An SFPD Crackdown on Drivers in Haight-Ashbury, Lately

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017

You never used to see this, regular SFPD patrol cars enforcing traffic laws. Typically, the Motor Patrol (motorcycles) would get you – they’d enforce traffic all the live long day. And if you got a ticket from a regular patrol car, well, you must have really messed up.

But these are the days of enforcement actions, where the focus is on traffic patrol.

Hey, does Park Station sometimes go a month or two not handing out a single solitary ticket to a pedestrian or bike rider? Yes, yes it does. Look at their stats. It seems that, in the interest of safety, the SFPD should have those groups ascared of getting a ticket as well. But no, zero enforcement, at least during some months, means zero risk of getting a ticket in the area* and that’s why about half of the ped vs. driver and bike vs. driver accidents in Frisco are the fault of the driver, and the other half not.**

*It varies by station, of course, but the whole city is like this, with bad-attitudes peds all over.

**And this fact is so politically charged that we the public no longer get to hear about the fault of deadly accidents about town. I think that disclosure ended in calendar 2014. These days the focus is upon “mistakes” made by all concerned, but that’s not a safety approach, that’s a political approach. So hearing a non-engineer*** mayoral (politics!) appointee (politics!) talking about his safety organization is a bit a joke, some feel.

***Not a necessity, but it’d be nice.
