SF redoubles efforts to curtail pedestrian death rate, highest in the country

View descriptionShare

Despite years of preventive measures, San Francisco still has the highest
pedestrian death rate in the nation, and is on track to break its unfortunate record
this year.

So now the City is going to try something new to slow cars down and
make the streets safer for people on foot.

This week the Municipal Transportation Agency approved a plan to install 33 “speed safety cameras,” as part of a pilot program made possible by a bill co-authored by State Assemblymember Phil Ting of San Francisco.

He’s also behind a bill to help expedite conversion of empty downtown office buildings into housing, to help revitalize the Financial District while also providing much-needed housing stock.

For more, KCBS Political Reporter Doug Sovern, is joined by by Assemblymember Phil Ting, Democrat from San Francisco.
