Der Emily,

As Alamo discovered, the ability to control commute traffic is to remove a section of Danville Blvd. On Vasco Road, removing several miles of roadway would significantly control commute traffic.

See how easy traffic planning is if you focus! We have requested a wake-up call for the Board of Supervisors starting with Ms. Piepho, but so far the front desk just rings their rooms endlessly. They must be OUT.
