Aug 2, 2013 Hearing: Speed Controls on Warren Drive

July 29, 2013

CORRECTION: AUGUST 2, 2013 at 10 A.M.!

Drunken CarWe’re nearly there on the speed bumps for Warren Drive!  The majority of the neighbors voted for it. This means it’s going on to the next stage, a public hearing.  That’s on August 2nd 3rd at 10 a.m. in Room 416 at City Hall.

What they’re proposing to install are ‘speed cushions.’ Those are even better than speed bumps, being gentler and less noisy. They are “lower and wider” than the usual speed-bumps, and have indentations so buses can pass by without bumping.  (I’ve driven over these things elsewhere, and they really do slow you down without axle-wrecking bumps.)

As many readers know, neighbor Beverly Mack has been working since 2008 to get traffic improvements on Warren Drive, which sometimes becomes a dangerous speed track. Now she – and the neighborhood – need your support to get it done. Please attend if you can, and send a letter (or email) in support if you can’t to Dan.Provence@sfmta.com.

These things could save lives.
