    A rebuttal to Marshall Kilduff. Thirty of us (or more) have more right to the lane than cars w/ single drivers.

    Can you use another link other than the East Bay Times? It’s behind a paywall.

  • voltairesmistress

    Would it be possible for SF Streetsblog to publish links to more interesting articles in a larger array of publications? There often are thought-provoking articles on mobility, transit, etc. in The Economist, Citylab, Vox, The New York Times, and from a variety of research institutes and international news sources. Yet all we readers see at Streetsblog are very local publications. The result contributes to a more provincial outlook and an acceptance of local limits on imagining better solutions. And it makes SF Streetsblog pretty dull beans.

  • Except, of course, when a cyclist hops into his/her car and assumes a different role.

  • It’s intentionally biased towards the Bay Area since there are other cities covered separately as well as a national site.

  • voltairesmistress

    Yes, sort of, but that is kind of a cop out: there are articles in these wider publications that deal with the Bay Area or California or that mention our region in comparative analysis. And there are plenty of pretty obviously relevant stories, even if they don’t single out our region. Traffic and transport have similar dynamics worldwide. Ignoring that overlap does all of us a disservice.
    Streetsblog for San Francisco has gone down in quality the last couple of years. The boring, unimaginative choice of news headlines and lack of comment or debate are indicators of that decline in quality.
    I am about ready to give up on this once lively blog. I suspect many readers already have.

    did not used to be mind-numbingly boring and provincial.

    Yup, cyclists skew towards the yuppie entitlement constituency
