    I support the city of Fresno Adopting Vehicle Miles Traveled, however I find it odd that the county's VMT threshold is used as a reference and that the CEQA's proposed mitigation strategies for a project includes, "Addition of an auxiliary lane of less than 1 mi in length designed to improve roadway safety."

    Doesn't adding an additional travel lane induce driving demand?
