@ECJ: Right, the buses are causing gridlock, not the private automobiles that make up probably 90% of motor vehicle traffic.
@GlenBArk: Yes, because poor people are just like cars.
@Baker Read Stop: Indeed, stopping at every sign on a bicycle is practical and necessary because a bike has the same impacts and limitations as a car, right? Do you stop at every sign when you ride a bike, when you can already see you have the right of way by slowing and yielding? If so, you're an anomaly and are likely frustrating others at intersections by confusing them and holding things up.
@sfsoma: Yeah, it's not like there are people who legitimately want drivers to obey the turns and stay off Market Street.
@Maria: Who, drivers? Well, the vast majority of the street space in San Francisco is dedicated primarily to moving and storing cars, and the city has been built over the last 50 years with minimum off-street car parking requirements that developers and residents often don't even want, and there's car parking along nearly every single curb where it can "fit" (and then some). Plus, the city provides use of most of that land for free or really cheap (hence why it's so hard to find a spot to park your car), and lets cars slow down Muni and endanger people walking and cycling....Is that enough?
