#VisionZeroAtWork Signs Placed Around SF

This week you might have noticed some new and informational signs along your commute. A few days ago, #VisionZeroAtWork posters went up all over San Francisco to explain some of the various safety-related engineering installments that will help us reach our Vision Zero goal.

The posters will help commuters learn more about protected bike lanes, bus bulb outs, pedestrian scrambles, shark’s teeth, daylighting, and other street improvements they might have recently seen for the first time in their neighborhoods. 

San Francisco commuter Kristy Lin Billuni was so excited to see a poster about pedestrian scrambles that she tweeted out this ecstatic selfie! It’s great to see residents and visitors alike learning about the ways Vision Zero is making our city safer for all. Smiles all around for safer streets!

Tenderloin Rolls

The Tenderloin is possibly the neighborhood in San Francisco most impacted by severe and fatal collisions. So it is with much excitement that the SFMTA unveiled that central neighborhood’s first protected bike lane on Turk Street! The new bikeway will connect popular east-west routes to Market Street and help Tenderloin residents cycle more safely toward jobs, neighbors and friends in Western Addition.

Education to Last a Lifetime

The YMCA of San Francisco’s Y-bike program – funded by the SFMTA – has been providing in-school bike education to middle and high school students since 2009, but has just begun expansion to elementary schools! The goal is to provide opportunities for San Francisco kids to get on a bike – perhaps for the first time – and learn the basics of safe biking. Check out this photo from the Presidio, where Spring Valley Elementary students learned practices that will guide their learning and decisions well beyond their childhood years.

A Safer Passage Between the Hills

People who ride a bike on the storied zigzag route through Duboce Triangle and the Lower Haight may have noticed that new safety upgrades on the Wiggle are complete. With enhancements such as bulbouts, raised crosswalks, a traffic diverter, landscaping and bike signals, the Wiggle will be a safer place for walking, biking and driving.

Eyes on the Street…Literally!

You may have noticed an increased number of SFPD officers citing for distracted driving. This is part of a series of six high-visibility enforcement events that are intended to not only dissuade drivers from operating phones while driving, but also to inform the public that ending distracted driving is a high priority for the city. It caught the attention of KRON reporter Stanley Roberts, who featured an enforcement event in a recent People Behaving Badly segment. Give it a watch and tell your friends to obey the law by not using their phones while driving!

A Safer SoMa

San Francisco Public Works recently celebrated the groundbreaking of the Second Street Improvement Project. The project, which occurs on the Vision Zero High-Injury Network, will make Second Street safer and more comfortable for all users by adding bicycle tracks, new street trees, and expanded crosswalks and pedestrian refuges. We are excited to see these changes take shape over the coming months!

Quicker Improvements for Increased Safety

Folsom and Howard Streets in SoMa are going to get much safer in the near-term with all kinds of much-needed improvements, such as increasing yellow zones for safer loading, adding boarding islands for safer Muni passengers, and adding red zones near crosswalks to improve the visibility. But perhaps the most visible to users of the street will be the parking-protected bike lane on Folsom that began construction last week. The lane will make biking safer on this heavily-traveled route and help us reach our goal of zero traffic deaths.
