At California and Gough, a corners trafficked by pedestrians enroute to the local grocery store (WholeFoods), the traffic light is not appropriately timed for some of the older pedestrian traffic. This is a request to lengthen the pedestrian crossing light timing.
1188 Fell St San Francisco, CA 94117 - Alamo Square
We who live in the western half of SF are forced to rely heavily on Fell & Oak Streets. Any blockage on those streets is both inconvenient and a safety hazard.
It seems that at least half the times I'm on Fell at Divis., there is a backup of stopped cars in the left lane, waiting to pull into the Arco gas station here. This is inappropriate anywhere, and dangerous on such a major artery.
I see two possible solutions:
1) Require the Arco station to redesign its layout so cars can wait on premises, not on the public street;
2) eliminate 3-5 parking spaces on the left side just before this station, to accommodate waiting traffic.
Enforcement would probably help too.
Lake Street And 8th Avenue - Inner Richmond
This is a heavily trafficked intersection (Lake St & 8th Ave.) of automobiles and pedestrians. It's popular to cross due to it's destination. It provides direct access to the dog park. Everyone, mostly adults with children and/or dogs, struggle to cross this intersection. Daily, it is especially worse during commute hours, cars speed and rarely make the effort to stop or slow down for pedestrians. Please, I/we request 2 additional stop signs to make this a 4-way stop and an easier and safer intersection to cross.
69-71 29th St San Francisco, CA 94110, USA - Bernal Heights
This is a dangerous intersection for pedestrians, bicyclists and cars alike. Tiffany meets 29th at an angle making for difficult sightlines for proceeding onto 29th Street. In addition there is an entry drive to the Safeway parking lot across the street and is a popular pedestrian crossing spot (no crosswalks). Lastly Tiffany is a popular bike route and joins Valencia to San Jose so had heavy bike traffic. This intersection should have a 4-way stop (including the Safeway driveway).
695 Brannan St San Francisco, CA 94107 - South Of Market
Drivers turning right off the 280 off-ramp cannot see pedestrians crossing Brannan St to the NW, due to traffic light boxes. Drivers also are looking to the left to see if they have a break in traffic and not far to the right for pedestrians. I've seen multiple near-misses on this crossing.
1310 Lombard St San Francisco, CA 94109 - Russian Hill
Tourists waiting to drive down the Crooked Street pull into the intersection even when there is no room for them to start up the hill due to other cars. This leaves Polk St. blocked to cross traffic, and makes it extremely difficult for cars, bikes, and pedestrians to navigate this intersection safely.
Brotherhood Way San Francisco, CA 94132 - Ocean View
Segamore St. has 3 lanes in each direction. Only one lane merges onto the 2 west-bound lanes of Brotherhood Way. The entrance to Brotherhood Way can support a 2-lane merge from Segamore. During high traffic periods, the backup on Segamore is long and people drive crazy, speed, and make illegal lane changes to get in the far right lane at the last minute. An additional merge lane onto Brotherhood Way would make the merge much safer and faster.
4th Street And Townsend Street San Francisco, CA - Mission Bay
Please do something about this intersection! It is a lawsuit waiting to happen. Buses, Taxis, Giants Fans, Cars, Bikes, attempting to co-exist despite poor signage, confusing traffic lights, and zero enforcement of traffic laws. I see this issue has been reported repeatedly for several years via SeeClickFix and nothing has been done. Why is it I see police officers daily taking a break at Philz but I've never seen any official enforcing traffic laws at this intersection? Since the local government appears to be ignoring this issue, perhaps working with the media and/or the legal system is the only way to make this intersection safe for residents and visitors.
307 Oak St San Francisco, CA 94102 - Western Addition
Cars traveling east on Oak don't have enough advance warning about which lanes to be in or not be in if they want to continue straight or turn onto Octavia. There is not enough signage to deter cars from turning illegally on red. "Local lanes" cause accidents because there is no indication about how to treat the stop signs in addition to the traffic lights and merging/turning cars from the center lanes. CARS HONK 24 HOURS A DAY.
16th Street And Castro San Francisco, CA 94114, USA - Castro-Upper Market
Cars run these stop signs all the time. Nobody signals. Nobody looks. Cars coming up 16th just barrel through, and cars on Castro barely stop. It's a madhouse with large amounts of traffic throughout the day, weekdays and weekends. Pedestrians take their lives in their hands trying to cross. This is a major intersection that desperately needs a traffic light.
