  • Just watched the SFPD ticket a bunch of cars and cyclists for running a stop sign. Was nice to see them enforcing the law equally.

    Santa Rosa just keeps coming up with great ideas to not want to be a pedestrian there.

  • mikesonn

    What intersection?

  • Alamo Square area. Not going to be more specific, because as long as they’re targeting all violators I don’t really mind.

  • mikesonn

    Just asking because it is so rare.

    Bus riders don’t seem to get a fair shake
    ‘For the people without cars, it’s all just more noise coming from people who don’t have to worry about buying bus passes or waiting at a bus stop during the coldest winter days.’

  • Also remember Oracle OpenWorld is starting this week which means Howard between 3rd and 4th streets will be closed (;jsessionid=50BCFEB972A1490174AA9A9522BA83EB?nav.type=0&nav.filter=1109&nav.base=1109&id=543). Not sure how they get away with closing down a major bike lane for a week every year, but I guess if you have enough $$$ the city will do anything.

  • Pierce and Fulton. Fun hill to ride down!

  • Wow, that Zipcar ad is REALLY out of touch. 

  • SFPD was also running a sting on cyclists riding on the sidewalk at 4th/King Caltrain. Ticketing cyclists riding on the empty sidewalk… just past the row of cabs parked in the bike lane who were NOT being ticketed.
