    Word on Twitter is that Northern Station is back on the Wiggle today ticketing cyclists.

    Looks like the Central Subway is going to get built, one way or the other. Even if they don’t have the funds, the support or even the goodwill of the communities that it will benefit.

    SFMTA has said they will continue to build with what money they do have even if the other funding is still questionable. Meaning that if the $900M from the Feds falls through, we’ll have a lot of holes dug around the city waiting until the next time the funding comes up for a vote – which could be a year or 20 years.

    In the issue of fairness for harassing road users for stop sign violations, I plan on asking park station to stake out the intersection at Central and Waller.  It’s a steep hill adjacent to a primary school and car drivers routinely violate the pedestrian right of way turning right.  Arguably more dangerous than any intersection in the wiggle.

    SFPD seems to be acting on the ‘squeaky wheel gets the grease’ approach to traffic enforcement rather than targetting locations and road users that incident data shows are dangerous.  I guess we should all start being squeaky wheels.  Sheesh.

    Who do you call? There’s an intersection near me where 8 out of 10 drivers just roll through.

    The Central Subway could end up like the Cincinnati subway, built but never used: http://www.cincinnati-transit.net/subway.html.  Who knows, it might become a future attraction in Underground San Francisco in 2042…

    Here’s a link to a list of SFPD stations and locations.  I believe we can call or email to ask for help. http://sf-police.org/index.aspx?page=796
