Re "Drivers ask: What's the best way to go?" (April 21, Page A1): The Bee's coverage of the Fix50 project and all the grief it will bring commuters ignores the people who actually live in downtown Sacramento.
For 17 years, I've watched commuters race at near freeway speeds through my Southside Park neighborhood to get onto a freeway to take them to their little stucco boxes in Elk Grove, Natomas and West Sacramento. Fix50 is sure to bring a new throng of commuters with absolutely no regard for the people and pets that live in the downtown area.
May I suggest the city use some of the state money it received for this project to put a few police officers with radar guns and perhaps a spike strip or two on the residential streets of downtown Sacramento?
