    Reading the story about South Van Ness, it makes me recall the FUD thrown around about calming Potrero because of emergency vehicles. If we slow down traffic speeds – we’ll need fewer emergency vehicles to being with. I think that’s the more appropriate goal.

    I agree with this. But additionally, why do they need to be so big? Japan builds emergency vehicles that fit in the urban context, not an urban context for emergency vehicles. Currently fire chiefs in many cities have more say over development than zoning. And that’s crazy.
