The Bike Lane in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle Should Be Widened

Friday, November 15th, 2013

Some people call it a Multi-Use Path, but really it’s a bike lane that peds can use as well.

Anyway, widening would make things better all around.

A Rare Sight in the Western Addition: No White Zebra Stripes on This Crosswalk

Anyway, the zebra people just did Fulton and Masonic the past few days.

Zebra stripes, zebra stripes everywhere soon, looks like.

Now is this the kind of small project that the aides of District Five Supervisor London Breed would dismissively call a “chop shop project,” the likes of which SFGov purportedly doesn’t do anymore?

It sure looks that way to me.

Dramatic MUNI Bus vs.Car Accident in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle – Evening of June 20th, 2013

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

Afonso Salcedo from The Haight said via Nextdoor for iPhone:

Just wanted to share some details on this accident. It happened right in front of me during my walk earlier this evening.The car turned left onto Oak from Masonic, and the Muni bus going North on Masonic crashed into him.

They immediately went off-road and went through the panhandle all the way to the Fell corner with Masonic.

I immediately came to the car door, and with two other guys, we made sure the driver was safe and helped him get out. The door was stuck in, but was opened with some force.

Everyone in the bus was safe. The bus driver was in shock and the three of us picked him up and moved him outside to lay him on the ground. One of the guys with me was a random nurse who happened to be on his bike nearby, so that was great.”

‘Cause by the time you hear about this opportunity from the MSM or a blog, it’ll be too late.

There’ll be plenty of space to roam:

See you there!

Look Ma, No Hands! – Heading West on the Panhandle Bike Path – Should This “Wilderness Trail” Be Widened?

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

You know, before somebody, some ped gets clobbered?

Click to expand

It will happen like this – a roadie traveling west, the downhill direction, will be “making time” or “flying” at 20-something MPH and s/he will clobber a pedestrian, perhaps Chris Bucchere-style.

So, I think wider would be better.

I mean, you wouldn’t want to narrow the thing, would you?
