6:55 AM: No major incidents so far. One note for on-peninsula driving – Mayor McGinn has announced that the grace (warnings only) period is extended for the city’s four speed cameras in school zones, including the one on Fauntleroy Way near Gatewood Elementary, till December 10th. His news release from yesterday (read it here) says the cameras already have led to almost 6,000 warnings.

  1. Hah, someone in our household got one of those warnings the other day! Which explains why the traffic was going soooo slowly around Gatewood School…guess our neighborhood got a lot of those warnings!

  2. re: 21X — during the evening rush hour, the 4:50pm bus that arrives at 3rd and Seneca and 2nd and Columbia is pretty reasonable to the extent that at worst you will have a few people standing upon departure from downtown, however the 5:05pm bus from my most recent experience–about a month ago–is packed to the gills, as in people standing in the back door stairwell packed. I believe they took one 21X out of commission with the addition of RR, but it seems to be running ok otherwise if you don’t mind the 5:05pm crowds.

  3. Why the discrepancy in implementing the same photo enforced cameras at ‘Our Lady of Guadeloupe’ school zone?

  4. By the way, why do the c line drivers crank the heat so high? It is unbearable some mornings.
