Georgy: Unless you have learned how to bend time, you did do something. You got one year older. And medical insurance rates go up because of that. That may be the cause of some of the increase. Did your group get smaller? More risk to spread around on fewer customers. Rates go up. Etc., etc....

Since most (all?) HOV lanes are on the inside or left lanes, how are the continued use of left hand exits compatible with HOV lanes? Are non-HOV driver expected to cross though the HOV lanes to use the exit? If the HOV lanes are not built, does that take away a segment of the funding? No funding, no building? Maybe that is CS Montecito's goal.

SBreader: The settlement creates a foundation in New York because that is where Ms. Clark died, and resided. The New York Courts and the New York Attorney General are the authorities in charge, by law, of settling the dispute between claimants. So, the Foundation will be governed by the state of New York, since no foundation was set up and incorporated in California by Ms. Clark prior to her death.
So, a Museum in California could be run by a foundation based out of New York. Odd, but another reason to see a good lawyer for estate planning. (No, I am not a lawyer, nor do I play one on TV.)

Geeber: Actually I believe the Caltrans plan calls for moving the main traffic lanes north, where the exit and on ramp is at Sheffield. New on and off ramps would be placed on the right side of 101. Minimal impact on Summerland.

Georgy, "If the Caltrans plan made any sense their (sic) wouldn't be opposition." Nonsense. There will always be opposition. I've worked on transportation and construction projects in a community capacity for years, there is always opposition. The reasons may vary, but there is always opposition. The difference in Montecito is the opposition has money, and that means lawsuits.
I don't have traffic studies in front on me, but where did you 90% figure come from? 101 is the North-South coastal highway connecting the state of California, I would wager most of the traffic is passing through, not getting "off to the left or into the hills."

Georgy, Let me rephrase the question. Do you have any peer reviewed studies that are of this decade? The Berkley report is from 2005.
I will leave it to other to comment on the veracity of the Montecito Journal.

Georgy, please cite your source on HOV lanes. And a peer reviewed source, not the Reason Foundation. HOV lanes work just fine were I live, and have reduced traffic delays considerable.
The left hand off ramps at Hot Springs work because traffic usually is so backed up and slow. With additional lanes and speed the risk of accidents will increase. And the left hand, up hill on ramp at Sheffield? Has to go.

Bimbo: There is no quiet zone. One has been PROPOSED. They do blow their horns.
A Quiet Zone, if enacted, would require major upgrades to all existing crossings, and would cost lots of money. Where that money is coming from is a mystery.

Pulice seems like a nice guy, but there is absolutely no way this can be built in two years. Expanding existing freeways is very complicated, as you must keep the freeway open during construction; can't build during morning of evening rush hour, moving utilities is expensive, bridges must be rebuilt, water flow must be managed to protect the ocean, etc.
Pulice knows this, so I can't figure out how he came up with two years. Would love to see his construction schedule.
