    According to Census data (via) Google, SF’s population has increased by 2.1% since 2008. So a 1.5% absolute increase in the number of vehicles registered means the share of residents with a vehicle has decreased. Nothing inconsistent about that.

    According to the news article about VTA, the boy was in stable condition, so he was not killed. According to another news report, the boy was standing too close to the edge of platform. http://news.kron4.com/news/vta-train-hits-child/
