According to a report by the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition, residents on Buena Vista Drive at Moody Road and Page Mill Road are asking for a stop sign — or some other traffic mediation — so they can make safe left turns onto their street off Page Mill Road.
I think that’s a bad idea and probably a stop sign here doesn’t qualify based on road design standards. There can’t be more than eight or so houses on Buena Vista, but they’re big houses and their occupants have gotten the attention of local officials.
My suggestion is to add a large mirror so that motorists, and cyclists for that matter, can see what’s coming around the corner when turning left onto Moody Road.
The signs erected here in the past few weeks (“keep right”) serve no useful purpose, but they do cause confusion. The Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors will take up the issue on September 27.
