Vision Zero SF Monthly Highlights December

Vision Zero SF Monthly Highlights December


Hello San Francisco, here’s a round-up of
city projects that are helping us reach our Vision Zero goal of ending traffic fatalities. The SFMTA painted seven new daylighting treatments
in the month of December. Daylighting is a pedestrian safety measure
that removes visual barriers within 10 feet of a crosswalk or intersection. These treatments increase visibility prior
to entering an intersection for those who walk, bike or drive. SFPD Traffic Company has been ‘focusing
on the five.’ Speed enforcement operations were conducted
in locations along the High Injury Network, specifically on 19th Avenue, Bayshore and
Bacon, and Crossover Drive in Golden Gate Park. Remember that safe speeds can save lives. The Indiana Street Bikeway Project installed
new bike lanes on Indiana Street from Cesar Chavez to 25th Street, including a section
that features a two-way protected design. The roadway also includes upgraded sharrow
markings and speed humps to deter speeding. These improvements provide a better, well-connected
bike facility when traveling to and from the Bayview and Mission Bay neighborhoods! And those are Vision Zero’s highlights. For more information on what’s happening
