    I do not understand how there is NEVER any information with these crashes and then we NEVER get any follow up information and the story just fades away. What about those two separate driver vs bike/ped crashes a week ago? Nothing.

    Ah, the south path on the panhandle. I was constantly aggravated by walkers and runners who seemingly chose to share the bike path (and get in my way) until I briefly took up running and experienced the south path first hand. It’s every bit as pitfall-laden as the article makes it out to be. While I hope it gets repaved soon, I’m more excited about a separated bike lane on that stretch of Fell so I can travel at 10 MPH without it being considered “speeding.”

    The links to “SFMTA Report: More Taxis On the Street Means More Profit for Cab Drivers” and “Why is the Panhandle’s Southern Foot Path So Bumpy?” are both blocked by the Chronicle’s stupid new paywall.

    I’m sure Rob Anderson will posting them soon in full on his blog.

  • Really? Strange, it works for me, and I don’t have a subscription. Does this link work?

  • Are you willing to pay for an investigator to follow up? Or quit your day job to become an investigator yourself? Nobody is just going to hand these information to you, especially you aren’t one of the parties involved.

  • mikesonn

    Why have media outlets? There is plenty of follow up reporting on many stories. That’s a stupid comment.

  • Are you saying that Aaron should something different? Neither you and I are bosses of media outlets where we can direct what reporters should report on. Is this your usual rant or something you want to be serious about?

  • mikesonn

    I’m very serious that I want follow up on these stories. Aaron is doing his best and I commend him for his hard work. But if we, the readers (of this blog or any other media outlet), don’t ask for more follow up reporting why would they provide it? How is so wrong to ask/demand that more details are needed on these 2x/3x/4x a week crashes so that we can better assess the situation on our streets and begin to address recurring problems.

    Yes, that link works.
