Just look at 2012 – ped crosses in the middle of the block on Hayes, gets hit by a #21, ped crosses in the middle of the block on Lombard, gets hit by a car, “ped” skateboards through a red light and slams into a truck, ped crosses int the middle of the block on Masonic and gets hit by a pickup, etc. etc. etc. The end of 2012 had a string of deaths in which the peds were mostly blameless but the start of 2012 had a string going the other way.
Now take the ongoing situation in front of Trader Joe’s #100 on Masonic. It’s entirely 100% the fault of the current Brown / Newsom / Lee “strong Mayor” administration. But what can we do about it? I’m thinking a traffic light for peds – that would prolly save a life or two in the coming years. Or allowing for a proper parking situation for TJ’s by letting it build a garage? Or by banning parking on the east side of Masonic on this long block?
Just a few ideas.
Still they come, back and forth, hundreds of jaywalking shoppers, each and every day
