The signs say RADAR ENFORCED, but the new thing is LIDAR:

IDK, maybe somebody hacked this sign to say what it says. Regardless, this is a big improvement over the 10 MPH sign it used to be just a few days back:
More changes are coming for this area, before 2017, to prevent you from using JFK the way you’re used to…
This official “SLOW TO 10 MPH” sign was up near Speedway Meadow during Outside Lands 2016, but it’s still there now long after OL’s blown town:
The limit goes back up to 25 MPH near 30th Avenue?
(This trailer doesn’t “see” bikes, AFAIK, unlike some others.)
Changes to the “access” we have to JFK are coming soon, but I don’t know what they are and if this is a part of it.
Our Presidio sometimes records license plate numbers and checks timestamps to see who’s “cutting through” the park (instead of having the Presidio as a destination in itself). The Presidio People think “Cut Through Traffic” is evil, but really, all traffic is cut-through traffic to somebody. Oh well.
If SFGov wants people to use Fulton instead of JFK, there will be some problems with that…
Oh No, LIDAR! – “City to Digitally Map Market Street on Sunday Morning” – Bike Riders Told to Scram, TemporarilyThursday, November 12th, 2015
Artist’s conception of so-called “LIDAR trucks” in action. We’re through the looking-glass, people:
All the deets:
- The survey will take place between 3:00 a.m. – 5:00 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 15.
- Stopping or parking on Market Street and the adjacent side streets is prohibited between 1:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. to ensure the street is clear for the survey. Tow-Away signs have been posted.
- The survey truck will run along Market Street between Octavia Boulevard and Steuart Street four times in order to get an accurate representation of all the features.
- The truck also will measure the street features along all the side streets in the project area.
- There are Temporary Tow-Away signs posted along Market Street and in zones along all the cross streets in the vicinity so that vehicles don’t block the “view” of the curb. PLEASE OBEY THE TEMPORARY TOW-AWAY SIGNS.
- The LiDAR truck will be escorted by a police motorcade as it cannot stop along Market Street for any reason, since that will distort the data collection.
- The center lanes of Market Street will remain open to all vehicle traffic including commercial and private vehicles, transit and taxis. The curb lanes will be closed due to the survey motorcade.
- The LiDAR truck will run against the flow of traffic in two of its four runs, so PLEASE STAY ALERT AND DRIVE SLOWLY.
- The SFMTA signal shop will place all 26 traffic signals on Market Street onto flashing red for everyone’s safety and the safety of the LiDAR truck and police motorcade.
- Bicycle riders are encouraged to take alternate routes.
