How many cars do you count?
Oh boy, the SFPD is going to bring it to 5th and Market come Monday.
Officers from Southern Station:
“…will initiate enforcement operations during the week of August 8, 2011. Enforcement will be conducted at the intersection of 5th Street and Market Street and will involve officers in cars, on motorcycles and on foot. The Police Department and SoCPAB plan to expand this traffic safety campaign to other parts of the Southern District in future weeks.”
They’re going to be all over the place!
Sorry, “Red Bull Street Team Girls” of Market Street, the Boys in Blue from Southern Station won’t have as much time for you starting next week:

San Francisco Police Partner with Community for Pedestrian Safety
Posted Date: 8/5/2011 12:00 PM
San Francisco Police Officers will partner with members of the Southern Station Community Police Advisory Board (SoCPAB) to improve pedestrian safety in the Southern Police District.
On Saturday, August 6, 2011 from 9:00 am to 12 noon, members of the SoCPAB will be at the intersection of 5th Street and Market Street to share their “be-city-smart” message and increase pedestrian awareness at this location. Members of SoCPAB will hand out fliers in an effort to educate the public on traffic safety.
Captain Charlie Orkes, Commanding Officer of Southern Station stated, “In a city named most walkable in the country (www.walkscore.com), it is unacceptable that our Southern District has the highest incidents of traffic related injuries and fatalities.”
SoCPAB Co-Chair and Community Leader echoed that, “If our joint effort between SFPD and residents saves just one life of those walking, riding or driving, it will be a success.”
Following Saturday’s educational campaign, the Police Department will initiate enforcement operations during the week of August 8, 2011. Enforcement will be conducted at the intersection of 5th Street and Market Street and will involve officers in cars, on motorcycles and on foot. The Police Department and SoCPAB plan to expand this traffic safety campaign to other parts of the Southern District in future weeks.
Are Older Drivers a Menace on the Roads? RAND Corporation Says No – Are “Autonomous Cars” in Our Future?Thursday, October 21st, 2010
“Many stop driving in part because they fear they might injure someone else. But the reality is that older drivers themselves are almost six times more likely to be injured in an automobile accident than are drivers ages 25-64. Thus, older drivers face a much greater risk of being harmed from the actions of younger drivers than the other way around.”
So, take that, South Park:

And it looks like cars that can drive themselves is In Our Future:
“Promoting technological innovations, such as autonomous vehicles, that promise to reduce accident rates overall while simultaneously providing older individuals who can no longer drive safely an alternative means of transportation, is likely to have the single greatest impact on the safety and well-being of older drivers and passengers.”
O.K then, learned something new today…
But, c’mon dude, is this the best you can do?
