This is How Masonic Avenue Jaywalkers Die – Between Geary and Bush – Back and Forth to Trader Joe’s #100

Let’s start of with how people get across a different part of Masonic Avenue a bit lower down Mervyn’s Heights – note that that area is at the crest of a hill.

Compare that part of Masonic with the first block of Masonic just north of Geary. See that? All of those people are NOT on crest, they’re on a slope so they can’t see what’s coming.

As here – MUNI bus barn to the right, TJ’s to the left:

The ped was distracted here by the traffic that just popped up heading south

And now she’s picking up the pace:

    How should the city protect jaywalkers who insist on crossing Masonic in the middle of the block? There’s a crosswalk a half block away.

    THey could put in a light and a crosswalk near the TJ’s ped exit, that would be one way, assuming that everything else is set in stone…

    Clearly the solution to this problem is more bike lanes. /sarcasm
