Parking

Letter to the Editor

Editor:

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

that intersection, the job was also pretty

sloppily done, with quite a spill of red

marking paint.
