[Editor's note: The following is an excerpt from the petition "Please Make Ralston Avenue Safer." To view the petition, click on the link below.]
We are asking the Belmont City Council to modernize Ralston Avenue to make it safer for pedestrians, cyclists, children, and the elderly. Please take action to reduce the number of deaths and serious injuries that occur on Ralston and improve the quality of life for all residents.

We believe that Ralston Avenue should be more than just a freeway between 101 and 280. It is the heart of Belmont and thus should reflect the kind of community in which we choose to live and raise our children. Ralston should meet the needs of pedestrians, cyclists, and homeowners, not just drivers.
There's a petition (link below) circulating regarding safety and traffic on Ralston Avenue. It raises some good concerns regarding traffic, bike lanes, and pedestrian crossings. We have all experienced the traffic on Ralston during commute hours, particularly when school is in session. We think this is a complex issue, and we need to make sure our voices are heard.
