SFMTA Votes to Make Market Street Safety Project Permanent
It seems like SFMTA is having a good week!
Yesterday, the Board of Directors unanimously voted to require eastbound drivers on Market to turn right at Tenth and Sixth streets. According to this article, since the trial began in September 2009, transit speeds and pedestrian and bicycle traffic have increased.
The Sixth Street turn hasn’t received the same level of compliance from drivers as Tenth Street but with the turns made permanent, police will be able to enforce the rule [article].
I'm happy to see projects that work get reinforcement. But since I'm neither a driver nor a biker, I'm curious to see what people who do drive/bike that route to work everyday think!
