Rob - It's the onramp at Ortega Hill that gets me. The offramps, while still counter to basic traffic flow, are the lesser evil. I heard that the additional 101 lanes planned through Montecito will not be constructed if the left lane ramps remain. Is that true? I know it starts to get complicated when you dig into things . . .

Rob - I do the commute daily and have for 8 years. Obviously there is a huge (little) space problem at Ortega Hill with the cliff, freeway, railroad and Pacific Ocean and the solution will be contentious, but to say that the left ramps are "in fact, considerably safer" is questionable. What stats show these are safer?

What a cluster! The left side on ramps and off ramps totally disrupt traffic flow - no statistics can change that observation. "Slower traffic keep right", a basic traffic law, is in direct conflict with the left ramps.
The privileged Montecietians want to hold their little 101 bottleneck hostage to their self centered interests. Big Montecito buck$$ means the rest of us suffer on 101.
Let's hope the Gov sees the light!!

Never a memorial, never a cemetery honoring our fallen soldiers, Arlington West was always a war protest that used men and women who died in these conflicts as fodder to promote their political beliefs.
I'm glad we are getting our beach back.
Good riddance Arlington West!
May our fallen soldiers rest in peace.

First of all, I hope Frank is OK
Horses behave that way because they are horses. If a flower pot has been moved, or someone opens up an umbrella, that's fair game for a good spooking. Good riders get bucked all the time also.
Thank God for Henry Ford!!

Here is another example of the SB city council trying to emulate other "green" cities with an ordinance that will have little or no impact on the poor Leatherback turtle. None of my plastic bags make it into the ocean - I recycle or dispose of properly.Did you know that the city trash pick up takes plastic bags for recycling? That should do the trick right there!The first step towards a solution is to get the City Council to work on meaningful projects, not feel good legislation . .
