Bad pedestrian behavior on this block has led to the death of one TJ’s shopper this year so far.

The question is why do peds act this way at this particular location.

The other question is what can be done about this.

    Dude wasn’t alone in his Frogger-like journey. They sure fit the Bro category.

    And that woman, I don’t know about her. If you saw what she had, you’d see was heavily accessorized. My purpose for the post is to show the scene for her or her relatives if there’s a lawsuit. I don’t know how else to describe her…

    Meligrosa must be a bit of a wimp, since there’s no danger in riding the #43 in that area. But the #43—and all the other traffic on Masonic—will be slowed down once the city implements the Bicycle Coalition’s “improvements” on Masonic next year, just in time for the opening of Target at Geary and Masonic.

    Trader Joes customers jaywalking can’t be blamed on cars, since it’s pure folly to not walk half a block to cross the street there.
