Letter to San Jose Officials Regarding an Unpaved Sidewalk

TransportiCA Note: The following letter was mailed today to various San Jose city officials.  The letter regards an unpaved portion of King Road, and how its being unpaved and not connected to a major intersection is troubling.  The sidewalk's present state is, in TransportiCA's opinion, "dangerous by design," and encourages pedestrians traversing the route to run across King Road to reach the McKee Road intersection.  Not only is this incredibly dangerous, as King is a major thoroughfare and identified as one of 3% of San Jose streets associated with 50% of traffic fatalities, but it also deters people from walking - thereby, using the first, and most sustainable, form of transport.
