More medians needed now

To the powers that be, I have a question: When are you going to put medians on Lincoln Way at Foresthill? We now have a new gas station and the traffic at that corner is horrendous. I don’t know how many times I have almost been hit by drivers pulling into the turn lane to turn into the gas station. People also block the left turn lane onto Ferguson so they can pull into the Chevron station across on-coming traffic. Also, all of the stoplights should have a “No right turn on red” in big enough letters so that people can see them I turn left onto the over crossing from Bowman Road to shop at Raley’s and persons coming off the freeway do not stop for the red light as they come off the Foresthill Exit. These are places just waiting for accidents. Do away with those ugly yellow things that are acting as a median and put real medians in on all four corners. Make it easier for all traffic concerned, especially those of us that live here and have to put up with these tourists every weekend. Dealing with this situation day in and day out I am beginning to understand what people call “road rage.” It is really hard to keep one’s wits when you have others out there that don’t care if they are blocking the roads, running red lights, turning across traffic causing others to slam on their brakes or in my mind just being in too much of a hurry. Medians, people, we need medians! JENNYFER MURPHY, Auburn
