New Safety Initiatives from SFDPW

The San Francisco Department of Public Works is committed to safety and is implementing several new initiatives in order to make safety a priority.

Two of these initiatives will also help contribute to Vision Zero SF goals, and include:

  1. “Implementing a new policy minimizing left turns while driving our trucks and automobiles. Studies have found that left-hand turns are big contributors to injury accidents involving pedestrians, cyclists and drivers.”
  2. “Looking at purchasing smaller trucks for our fleet to make it easier to navigate our narrow streets.”
