  • Wow:

    “The rising cost of fuel and insurance is forcing one in four London drivers off the roads, a study showed today. New research shows that 24 per cent of motorists in the capital have given up their car over the past 12 months.”

    This Octavia Boulevard travesty is just the latest example of SFPD’s outrageous bias benefitting another bad motorist. 

    No department can legitimately justify ticketing day-time cyclists for riding without reflectors while simultaneously REFUSING to cite a motorist whose admittedly illegal actions injured another road user. SFPD should have to explain its “See no (motorist) evil” approach on Market Street. This is beyond ridiculous.
