I invite the mayor and council members to commute to North Bayshore area every day for a month; do this between 8:00 and 10:00 am and then between 5 and 6:00 pm. Try Rengstorff, Shoreline, 101, and San Antonio.

Then imagine this same gridlock commute with thousands more commuters.

We are already gridlocked and the streets are at a standstill during commuter hours. This is a terrible quality of life issue.
