You have to be brain dead to not know that Kolln at Valley leads into a dense, residential-street neighborhood with no ultimate destination beyond. Stoneridge, on the other hand, has been paid for and built to be a sound-walled, two lane in-each-direction thoroughfare designed to carry through traffic.
Come on, give the rest of us a break, we're not THAT stupid!

First, just because someone may not agree with you, name calling is not necessary. Kamp, like Jensen Track, is dense, residential-street neighborhood. I understand the point being made. Wouldn't the wall coming down lead to Alisal Elementary School field as a destination? Best option may be that wall at Kamp since the two situations are very similar.

Why would someone make all those turns through side streets, when they could just stay on Stoneridge (which has a higher speed limit, and synchronized traffic lights) until Santa Rita, and then turn left?
There's an elementary school on Kolln just south of Valley. In all likelihood, that's why the wall was built in the first place -- to discourage people from driving into that neighborhood, where so many children walk to and from school, unless they are headed somewhere in the neighborhood.
If there are traffic problems at Kamp and Stoneridge, perhaps there are intermediate steps that could be taken, short of building a wall? For instance, it might restrict traffic sufficiently if Kamp was one-way (going north) for the block that runs alongside Neilsen park.
There is another elementary school on Dennis, which runs parallel to Stoneridge just to its south, and to the east of Kamp. Any traffic control measures taken should not have the effect of increasing through traffic near either school.
