Masonic Tableau: What Do You See Here on the Needlessly-Wide Sidewalk? The Cyclist or the BMW?

I’ll tell you, what I notice is not the attractiva on the orange, fully-loaded Public Bike from Public Bikes, but the illegally-parked, aging BMW 3-series convertible.

But that’s just me.

Hey, who do you think the SFMTA outreached when they wanted to focus-group the plan to put in more unnecessary trees on Masonic for $20,000,000 from Uncle Sucker and/or the taxpayers of the State of California? Do you think it was the users of Masonic Street or the people, like the BMW owner, who live next to it? That’s right, the SFMTA only focus-grouped the nearby residents of Masonic Avenue.

Is that the correct way to do things, SFMTA?

I don’t think it is.

Oh well.

Anyway, cyclists should continue to feel free to use the excessively-wide sidewalks of Masonic, depending on conditions, despite any peer pressure they might feel from governmentally-produced garbage such as this.
