    Q: I am angry because you refer to next Thursday in your column and here in the East Bay, we don’t get your column on Thursday or Tuesday or Sunday. When I lived in San Jose, I used to get it every single day that you publish it. Please, can you do something about it? I...

    Q: This experience made me laugh out loud. I came up to a four-way stop in Pleasanton at the intersection of Valley Ave and Via De Las Milagros. It is where Lucky’s just started their new food delivery robot program. We’re seeing these little guys all over now. It’s “a whole new world.” I was...
    Q: What happened to the Mr. Roadshow who is in favor of road diets and other measures to make roads safer for non-automobile traffic?

    Q: I found your article from Aug. 21, 2007, titled “Roadshow: There really is a free right turn on red.” Kara Hardman, Los Gatos A: Back in 2007! I was just a young pup in those days. What prompted you to dive into the Roadshow archives? Q: I was researching the internet because my...
    Q: Your concerns about the dangers of increased speeding are pretty hollow in light of your constant disparagement of drivers who drive the speed limit, who you label as road boulders, and your support of those who feel they should drive as fast as they like. John Seyfarth, Los Altos Like Mr. Roadshow’s Facebook page...
    Q: Mr. Roadshow, since you vowed to stop calling mature women “young lady,” could you also dispose of your epithet “Road Boulder”? Betty Menkin, San Jose  Like Mr. Roadshow’s Facebook page for more questions and answers about Bay Area roads, freeways and commuting. A: What?

    Q: If you’ve already gotten 10 million screechy communications about this, please accept my sincere apologies for piling on. Generally speaking, we older women don’t care a bit for the term “young lady” as you referred to a woman over the age of 70. No matter how well-intentioned, it comes across as patronizing, as if...

    Q: I hope there is a massive chorus of people asking for a state and a federal bill to ban the sale of fossil-fueled vehicles much earlier than 2035.

    Q: Bulbouts are terrible! They force bike riders close to vehicles, especially to their side mirrors. And they force drivers making a right turn to swing closer to the center of the road they’re turning on to. I’ve had some near misses with vehicles coming from the opposite direction. Susan O’Sullivan, Richmond Like Mr. Roadshow’s...
