  • Is any transportation myth more harmful than the one about free parking being good for business?

  • mikesonn

    I’d like to see a tracker on the sidebar of car v ped/cyclist crashes in which the driver has yet to be or will never be charged. I’m glad the cyclist is being punished for his irresponsible actions; but let’s get real here, most drivers never see citation let alone criminal charges.

  • Bikester

    u mad?

  • EL

    I’m really surprised to see the cyclist charged, since it appears to be inconsistent with a motorist killing a pedestrian.  Perhaps there are specific circumstances that resulted in a decision by the DA to charge.

  • Perhaps the specific circumstance was the former President of the California State Senate pressuring the DA for charges in an editorial in Examiner?

  • James Figone

    I can’t think of more harmful myth.  It is puzzling that we implemented SFPark, the most sophisticated curbside parking management system in the country, in part to help businesses by ensuring increased parking turnover yet are not willing to use it on Sundays and evenings.
