    Hi Aaron – Missing a key word in this story title 🙂

    “Rec and Parks Driver Pleads Guilty to Manslaughter for Killing Woman in Park”

    Should be… “Rec and Parks Driver Pleads *NOT* Guilty to Manslaughter for Killing Woman in Park”

    Scott Wiener to propose legislation to allow in-law units.

    Great idea. But if someone converts their garage permanently to housing, their curb cut has to go.

    Muni is going to start running the 5 Limited on Monday:

    There were city crews out today doing the restriping work on Fulton between Shrader and Central to reduce the lanes from four to two.

    Currently you have “… Removal of One Two Left Turn Lanes …” for the proposed change at Van Ness and Broadway. How about this :
    Left Turn Lane Vanishes in Proposed SFCTA Pilot – Southbound Van Ness Down to One (currently two) at Broadway
    . Or you could tuck in another “of“. Editor’s choice.

    That SFExaminer article was a little confusing at first. Then I realized that the Chinatown representatives wanted the choke point at Van Ness and Broadway narrowed to make the Broadway route to the Financial District less desirable. I remember [a] using CA-480 to get to work near Sansome and Lombard (Levi’s Plaza area) and [b] the howls from Chinatown when the Embarcadero Freeway (aka CA-480) was torn down and not rebuilt. Funny how values change over time.
