    When will SFist start a map of speeding drivers, stop sign running drivers, texting drivers, etc? Is a little parity too much to ask for?

    or even just car crashes, you know, the thing that kills and injures almost 1000 people in SF a year…

    Two wrongs don’t make a right, Sean. And in fact if you prefer an anti-car bias to your news, then this site has it in spades.

    But this is a serious issue too, so can we at least hear your ideas for fixing it?

    Peninsula drivers are aggressive towards peds in crosswalks. I deal with it on a daily basis here in Redwood City.

    @141e84fb7e09b40a7e800199c687a7f7:disqus I’m not defending sidewalk-riders. They should know better. However they aren’t doing it to spite pedestrians. People ride on the sidewalk because our city planners didn’t design safe streets that account for non-automotive forms of transportation.

    The larger point is that once again the media (and this time the non-traditional type) is narrowly focusing on a type of violation that very rarely results in significant injury while paying almost no attention to the types that do. Again, not saying that people should ride on the sidewalk, but you can’t make a serious claim that it number of incidents that result from it come anywhere close to that caused by drivers.
