Which Would Help the Residents of San Francisco’s 6th Street More? A “Road Diet” or a Drug Diet?

I guess the Epoch News does real news now? News to me. Anyway:

“Another thing  Elizabeth Stampe would like to see is “road diets.’ ”They take a road that’s kind of fat, like Sixth Street, which has a lot of lanes, and they reduce the number of travel lanes,’ Stampe said.”

    Re: video: how come nobody just runs by and snatches this dude’s stash a la iPhone snatcheries? I think Ms. Stampe meant “roadie diet,” i.e., since the Bill Graham Auditorium is nearby, these purchases are being made by roadies on behalf of the bands.
    Actually road diets do slow down traffic, but in this case the dealers will be forced from the curbs to the sidewalks. But slower traffic would also mean drive-by purchases with a FastTrak system in the works, so no money has to change hands and no hands have to make change and changed hands can make money the way that nearby Yammer and Twitter are doing at City/Citizen/Citoyen expense.
