(Natural News) The City of San Diego has done something that is so incredibly stupid and shortsighted — in the name of ‘combating climate change’ — that even some liberal residents are confused and angry about it.

Specifically, the city, without consultation or announcement, redesigned a “two-lane” road along a stretch of Gold Coast Drive in the Mira Mesa suburb that accommodates two lanes of bike traffic but only one center lane for vehicles. But it isn’t a one-way road; it’s still a two-way traffic road with a single lane. Vehicles are expected to dodge each other as they drive toward head-on collisions.

“This is not safe for anybody. I don’t know why any city would do something like this,” said local resident Tommy Hough, who is running for city council.

“Gold Coast is essentially two streets – the length from Black Mountain Rd. to Camino Ruiz (east) is the worst road in the city. Everyone here knows it. Not good for bicycles or cars. The shorter length from Camino Ruiz to Parkdale (west) is newer and regularly resurfaced,” he noted further in a tweet.

“Definitely agree on how bad Gold Coast is – I rode here last week after a neighbor sent me a note about what was being done. I’m curious tho, considering you’re calling on the city to restripe the street: what would you do differently?” one resident asked in response to Hough’s post.


“We’re asking the city to simply restore the previous alignment on this heavily-used arterial. The stenciled bicycle person is imperfect, but (most) folks know how to negotiate it. Let’s collaborate on truly safe lanes or corridors, and better utilize avail. street opportunities,” Hough replied.

KUSI reported further:

Residents told KUSI’s Dan Plante that it’s not only laughable, but they think the new design is much more dangerous than it was before. To make matters worse, the City of San Diego didn’t consult or notify anybody in the community before they did it.

As KUSI’s Dan Plante reports, this is just the latest example of the City’s, “Climate Action Goals Gone Wild.”

Chris Cate, the only Republican on the San Diego City Council, represents the district where the block-long goofy ‘climate’ design was added recently, and told local media that no one from the city even bothered to contact him to tell him what was being planned and implemented.

“I’m not sure where this traffic pattern came from. I’m not sure why it’s only running for one block. And I don’t know if we’re being treated as guinea pigs here in Mera Mesa for something special,” Hough (pronounced ‘How’) said in an interview with KUSI. “But the reason I say ‘neighborhoods first,’ the reason I am running for San Diego City Council District 6, is because of the hubris downtown that applies [to] revamped traffic patterns like this without letting any of the residents know, even Chris Cates’ office didn’t know about this.”

Without a doubt, this has to be one of the dumbest ideas yet inspired by ‘climate change’ libtard lunacy. But if the lanes aren’t changed back, chances are good either a motorist or bicyclist is going to be injured or killed.
