As we just discussed, please see my email regarding concerns about the traffic circle at Parker and Euclid. Any help in bringing attention and resolution to the problem is greatly appreciated.
Jamie Parks, SFMTA:
I am writing to you to see what can be done about the traffic circle at the intersection of Parker and Euclid in the Jordan Park neighborhood. It is unsafe for pedestrians and cars. Speak with anyone in this neighborhood and they will confirm that many car accidents have occurred, especially in the late night hours. One of my neighbors had his car totaled when it was parked at the NW corner of Parker/Euclid.
The circle does not have good visibility at night since there are no reflective devices to make it obvious. Cars typically do not stop nor yield to pedestrian crossing there at any time. Could a traffic light or flashing red lights be installed to resolve the issue? Or, better yet, the circle should be removed altogether.
Many of us have contacted the SFMTA, SFPD and Supervisor Stefani about this issue with no response.
Any response and attention to this matter is greatly appreciated.
