Two Vehicle Collision on Highway 101

Was just coming home from Von’s and Olive Mill was backed up BIGTIME.
Are GPS apps directing folks through side streets to avoid 101 or Coast Village Road?
If so they are not a help to drivers.

So glad to hear that Roger! Lot’s of road rage out there of late...
Unless one’s loved one is giving birth, please slow down... a few
minutes for an alleged short cut is not worth it. Your loved ones
want to see you come home.

Ok folks so here's the deal...there is an app on most peoples smart phones called Waze. This app will direct drivers out of freeway traffic onto side roads. This app has identified Coast Village as an alternate route. It's the way of the world now as much as it's a drag to us locals.

Yes. WAZE and the like are no friends to locals everywhere...
formally residential streets with kids playing in...
Sonoma, Oakland, Berkeley ... not cool at all!

Frontage road from Carpenteria to Summerland starting at Sta Monica was very backed up on Saturday afternoon. It seems the app is directing people off there as well. Making a left turn onto El Camino Real from Sta Claus Lane is now very difficult and dangerous due to all of the traffic being diverted. The people living at Bailard can't be looking forward to the opening of that frontage road to Casitas Pass as that will be a zoo each rush hour morning and tourist travel day. It's a mess out there.

I used Waze yesterday to get to Carp from SB. It lead me through coast village road and even on Coast village circle to get around the street backup. I get it's annoying for locals and causing problems in certain neighborhoods. However, like someone mentioned, it's not going away and used correctly may ultimately help ease congestion overall. It's a very helpful technology that's slowly becoming a NIMBY issue.

Last month I watched at the 101 where 154 begins up by Los Olivos and saw that 60% of the 101 traffic was diverting onto 154. WAZE and Google Maps etc tell people coming South into SB to "save 10 minutes" by taking that route. The result is of course more frequent accidents as those speeders pass on curves.

Right! 154 is dangerous enough when most of the people who KNOW it are on the road.... EXTREMELY dangerous when many people who DON'T know the road, AND are in a hurry, TRY to maneuver it... For EVERYONE on the road!!!!
