Yet Another Car Accident on Bloody Masonic Avenue in San Francisco

So far this year, the big news regarding the traffic situation on Masonic Avenue is a reduction in the speed limit to a maximum of 25 MPH

Mission Accomplished?

One of this morning’s accidents on Masonic:

It seems there’s still room for improvement on this street.

Now back in the day, there were plans for a Panhandle Freeway(!), so it’s not like some traffic czar organized the streets in this area in a coherent fashion. We have what, we have by “accident,” mas o menos.

Is it too late for wholesale changes to the way Masonic is laid out?

    Masonic Ave. is a major north/south street, so why would you expect to never have any accidents on that street? By the way, one of the options being considered by the folks working on the EIR for the Bicycle Plan involves encouraging even faster traffic on Masonic by eliminating street parking between Geary and Fell during commute hours.

    I do not “expect to never have any accidents on that street.”

    Eliminating street parking sounds like a good idea.
