Oh, [see Comments] so this IS medicine, of a sort.
In that case, our SFMTA is giving you a green light for your binge-drinking problem, hurrah!
And yet he’s still making more money than you:
This case is similar to those against Asiana and Boeing for Flight 214, in that seat belt design might have played a very small role. Perhaps these seat belts could have been designed better, I don’t know. Perhaps we’ll find out after trial or, more likely, this case will settle for a couple million and we’ll never hear about it again…
IDK, how fast do you need to pedal on this downhill stretch of the Panhandle Multi-Use Trail what with the stiff prevailing tailwind and the super-light bike and the super-skinny tires?
I’ll tell you, you don’t need to pedal at all, from Stanyan to the fucking DMV (and Beyond, if the traffic signals work in your favor) – just really pump up your tires and try it sometime.
I’ll tell you, you know who else mixes up sport with transpo? The good bulk* of your BMW drivers, who cause more than their fair share of problems on our roads, despite having better-than-average reflexes and whatnot.
A good portion of your BMW car drivers need to slow the fuck down, and certain other people, perhaps you, see above, might need to as well.
That’s my point.

A modern day warrior
Mean, mean stride
Today’s Tom Sawyer
Mean, mean pride
Though his mind is not for rent
Don’t put him down as arrogant
His reserve a quiet defense
Riding out the day’s events
Balance, control and effortlessnessness – this Bro knows how to get around the Big City in a way that’s faster and cheaper than MUNI, America’s Slowest Big City Transit System.
Woosh, quiet and swift, passing cyclists and #5 Fultons on McAllister, in the Western Addition:
The world is, the world is
Love and life are deep
Maybe as his eyes are wide
Exit the warrior
Today’s Tom Sawyer
He gets by on you
And the energy you trade
He gets right on to the friction of the day
Now if you want real “high-speed motor traffic,” well then look to the 280 freeway.
But if you want a poorly-designed glorified freeway offramp with lots of slow-moving bumper-to-bumper gridlock, well then Octavia is your bingo.
See? This is typical. Traffic has been jammed up here starting about a week after this road opened. This is exactly what low-speed traffic looks like:
No it’s not!
Lying hurts your case. Lying doesn’t help your case.

If you want. There’s really only one block that’s kind of steep, but think of all the stop signs you won’t have to blow through.
They used to have a kind of bike lane on the left side of Oak but it’s gone now.
But the right side looks all right and traffic doesn’t move all that fast so it works.
(Coming back is a different story, much steeper going uphill on neighboring Fell and Page.)
