Most dangerous intersection

I have witnessed cars in the wrong lane so frequently here, that I cannot believe there are not more accidents. This was the fourth or fifth time I have seen this behavior. It happens day and night, regardless of the sun. It seems that the solid white line of the line that separate the facing traffic lane.
On closer inspection, it appears that for some reason, there are broken white lines at the East end of the block along the bike path. The yellow lines separating the two facing lanes are fairly widely spaced apart. That might be the problem. Will try to get some new photos tomorrow to add to this article. Maybe we just need a new paint job to fix the problem.

  1. Sadly, this is the same type of bad science that is driving City Halls convoluted and poorly designed transportation policies. City transportation officials say San Francisco has put more roads on a diet than anywhere else in North America. What was the result of the SFMTA’s traffic calming and road diets? Well, last year Muni’s on-time performance fell to its lowest numbers in history leaving passengers stranded, or waiting over 40% of the time.

    San Francisco has developed an urban plan around the loud but short-sighted desires of 12,000 people in our population of 800,000.
