Once again, you have ignored the only real remedy for Danville Blvd in our business district. The current four lane road should be removed and individual access lanes should be placed within the Alamo business district. Alamo is a destination and not commute corridor.

Oh PUNish me, neighbors,
I cross Danville Blvd in Alamo waving a white flag and carrying bandages to stop the bleeding.

Sometimes ideas most humorous have such a realistic purpose. Take "Alamo at the Crossroads Corp" proposed by Dandy Smith in today's e-chains. Like school crossing guards of old with big stop signs on long poles, Dandy sees Alamo Iron Horse neighbors forming a corp to be such crossing guards in our Alamo Business District.
Volunteers would contribute an hour per week to be part of the corp that allows pedestrians to cross during the invasion of unwanted commuters mornings and evening. We can leave out the corp's snipers that pick off commuters that don't stop and the medics that care for the casualties, but we can focus on the actual idea.
I suggest, like school districts, we provide senior citizens jobs as crossing guards and pay them from funding raised in the community. Does anyone else consider this a very good idea?
