Maybe the Peninsula could learn something from Hartford...
March 30 marked the launch of CTfastrak, the 10-mile busway running between Hartford and New Britain that has all the ingredients of real bus rapid transit: exclusive lanes, off-board fare collection, level boarding, and multiple routes using the BRT infrastructure.

Disgusting.
In February, a pickup truck driver in suburban Eugene, Oregon, ran through a red light at 40 miles an hour, killing three children — 4-year-old Tyler Hudson, 5-year-old McKenzie Hudson, and 8-year-old John Day — and critically injuring their mother. The family was walking with the right-of-way ...

Gotta love the 0.1 percent: "“There are plenty of marinas on the east coast, where I also live, that have adequate parking,” said one man at a public meeting on the project in September 2013, the first of four. “The cars are not a problem.

Updated at 11:38 p.m. with further response from the Recreation and Parks Department below. The Marina Boulevard bicycle and pedestrian path was supposed to be car-free by now. The years-old plan to remove the 57 car parking spaces on the stretch between Scott and Baker Streets is scheduled to ...

If Willie Brown and other "big-bucks" anonymous donors are for more parking in Mission Bay, then common sense dictates the rest of us should be against it.
The Golden State Warriors’ plans for an 18,000-seat arena in San Francisco’s Mission Bay are suddenly running into big-time political problems. An anonymous group of what organizers describe as big-bucks donors to UCSF hired an imposing cast of consultants — including former UCSF Senior Vice Chancellor Bruce Spaulding and, for a time, Chronicle columnist and former Mayor Willie Brown — to block the plan for the arena and adjacent twin office to...

First, the good news: In the last quarter of 2014, SFPD increased speeding enforcement 91 percent, from 933 to 1781 citywide. The bad news? Tickets to pedestrians more than doubled, from 436 to 1110, continuing a recent trend of increasing tickets for people walking and biking faster than those ...
