What a poorly written article- or perhaps it's done on purpose. What are the DETAILS of the strike issues? They are BART's request workers pay $92/mo for family health care and contribute something to their pension. Most private sector workers don't even have a pension. Strikers want a 23% pay raise over 3 years. The average salary is $71m, $11m overtime, and >$50m in benefits. If the public knows this, they'll want striking BART workers to go the way of striking air traffic contollers. Anyone can be replaced.

The Sycamore Valley Road/ Camino Ramon intersection is extremely busy, and those crossing iron horse trail are very vulnerable. The area really needs a pedestrian overpass to increase safety for walkers and bikers. Most places with this degree of congestion use such, and it's strange that accommodations don't already exist. An overpass would greatly benefit cars and nondrivers alike.

Laura...you have your brains in the sky. I am assuming you know how to read. What on earth does your comment have to do with the subject matter at hand. You may have a great idea, but know when to play your cards.
