SFMTA: Painted Safety Zones

“You may have seen intersections on Howard, Polk and 6th streets with a khaki-colored painted area and flexible white posts that wrap around the sidewalk corner.

We call these new treatments “painted safety zones” – they’re cheap, effective and easy-to-implement, and make a big improvement for pedestrian safety.”

Ways that painted safety zones improve pedestrian safety:

  1. Creating more distance between turning vehicles and pedestrians waiting on the sidewalk
  2. Encouraging vehicles to turn more slowly
  3. Maintaining good visibility between drivers and people stepping into the crosswalk”
