What could be worse than the two-lane bottleneck on the 101 from Santa Barbara to Carpinteria? Spending hundreds of millions of dollars to widen it to three lanes and then making the new third lane usable to cars with passengers only!?!? Most of the drivers who use the 101, Monday through Friday are drivers going to work who work different hours than their family and friends. So the bottleneck and bumper-to-bumper traffic will continue every rush hour as everyone commuting will sit idling in their car and watch every few minutes or so as one car will zoom by them on the one open lane most drivers can’t use? You’re kidding … right!?
