SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— On Tuesday, San Francisco tallied another pedestrian who was struck by a car and killed, this time in the city’s Sunset District. Just as that collision occurred, a San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency was meeting on pedestrian and bicyclist safety was underway in another part of town.
The agency adopted the SFMTA Board of Director-approved Vision Zero Policy to eliminate pedestrian and cyclist fatalities within a decade.
“People shouldn’t be getting hurt, let alone killed on our streets,” said San Francisco Director of Transportation Ed Reiskin.
The policy has three elements, which include; enforcement, education and engineering.
