Yes, Traffic on Sir Francis Drake Avenue may get Worse with these "Improvements"
"Traffic Calming" is the phrase planners use to describe measures that slow traffic down.

As this video clearly shows, such traffic calming measures to slow traffic is the actual goal, not to improve traffic flow.
I wonder how many commuters on Sir Francis Drake Blvd want this "improvement".
