  • Transit renaissance at Fort Mason/Northern Waterfront? LMAO!
    It’s really sad when extending an unreliable, outdated streetcar is deemed big news in a supposed tech-centric, transit first city with people anxiously waiting decades for funding to get it built. OMG! I cannot wait until 2040 to spend an hour on a streetcar going from Powell/Market to Fort Mason!

    Re: the “3D crosswalk,” I’m not sure I like the idea of tricking drivers by making it look like there is a barrier in the middle of the road. I think signs for public roads should be honest and not based on deception. Otherwise, we create a situation where people have to second-guess reality and what they’re seeing while they are driving.

    To use a more extreme example to make a point, what if instead of barriers, they painted a picture of pedestrians? And then later, if a driver sees a real pedestrian in the same area, do we really want drivers to have to evaluate whether they’re seeing a real pedestrian or a picture they can drive over without stopping?

  • Agreed. As a driver, I am expected to understand the standard signs in order to pass my driver’s exam, not be put on the spot to second guess something in the road that’s not real while keeping my attention focused on the road and what’s around me.
