Mid-Market car restrictions
There's been an on-going traffic experiment which started Sept. 29 as a six-week test with forced right turns for eastbound cars at Sixth and Eighth streets. But in November, SFMTA extended the test indefinitely and expanded the private car ban west to 10th Street. Merchants complain that it has hurt business by making it more difficult to get to mid-Market - while bicyclists really like it.
Personally, I like the idea even though as a driver, I'm even more annoyed going down Market St. Market St. is impossible to navigate in the first place, and maybe this can create a space for the pedestrian community to grow.
