Closure of the Upper Great Highway, at all, is idiotic. But if a so-called “compromise” must be imposed, who came up with the idea of closing at noon on Fridays?
Anyone with half a brain realizes that the status of this roadway, as well as that of JFK Drive, should be up to the voters of San Francisco, who reside here and pay taxes here and try to get around here as best they can.
Between the Upper Great Highway and JFK Drive, how is a Sunset resident (or anybody south of Golden Gate Park) supposed to get to the Richmond District (or anywhere north of the park), or vice versa? Don’t be asinine enough to say Chain of Lakes Drive. Just what brilliant planning would come up with that as an alternative “thoroughfare?” It’s narrow and curvy, but who cares if there are more vehicular accidents/injuries/deaths as long as the bicyclists can do whatever they want, any time they want to do it, to the exclusion of whomever they don’t want to share with.
And who are the cronies of the Bicycle Coalition anyway? Not only is it obvious, but it’s pathetic beyond belief.
