  • Parking meters for Zoo. Elsbernd takes his son to the zoo by car. Probably because if he took the L, he’d be scared to cross Sloat. The L gets you in as good a proximity as a lot of those free spaces but the crossing of Sloat is a joke. There is a marked crosswalk but there is also high speed traffic that you have to gamble will respect the crosswalk.

  • Chaz

    Zoo… Not to mention the last zoo renovation moved the entrance from near the L offload to much further (~150 yds) into the middle of the parking lot.

    Remove a lane and add bulb-outs to shorten crossing distances.

    Isn’t there a bike lane planned for this half of sloat?
