Median to Nowhere: What the SFMTA Thinks is a Good Idea in Laurel Heights I Think is a Bad Idea

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

On this stretch, I drive in the middle of the road, both traveling east and west, for pedestrian safety:

If the median here were actually installed by the SFMTA / DPW / whomever (instead of just being painted on), I’d be forced to drive very close to the place where bad peds tend to dart out.

I care about ped safety. The SFMTA cares about, what, “sustainable streets” theology?

Mmmm…

Finally, the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition Acknowledges that Pedestrians Don’t “ALWAYS” Have the Right of Way

Wednesday, September 24th, 2014

Well, this is refreshing, this new bit from the SFBC.

You see, they used to go around telling peds that peds “always” have the right of way.*

But, the always is now gone from their new materials.

Do you think the SFBC learned something from this tiny WordPress blog?

I do.

To review, telling peds they always have the right of way is always the wrong thing to do.

*That was all the way back in 2012, except now this old SFBC posting is down the memory hole, lost forever. Also lost forever are the SFBC’s tax forms, which used to be posted but now are hidden away, oh well.
