Stop the "traffic calming" implementation on Ross Road in Palo Alto

Many residents believe that the changes being made at busy intersections along Ross Road are unsafe and unhelpful. In pursuit of traffic calming, the changes have created dangerous interactions between cars and bikes. These changes also impede the safe travel of emergency vehicles, as recognized by the fire department in the first thread listed below. 

This is not one resident complaining that they lost a parking space. This is dozens of neighbors trying to raise the alarm before an elementary school bike commuter is crushed by a minivan; before an ambulance is stranded on a concrete island; before another confrontation between two cars given no buffer passing each other in arbitrary constrictions.

STOP THE IMPLEMENTATION of traffic calming along Ross Road in Palo Alto, and remove the roundabout at East Meadow and Ross Road. It is NOT safe, and is an accident causing design waiting for that accident to happen.
