See what happens when you build sidewalks wider than the Nina, the Pinta, and/or the Santa Maria? The people that own propertah nearby start to think that the wide wide sidewalk is owned by them.
So they park there.
And the SFMTA / DPT won’t do anything about it. Why? Because they’re afraid.
They’ll always say, “Just call us if there’s a problem.” But they don’t mean it. For some reason, the DPT is afraid to ticket cars that park on the sidewalks of Masonic and the Outer Sunset, places like that.
