If you’re like me, you may use Panorama Drive to cut across the hill to get to Tower Market or Safeway or just onto Portola. We need to bear in mind that it is actually a residential neighborhood. Apparently people have been speeding, and residents have been complaining.
So the police are acting. Here’s from Captain Feeney in the Park Station newsletter:
Radar trailers have been deployed on Roosevelt and on Panorama in Midtown Terrace. Where there are radar trailers there will sometimes be officers with radar guns to enforce the speed limits in these areas. Do not assume that the trailer is out there for decoration and for us to say we have done something about improving traffic safety. We cannot be everywhere all of the time but when we are, beware! We will take enforcement action. We have received several complaints about these and other locations throughout the Park District and I assure you that we will address each of them at one time or another. Please slow down and be considerate of those who live on the street you drive on. If you or your friends drive on Roosevelt or Panorama, slow down or risk becoming a statistic.
One thought on “Beware Speeding on Panorama Drive”
Yeah, sure. I’ll believe it when I see it.
Drivers ignore stop signs at our intersections, (8th & Moraga and 9th & Moraga). My wife was rolled into by a car, and I’ve seen many other pedestrians almost hit. When we called the police to ask them to enforce stop signs, their reply was:
“What do you want us to do? We can’t monitor every four was stop in the city.”
I pointed out to them that by enforcing several on a random basis, word would spread and drivers would start obeying stop signs. They told me they were too busy.
Police in San Francisco don’t care! It is a sad thing to type, but I don’t have any evidence to the contrary.
