There have been all types of brand new bike lanes, new bus lanes, and medians in the middle of old beat up Oakland roads. Most of our major roads are so far beyond demolished and riddled with potholes, that even the safest drivers look like they are trying to start a sideshow while dodging the craters in the street that tear up your car. Yet our city still insist, instead of fixing them we need to add to them. Sounds crazy right?! 

Everyone talks about how simple minded and unwise it is to be adding to something that is still broken, yet no one seems to publicly voice their opinion. And our city council members of Oakland CA seem to think it’s the best idea to “build a brand new house on a quicksand and hay foundation”. This “plan” will eventually fail and in turn create more damage than we initially started with, and cost us tax payers and citizens of our community a lot more money than the already 100 million dollar budget that we won’t see any fruition of until after 3 years if we see any real changes at all.

Not only do they continue to blantantly have disregard for the streets that our community travels on most frequently by not fixing the main streets. They continue to replace and repave newer streets in newer neighborhoods where roads are less traveled. Our main streets like international, Bancroft, MacArthur/Foothill, which goes from one end of Oakland to the other and are most traveled, as well as 98th (the Main Street that takes you directly to OAK intl. airport) 73rd, and so many others, yet and still there is always someone with a broken axle, cracked rim, and jacked up wheel alignment that residents and visitors report to the city that stay unresolved, all while these Oakland transplants ride in these brand new pretty green bike lanes that they only use Monday though Friday if that.

It needs to stop! Our city council is misusing funds to appease the newcomers to want to stay and to make us natives fed up enough to try and push us out. So much so that we now have our local “Pot Hole Vigilantes” who are our fellow community members, taking it upon themselves for free, using their own dollars and the funding help of other locals to fix something our city should be doing. We won’t let this happen without some type reprimand, and with this petition we will force our city to do what’s right by everyone and fix the major problems at hand which is repairing our terribly jacked up streets. Instead of masking the problems of our city with a cute green bike lane band aid and fancy medians that cause nothing but more unnecessary traffic to our overly congested city.
