    I am for traffic calming measures, more crosswalks, and whatever needed to fix the issues, but if you cross a multi lane street in the middle with traffic in both directions you’re really being stupid. I don’t know how many near accidents I’ve seen with pedestrians running across Divisadero with no attention to the traffic. Yes, that street has an awful design and it needs to be fixed. However, that doesn’t change the fact that running into such a situation is careless and insane.

    I heard that they’re about to release an upgrade that will give you a physically protected bike lane. But you have to pay $3.99 for the pro version.

  • Unfortunately not everyone making mistakes or taking risky chances on that street is facing the same level of consequences.
