Not my traffic problem
I spend a lot of time on the Island and while I agree that traffic at the crossings — mostly during rush hour — is atrocious, getting around Alameda itself is pretty easy. It’s not like trying to get around on the mainland. The other fact is that I actually have the option to walk if I set aside the time. Some of my favorite places in town are walkable. Unless something goes wrong, or you’re using a crossing, I don’t think traffic is that bad.
