In Lieu of Speed Limit Signs for Bicycles in the GGP Panhandle, We Now Have, “SLOW DOWN! – ENJOY the PANHANDLE”

Friday, August 11th, 2017

See? Note the care that this tagger used to not block the new “wayfinding” feature.

I saw one of these notices near Baker. This is near Ashbury:

I’m guessing an Area Pedestrian thinks some go too fast on their bikes.

And actually, you don’t even need to pedal when coming inbound – starting at 0 MPH at Stanyan, you can coast all the way to the DMV and end up going 16.3 MPH, on knobby tires no less, just saying…

New Electronic Sign Literally Tells San Francisco Drivers to SLOW DOWN, SLOW DOWN, SLOW DOWN

See?

At slower speeds, it tells you your speed.

I’m not sure what the limit is here. I was thinking that the sign might know WHEN CHILDREN ARE PRESENT or if it could know the limit based upon the day of the week / month, but now I’m thinking, nah, it prolly doesn’t.

Other signs will flash your speed at you when you’re going too fast or change the numbers to red, but this one equates one over the limit with 30 by telling all speeders to

SLOW DOWN

Here’s How You Can Tell Our DPW is NOT a Safety Organization: It Allows Its Drivers to Run Red Lights All the Time

Friday, April 14th, 2017

Hey, what’s the speed of a DPW street sweeper when it’s sweeping? IDK but that’s the same speed that DPW operators run red lights, as here:

Now this could have been a legal right on red, but it wasn’t, ’cause the driver is under so much time pressure there’s not time to stop or slow down, one is forced to conclude.

Similarly, on Divisadero, drivers don’t stop for reds either, and in some cases that includes traveling straight through an intersection, such as the one Grove, seemingly every time, on a red.

It would be a trivial exercise to get SFGov employees to follow CA driving laws. (You know, if you were motivated to figure out how to do it AND if you didn’t care a whit about the massive massive blowback you, a department head, would suffer.)

The Speed Limit on Western JFK Drive in Golden Gate Park is No Longer Just 10 MPH – “SLOW DOWN”

Monday, August 29th, 2016

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…
