This is a difficult crossing since vehicle speed is not yet in the 25-mpg zone near Napa High-School. The blinking yellow light does little to slow traffic. I used to cross here regularly on bicycle, but have shifted for my safety to the lighted-signal intersections at California and Jefferson.

I hear you, Genji. Crossing Lincoln without a signal light is just too scary for me. Kellie suggested on Facebook adding a light-up crosswalk like the one now on Permanente Way. Do you think that would help?

It's pedestrian beware on that street. I sit there and wait til there are no cars nearby before I even try to cross unless someone stops for me, then I even wait out in the road to make sure the other cars stop in the next lanes.
