  • I think that was a typo and Nevius meant to say:
    “SF a Dangerous City for Carless Pedestrians”
    In other words, it is dangerous for all pedestrians.

  • Charles, well put. The column made it sound like we need streets like Walnut Creek so that cars can go faster and then the pedestrians will be scared into acting like real humans – like getting a car themselves.

    Maybe that is why CW doesn’t live here himself…
