Help: Identify and Report Safety Issues

Help make our neighborhood safer

We need your help in documenting traffic safety issues in our neighborhood, with a specific focus on Santa Cruz Ave and Alameda de las Pulgas. This area from just south of Sand Hill and north to Avy Ave has many safety issues. Our goal is to convince San Mateo County Dept. of Public Works (DPW) to take action and fix major problems.

Unfortunately, DPW is under the opinion that only 3 accidents have occurred in the past 6 years: We had over 3 times as many accidents just since October!  For you mathematicians, thats over a 5,200% increase!!

We have set up a special email for neighbors to report accidents and unsafe conditions:

Just let us know about the accident or safety issue.  If you have photos, please send with your email.  If you have suggestions or questions, please use the same email address.

We will use the photos to show DPW and the County Board of Supervisors that we want action to address the many safety issues here and we want action now, before more property damage, injuries, or deaths.   We already have had 2 pedestrian deaths in recent years and recently a pedestrian was hit and taken to hospital.
