description

Long standing problem. Northbound on Paseo Padre Parkway just past Olive Ave the group of pine trees have roots that are upsetting the flat roadway surface. This causes cyclists to merge left to avoid damaged road surface. Possible for cyclists unaware of uneven roadway to loose control and fall due to the roughness of the road way.

Vehicle Registration Fee Public Workshop: Fremont

March 31, 2010 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

vehicle registration fee graphic
The Alameda County Congestion Management Agency (ACCMA) is considering placing a transportation measure on the November 2, 2010 ballot to provide a Vehicle Registration Fee of $10 that would be used for local transportation and transit improvements throughout Alameda County. The opportunity for a Countywide transportation agency to place this fee before the voters was authorized last year by the passage of Senate Bill 83, authored by Senator Loni Hancock (Oakland).

The Vehicle Registration Fee could help counties provide additional local funding for their transportation needs, including improvements to local streets and roads that make our roads safer for cyclists and pedestrians. Alameda County has very significant unfunded transportation needs, and this fee would provide funding to meet some of those needs. The Vehicle Registration Fee would be a key part of an overall strategy to develop a balanced, well thought-out program that improves transportation and transit for our residents and has the potential to generate up to $11 million per year.
