This week, the SFMTA, San Francisco Police Department, and Transport Workers Union 250A teamed up to launch a safety campaign for cable cars. New signs on cars throughout the city read “Do Not Pass Cable Cars,” warning residents that “it is illegal to pass a cable car, and they are partnering with San Francisco police to boost law enforcement presence on cable car lines, asking drivers to obey the signs under threat of a $238 ticket.”

“Basically, the city is saying enough is enough,” said Edward Reiskin, Muni’s director of transportation. “People shouldn’t be dying in our streets, people shouldn’t be getting seriously injured in our streets just trying to get around town, and that extends to our own employees and the people who ride the cable cars.” View the full article.
