Drivers are already painfully aware that San Jose has too many potholes, but a startling new audit has found that a decade of pavement neglect has left city streets deteriorating toward the ranks of the worst roads in the Bay Area.
Nearly 3 in 4 Californians want more money spent on filling potholes and repaving freeways and city streets, but they have little appetite for paying the bill.

Youth for the Environment and Sustainability (YES) Conference Returns to the SF Bay Area
February 23, 2015
On February 7, 2015, middle and high school students from around the SF Bay region came together to discuss transportation issues; learn how their decisions can impact climate change; and share ways of encouraging others to walk, bike, take transit or carpool to school. The Youth for the Environment and Sustainability (YES) Conference was designed to encourage youth advocacy, communication and leadership skills. Participants had opportunities to share their success stories, participate in a bicycle workshop and leadership training sessions, and learn from speakers how to best make the case for sustainable transportation.
This year’s keynote speakers were Serah Almeyda, a student at Windsor High School and an engaged community activist, and Nick Laskowski, a co-founder of San Jose Bike Party, a monthly ride of 2,500 people. Check out the highlights from the gallery in the photo gallery.
