Addison Street resolution hits road block

Supervisor Bevan Dufty wanted to send a message to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency that it needs to install traffic calming measures, like speed bumps, along Addison Street in Diamond Heights in short order.

He has concerns over speeding and violence associated from those who are speeding.

But on Tuesday, several of his colleagues objected to a resolution Dufty introduced urging the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency to install traffic calming measures.

Supervisor Sean Elsbernd and others said it sets a bad precedent to bring such resolutions forward to try and influence MTA when The City has made an effort, which was backed by voters in 2007, to grant the MTA more autonomy.

Dufty, getting the sense that he didn't have the votes to pass the resolution, sent it back to the committee level.
