As part of Vision Zero SF, San Francisco police and the CHP recently joined forces to catch speeding drivers on The Embarcadero and improve safety for pedestrians. As stated in the article, “the speed limit on The Embarcadero is 30 miles per hour, but law enforcement officials said people often see it as a modified expressway, often traveling at much faster speeds. At Green Street and The Embarcadero, law enforcement officers on motorcycles were lined up, waiting to nab speeders going 40, 45 miles an hour and up.”
Officers also made an effort to nab motorists not looking out for pedestrians. According to the article, “a citation for failing to yield in San Francisco is a $238 fine and a point on the driver’s license.” View full article.
