The SF Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) has quietly been adding angled
parking near businesses in the Outer Sunset District.
It sounds like a good idea to increase parking availability
around a high traffic area, but the SFMTA did not resize the sidewalks.
As a result, the size of the roadway is much diminished, to the point of
forcing an alternative one-way on a two-way street. This is of course unexpected, and
not marked by any signage.
A car traveling on Judah Street and turning onto 26th Avenue in the
southbound direction can come face to face with a car going northbound without
any warnings, because of the cars (and large pickup trucks) impeding
visibility of any oncoming traffic. And at
that intersection, the job was also pretty
sloppily done, with quite a spill of red
