The road in and out of down town are designed terrible. You have a big circle at an intersection that make new drivers to the area confused. It also blinds the drivers from seeing people and cars cause there is a planter in the middle of the road. The cal train side is like a race into Castrol. Light turns green and you need to beat the other drivers or get stuck at another light cycle. Heavens forbid a train comes by, it's another 5 min cause the north trains activate it twice! Crosswalks in the middle of the road?, nice idea but the parked cars and trees make people appear as if they jumped out from between the cars. Let not excuse the people either, yapping on phones or emailing as they walk into the street.
