So, why do our City Council members want to fix something that is not broken? Or are there other reasons that are not known to the general public?
