Dear Doctor Fisher:
Thank you very much for your letter of June 28th.

The Atlanta Traffic and Safety Council determined that
during special events at the stadium, the curb ne should be
reserved for buses and taxis because of the large number of
people that these vehicles transport. The effectiveness of the
system depends on the enforcement of the regulations, and
the police department has the responsibility. The indications
are that the over-all results is very good, for the simple
reason that a larger number of people move into and out of
the Atlanta stadium area as quick, or quicker, than any
other stadium in the nation.

I am in sympathy with your problem, but I am sure
that you realize that for a system to work successfully, private
vehicles cannot be permitted to use the curb lane.

I have forwarded your letter on to Mr, Ed, Hughes,
the Director of the Atlanta Traffic and Safety Council, with
a@ requeet that they take another look at this operation and
see if they have any further suggestions.

Sincerely yours,

€.e. :
