    Though most people have not heard of LOS, it has a huge effect on how our cities are designed and how we live.  Here’s hoping that SF comes up with a better metric and that other cities imitate it.

    Double parking is a huge problem (of course, this is what happens when you under-price parking) and needs to be addressed, especially on transit routes. If we could also get better enforcement of bus only lanes (not just when double parking) and “blocking-the-box”, Muni would see marked improvement.
