I’ll tell you, back in the day the SFMTA and its predecessors wanted people to use 7th Avenue, but look at this – stop-and-go traffic the likes of which I’ve never seen afore in the Inner Sunset:
(Man, 9th Avenue flows better than this, and that’s saying something.)
I’ll tell you, 6th Avenue is a triple beam lyrical dream compared to 7th these days. 6th Avenue has four-way stop signs from Lincoln all the way up to Lawton, so why wouldn’t people just use 6th if this is the way 7th is going to be?
Are the residents of 7th Avenue a protected class, and these rarely-used suicide lanes are designed to make up for past discrimination? Did they sue and get a consent decree? Boy, it sure looks that way.
Our SFMTA Gods Must Be Crazy…
