Education to Last a Lifetime

The YMCA of San Francisco’s Y-bike program – funded by the SFMTA – has been providing in-school bike education to middle and high school students since 2009, but has just begun expansion to elementary schools! The goal is to provide opportunities for San Francisco kids to get on a bike – perhaps for the first time – and learn the basics of safe biking. Check out this photo from the Presidio, where Spring Valley Elementary students learned practices that will guide their learning and decisions well beyond their childhood years.

A Safer Passage Between the Hills

People who ride a bike on the storied zigzag route through Duboce Triangle and the Lower Haight may have noticed that new safety upgrades on the Wiggle are complete. With enhancements such as bulbouts, raised crosswalks, a traffic diverter, landscaping and bike signals, the Wiggle will be a safer place for walking, biking and driving.

Eyes on the Street…Literally!

You may have noticed an increased number of SFPD officers citing for distracted driving. This is part of a series of six high-visibility enforcement events that are intended to not only dissuade drivers from operating phones while driving, but also to inform the public that ending distracted driving is a high priority for the city. It caught the attention of KRON reporter Stanley Roberts, who featured an enforcement event in a recent People Behaving Badly segment. Give it a watch and tell your friends to obey the law by not using their phones while driving!

Quicker Improvements for Increased Safety

Folsom and Howard Streets in SoMa are going to get much safer in the near-term with all kinds of much-needed improvements, such as increasing yellow zones for safer loading, adding boarding islands for safer Muni passengers, and adding red zones near crosswalks to improve the visibility. But perhaps the most visible to users of the street will be the parking-protected bike lane on Folsom that began construction last week. The lane will make biking safer on this heavily-traveled route and help us reach our goal of zero traffic deaths.

Know Where Drivers Are Distracted? Tell us!

Distracted driving is dangerous and all too common on San Francisco streets. That is why Vision Zero SF is launching a first of its kind high visibility enforcement and education campaign aimed at reducing distracted driving. To launch the campaign, SFMTA is crowdsourcing locations where San Franciscans have observed or experienced distracted driving and would like to see it enforced in early 2018. You can participate at the crowdsoutcing website. It’s quick and easy – share with your friends and neighbors!

“It’s Not a Freeway, It’s a Park”

Last June, after a woman was tragically killed by a speeding driver in Golden Gate Park, Mayor Ed Lee directed the SFMTA and other agencies to make drastic safety improvements in targeted areas of the city – one of those was speed humps in the park. Since they were installed on JFK Drive, average car speeds on that street have dropped from 32 to 26 miles per hour. The SFMTA and Rec & Park want to expand that safety success to MLK Drive, the other main thoroughfare in the park. The plan would bring nine speed humps to MLK Drive and one more on JFK Drive. We are excited to see continued safety improvements that will help us reach our Vision Zero goal of zero deaths on our roads.
