A petition against MTA’s anti-car policies

District5diary – excerpt

A petition from Eastern Neighborhoods United Front (ENUF):

San Francisco voters approved Prop E and the creation of SFMTA to do two things: fix the Muni and balance the Muni budget. Neither of these goals has been met.

San Francisco taxpayers have had enough of the parking policies enacted by the SFMTA. Making parking more difficult is not an acceptable method to control traffic congestion and finance Muni.

We do not trust a public transit agency that has no realistic vision of the streets of San Francisco, only plans for its budget, refuses to respond to the needs of the citizens who live and work here now, and piles on more public debt to finance a new controversial system before fixing the one the public relies on.

San Francisco needs a balanced, unbiased, public transportation agency that works for everyone.

I have created a petition to Mayor Lee and the Board of Supervisors that says:

As residents and taxpayers of San Francisco we believe that the SFMTA’s first and foremost responsibility is to improve MUNI and to make MUNI a more desirable means of transportation. It is not SFMTA’s job to make owning and driving a motor vehicle more expensive and difficult.

The SFMTA needs to be accountable to all the citizens of San Francisco. We need a balanced, unbiased municipal transportation policy.

We respectfully request that the Mayor and District Supervisors immediately stop the SFMTA from:

1. Installing new parking meters and extending the hours of enforcement
2. Enforcing Sunday parking meters
3. Increasing meter rates, fees and fines

Thanks to District 5 Diary for helping us spread the work about the survey and the petition to Stop SFMTA. This is an important district in the upcoming Supervisor election. Who will support the drivers in our fight with SFMTA?

I was in the Panhandle yesterday and noticed that there appear to be two bicycle paths through the park. Why would the SFMTA want to put bicycle paths on the major thoroughfares that are Fell and Oak when they already have existing paths that cyclists use? They still have to stop at the same corners as the cars either way, to allow cross to traffic to pass.

This is a complete waste of taxpayer dollars which only serves the purpose of slowing down traffic. Pick slow, level streets for the cycle paths.

  1. It is the SFMTA’s job to make owning and driving a motor vehicle more expensive and difficult, at least according to Democrat policy, which is radical, flat Earth, environmental regislation. Look up One Bay Area and UN Agenda 21 if you want to know the truth.

    Obama’s energy tzar even stated in a press release that he wants to increase gas prices to discourage people from driving. You are wasting your time petitioning life-term dictators who despise democracy. If you voted D down the line as your Democrat Denny’s picture menu told you to, YOU are responsible for this. I would laugh, but I grew up here, and I’m sad to see the Golden State turned into a fascist utopian Hell hole.

    The next step is stack and pack housing, which the Democrats call “the elimination of single family households” and “affordable housing.” Then, there’s the complete elimination of gas pumps and the coerced transition to electric vehicles, all on a power grid that is being choked by anti-nuclear/fossil fuel/hydro policy thanks to the EPA and your favorite Democrats. There’s also the 9 bill-, I mean 16 b-, I mean 32-infinity billion dollar “high speed rail” which is actually a low speed scam to be funded by other states who hate us already.
