Did you know that last year over 960 people were hit by cars in S.F.? That's the largest number since the year 2000!

Streets that are dangerous by design need to be fixed, and without the typical red tape.

The idea of removing the northern section of the 280 near Mission Bay is gaining more traction. 

Per Walk SF's Elizabeth Stampe: this would be "an exciting opportunity to re-orient our city around sustainable public transportation and create a more walkable city."

Great interview with Jeff Speck and discussion on walkability being the key to fix our city(ies):

"The reason we’re not making that much progress is that our cities...are being designed, street by street...and the biggest complaint you hear in American cities, day after day, is about traffic. You know, we’ve lost 3.2 million Americans to car crashes — 3.2 million — and that doesn’t seem to have any impact on our policy making."

The column will come out every four weeks in the Thursday "96 Hours" section of the SF Chronicle, so keep an eye out for it.

Story
Tagline
San Francisco's pedestrian advocacy organization
Introduction

Walk San Francisco promotes walking as a safe and sustainable form of transportation that increases our city’s livability, enhances public life, and improves public and environmental health. We seek to improve San Francisco’s walking environment through activism and policy advocacy that educates residents, city agencies, and elected officials regarding the need for more pedestrian-friendly streets.

Our goals are:

  • To ensure the design of a human-scaled, pedestrian-oriented city.
  • To promote community attitudes and government policies that favor walking.
  • To increase funding for pedestrian-friendly transportation planning and projects.
  • To reduce pedestrian deaths and injuries.
  • To increase walking in San Francisco by making it fun!
  • To make San Francisco the most walkable city in the United States.
