Oakland officials have taken a drastic measure to address rampant copper theft by homeless individuals: replacing traffic lights with stop signs. At the intersection of East 12th Street and 16th Avenue, the city swapped out traffic signals after repeated thefts of copper wiring made the lights nonfunctional. Locals attribute this situation to the nearby homeless encampment, which has plagued the area for years. Residents express frustration over the city’s inability to resolve homelessness, which they see as the root cause of rising crime and infrastructure decay. Business owners, like Tam Lee of Lee’s Auto Body and Engine Repair, lament that this “Band-Aid” solution reflects a broader failure in governance. As the city struggles with a 22% increase in violent crime this year, this latest move underscores a community in distress, questioning the efficacy of local leadership and state policies.
