Heading east the other day:
And then the return trip heading west, just a few blocks away:
There’s something wrong with our pedestrians.*
There’s something wrong with SFGov being afraid to say anything about it…
*Are drivers in Frisco worse than average, like compared with CA or the US? IDK. But our peds are much worse than average, mostly due to an attitude problem. Oh well.
This is how they roll down Hayward(?) way:
And here’s a review:
As Tolstoy said in Quotable Notables, “Give me learning, sir, and you may keep your black bread”

Here’s an interesting contrast. The local is jaywalking on the far side of the intersection, and he’s made it most of the way across, and plus he’s running.
Compare that with the Airbnb-type tourists, who, in this case, were on the near side of the intersection, and had not made it most of the way across when their light turned red and, of course, were not running:
Here it is, looking west at around 37th Avenue:
And here’s what you should be looking at – the aging SFPD SUV with radar on the left, the 30 MPH speed limit sign in the middle, and the SPEED LIMIT 25 MPH / SENIOR CITIZEN FACILITY signs on the right:
Read all about it here, courtesy of a disgruntled Prius driver what got a ticket last year, when the speed limit zones on this stretch of Fulton went 35-25-35. As you can see, these days it goes 30-25-30, but the concept’s the same.
One would think SFGov would want to put in a few more traffic signals in this area, but one would be wrong.
Well, I suppose it’s three peds, actually. Now let’s see how they do:
The two peds on the left act properly and the jogger ped does not.
There’s room for improvement at this intersection, SFGov/SFMTA.
