    Yet another head-on fatality on SR 12 between Lodi and Rio Vista. Did you know that there have been NO head-on collisions on SR12 between Rio Vista to Suisun City since the channelizer strips were installed a few years ago? Before they were installed, it was a regular "Blood Alley". In the Fall of 2013, I wrote letters to Caltrans officials asking that these inexpensive, proven life-savers be installed on SR12 between Rio Vista and Lodi. I've received 2 written responses from CalTrans directors (all copied to various top brass including Governor Brown) stating that Caltrans will "investigate" the situation....period. Note that the
    long-awaited redo of SR12 on Bouldin Island has not started yet and will not be completed for years. Even after that project is completed, long stretches of SR12 east of Rio Vista to Lodi will have no barrier or even channelizers. If they have proven so effective in the Rio Vista to Suisun leg of SR12.....why can't they be installed on the Rio Vista-Lodi leg? It just defies logic and these deaths go on and on....and on.
