San Francisco Road Diet Watch: Cyclist, Pedestrian Safety Projects Put on Fast Track

The effort to separate people and cars on the crowded dangerous streets of San Francisco are on a new fast track. It’s about saving lives, proponents say.

Protected bike lanes in the South of Market district are on the table.

Cyclists say the protected bike lanes improve safety. Currently, on Howard Street, the lanes stop at Third Street. They don’t line the street all the way to the Embarcadero.
