Vision Zero Watch: San Francisco sees ‘significant uptick’ in pedestrian, cyclist fatalities

All three of the deadly intersections have been identified as high-injury corridors under the city’s Vision Zero plan, which aims to eliminate traffic fatalities by 2024.

In response to Montes’ death, Tumlin said the SFMTA is planning to make changes at Dwight and San Bruno, which he describes as an “odd, offset intersection.” They include improving signage, refreshing some of the red zones, extending the daylight areas and retiming the signals.

The agency is also conducting an evaluation of Jerrold Avenue and Bayshore Boulevard, the site of Sunday’s hit-and-run.

“A lot can be done quickly to prevent crashes using simple paint and posts,” said Jodie Medeiros, executive director of pedestrian advocacy organization Walk San Francisco. “People who live, work, and walk near highways face serious safety and health risks.”
