Traffic Calming on Lyman

Would you like to help improve safety in the neighborhood?

A group of neighbors are working with our Oakland city councilmember, Sheng Thao, to calm traffic at the intersection of Lyman & Waterhouse Roads, where drivers too often engage in reckless behavior, including doing doughnuts and driving at excessive speeds. Reckless driving on Lyman has resulted in a flipped car, sideswiped cars, and countless near misses.

What can you do to help?
