Project details

Last June, after a woman was tragically killed by a speeding driver in Golden Gate Park, Mayor Ed Lee directed the SFMTA and other agencies to make drastic safety improvements in targeted areas of the city – one of those was speed humps in the park. Since they were installed on JFK Drive, average car speeds on that street have dropped from 32 to 26 miles per hour. The SFMTA and Rec & Park want to expand that safety success to MLK Drive, the other main thoroughfare in the park. The plan would bring nine speed humps to MLK Drive and one more on JFK Drive. We are excited to see continued safety improvements that will help us reach our Vision Zero goal of zero deaths on our roads.
