I vote no to an In-N-Out at the old Elephant Bar location on Hamilton. Although I would love an In-N-Out close to me, this proposed location is wrong because of all the extra traffic it would create at an already congested location. Please find another location in Campbell for the In-N-Out. Thank you.

In-N-Out at Hamilton and 17 is a very bad idea! The intersection is already a nightmare - let's not make it worse with a fast food restaurant!

I have lived in this neighborhood (Harrison Avenue) for 18 years and always have been open to development but it has just gotten to be too much. The traffic issues are astounding. The In and Out would just simply clog this area even more. I am totally open to a sit-down type restaurant (like Elephant Bar that was there before) because people come, sit and eat and it is more reasonable with traffic. The nature of In and Out is just that "In and Out" and the fast food traffic patterns would simply create a terrible burden to an already ridiculously heavy Hamilton Avenue load but also to the neighbors who already deal with a deluge of traffic. Bring something more reasonable to that site. I am totally open to that. Just not this type of restaurant. It is not a good fit.

I am not a Campbell resident, I live just beyond in West San Jose, but I am a frequent user of the Hamilton off-ramp. Ninety percent of the time a driver heading West on Hamilton dangerously cuts me off while trying to get to Kohls or Bed, Bath and Beyond as I am travelling in the right lane. If an In n Out was located on the same street, I believe 1) the traffic exiting from 17 would back up significantly and 2) we would see a significant number of traffic accidents due to drivers dodging into the right lane to access In n Out. Anyone who drives that off-ramp can easily foresee that problem. I am all for In n Out in Campbell or West San Jose...but someplace like Westgate (especially the Walmart side which has less traffic) would be ideal. Plus it would route more business into the area as more people would have easier access to Westgate and El Paseo. Not a great deal for Campbell taxes (I believe both malls are in San Jose) but it would be a much safer option for drivers in the area as well as residents and public safety officers who would be impacted by the increased traffic and accidents.

I like In&Out's burgers occasionally, & it would nice to have one close to or in Campbell, however I do NOT think the proposed site is a good one. Any In&Out will generate lots of extra traffic on & off the nearest freeway exits, and throughout the city, since fans will drive distances to get to one, so the location should be considered very carefully. That intersection & that general part of the city is already quite heavily trafficked, and I think having an In&Out there might make the area a real traffic headache. I don't like having parts of the city become areas that I just want to AVOID because they are so full of traffic & its associated unpredictable mishaps and snarls. Among other factors, people headed for an In&Out there and coming off northbound 17 will have to quickly move from the far left lanes into the far right lane in order to access it. This will likely contribute to more accidents.
