Given Philly’s experience with fatal collisions caused by bicyclists, is the SFBC & SF Streetsblog ready to support SFPD cycling enforcement as a pro-active measure to improving safety? They can start at 12th and Market.
Statistics don’t back up your point. If there’s an area that needs more enforcement and traffic design improvements in order to make things safer for pedestrians, it’s the area of motorized traffic.
Actually, the statistics do back up my point. Bicyclists are involved in 15% of all injury collisions in SF. Can anyone say with a straight face that cyclists receive 15% of citations issued by SFPD? Or is it your assumption that the cyclist is never at fault?
“You don't need any quotas. Just tell your officers to go out and cite the most egregious and dangerous violations on the streets. And use statistics, not your car-centric bias, to determine what those are.”
