Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015

I’ve never seen this before – look, both feet are off the ground at the same time and he’s not in a crosswalk

This BRT Rendering Shows How Our SFMTA Views Us The People – But Is This a Homeless Person or Just an Old Pushing Groceries?

These are most of the people depicted in this Van Ness BRT proposal from the SFMTA:

MRU - Van Ness BRT 11.16.15 copy

At first I thought the right side showed a stolen metal shopping cart being pushed by a street person, but then I thought it might be a stroller, but then I ENHANCED the image to see it’s a privately-owned folding shopping cart being pushed by I don’t know who.

Of course this isn’t a typical amount of peds you’d expect to find using the crosswalks at this intersection, but perhaps our SFMTA is, once again, being “aspirational.”

And this rendering is a lot better than some we’ve seen in the past, like this urbanist’s fever dream of our already-failed Octavia “Boulevard,” which turned out to be somehow too wide and not wide enough at the same time IRL:

You know, before somebody, some ped gets clobbered?

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?

The Happy Gingers of San Francisco – Can You Guess Which Street They’re Riding On?

[We already have a winner. Thank you, drive through.]

This is exactly how this shot ended up being framed – had the wrong lens on and not much time. Anyway, if you examine the several clues* and then make a guess, you’ll be proved correct, most likely.

*Including the fact that, IMO, you can easily guess – that’s a clue too.
