  • San Francisco is no longer tourist friendly. When natives can no longer get across town easily, how do they expect the tourists to navigate through this city with bike lanes where parking lanes should be and red and green and purple streets. SF has the dubious distinction of being the third most difficult city in the country to navigate. Way to go, SFMTA. Do you feel safer now with a lot of stressed out drivers behind with wheel.?

    To add insult to injury, we hear that a consortium of the SF Bicycle Coalition, Nelson/Nygaard, and individuals working for the SFMTA, have a hired lobbyist to re-write the rules to legalize their Gold Gate Park disaster. Your tax dollars at work?
