What’s it going to look like when there are 2200 homes rather than 250?
This is the traffic nearly every morning during school drop-off time.
I wonder if any kids from Old Trail will ever walk to school.
From an offline commenter:
Why do you assume the problem is Old Trail KIDS?? Tell ALL of the WAHS parents to use the buses we tax payers pay for and quit using Old Trail Drive as a short cut to drop their kids off. Take a look at the bus stops in Old Trail and count the number of students going to all three schools by bus.
The students living in Old Trail will walk to all of the schools after the county gets off of it’s arses and puts in the promised walkways up to 250 and and down 250 for access to all schools as promised.
Update #2: The offline commenter raised a very valid point; I called and asked if I could use the comment in the post and we had a good conversation about the post, traffic, bureaucracy and other such matters. The point I wanted to convey is that this is not an Old Trail (which is a great place to live) issue, it’s a Crozet issue. I’d bet that at least 60% of the traffic in that photo aren’t from Old Trail but are from Crozet.
We’re in this – this traffic and lack of infrastructure and lack of common sense culture – together.
(did you notice the mountains in the background of the photo?)
