Not long ago, well-intentioned yet completely clueless city planning folks changed the traffic flow on Market to force drivers to turn right on 10th St. rather than continue to cause congestion problems while attempting to turn on the ill-suited 8th St. However, this unfortunately put the squeeze on bicycle commuters as they tried to navigate the narrow, somewhat dangerous bike lane bestowed upon them. It seemed a lot of valuable space was wasted, being used as an unnecessary “buffer zone.”
Fortunately, logic has prevailed and the buffer zone is history, replaced by a wider, safer bike lane. Cyclists win! How often does that happen in San Francisco?
