"SFPD officials haven’t responded to an inquiry asking how anyone could avoid the citations issued on Page this morning."
Here's today's edition of egregious waste of SFPD resources used to harass people on bikes. SFPD officers were posted at the bottom of the hill on Page Street at Octavia Boulevard this morning ticketing bike commuters who squeezed to the left of stopped cars. Freeway-bound drivers routinely ...

Why are Fire Dept. ambulances so slow in SF? Is it the new bulb-outs, making it safer for pedestrians, as the FD chief alleges? New report says it's... shitty management and broken vehicles. WHO COULD HAVE PREDICTED... http://sfbay.ca/2015/07/17/sf-ambulance-response-times-remain-slow/
A civil grand jury reports that the SFFD is required to respond to life-threatening dispatches in 10 minutes or less 90 percent of the time, but does not, nor do they respond to non-life-threatening in the target 20 minutes-or-less window.

It's not that we don't have bigotry in SF. Wet just know what to do about it. "Hundreds Rally Around Defaced LGBT Mural" http://missionlocal.org/2015/07/hundreds-rally-around-defaced-lgbt-mural/ 
More than 400 supporters joined an outdoor rally this evening to support the Galería de la Raza and call for unity and love in the face of a series of hate crimes directed against the theme of LGBT love in an outdoor digital mural at the gallery. The list of speakers at the rally included everyone from District Supervisor David Campos and State Assemblyman Tom Ammiano to artist Rene Yañez, one of the founders of the Galería, and Ani Rivera, its c...

SF's Board of Supes' budget analyst recommended six months ago that SFFD stop contesting bulb-outs, designed to slow traffic and make streets safer for pedestrians. Glad to see that SFFD really, really cares.
As Hoodline has reported, the leadership of the North Beach Neighbors and the SF Fire Fighters Union have drummed up opposition to bulb-outs proposed at four intersections along Columbus Avenue. NBN will hold its second public discussion on the issue tomorrow. While the SF Fire Department's top ...

So much DERP in so little space. Keep it classy, SFPD...
Here's a refresher on Focus on the Five, for those, like Sanford, who need it… As many as 900 pedestrians are injured each year by drivers. The SFPD has used its data to identify the five most common causes of those injuries, as well as the five most dangerous intersections in each police ...

East Palo Alto is the latest city to be prohibited by the San Mateo County Transportation Authority (TA) from using highway funds to build a bike and pedestrian bridge across a highway. In this case, city planners actually found a way to cut costs on a planned ramp expansion at the Highway 101 ...

Also helpful in reducing speeds is, y'know, enforcement. Which takes humans, sure, but holy hell, people: SLOW DOWN!
The redesign of San Jose Avenue took a step forward a month ago when Caltrans removed a traffic lane on a Highway 280 off-ramp leading on to San Jose, a.k.a. the Bernal Cut. The plan is the result of decades of neighborhood advocacy for safer streets, but it is running into opposition from ...

Once again, San Mateo refuses to join the 21st c. Ironic, given its tech company tax base.
San Mateo County officials are moving forward with plans to widen Highway 101 in a futile attempt to pave their way out of traffic congestion. The City/County Association of Governments (C/CAG) has dismissed a more effective and less costly proposal to avoid highway expansion by converting two ...
