While I personally like the In-N-Out Burger chain, I think the proposed location would be a traffic nightmare. The exit from 17 South to Hamilton Ave is already a frustrating traffic setting. Many drivers do not realize that there is a full usable lane they can enter to turn right onto Hamilton Ave, and so they back up the exit by waiting for an "opening" in the middle lane's traffic. With a destination fast-food location, many people unfamiliar with the area will make the same mistake, creating major backups at the exit.
We already have a McDonald's, Burger King, Taco Bell, Jack in the Box and Dairy Queen just a few blocks away on Hamilton Ave and Winchester Blvd. We don't need another fast food chain nearby, especially in an already congested area.
I think it will draw a lot of non-residents to come just for In-N-Out, then head back onto Highway 17 immediately after. I don't think they'll be sticking around to shop at other Campbell locations or have a significant impact on drawing customers to nearby Campbell stores.
The only good would come from their yummy food, but I really don't think it would be worth the cost in Campbell residents' quality of life that would be diminished by the increased traffic congestion at that intersection.
Thank you for considering my comments.
