Streetsblog quotes Mike Sallaberry
“We determined it [left turn signal] has a great ‘bang for the buck’ value on improving safety and bicycle flow on a heavily used crosstown route,” said Mike Sallaberry of the SFMTA Sustainable Streets Division.
Anyone familiar with the Scott/Fell intersection knows that cyclists now make a left turn on the red light onto the bike lane on Fell Street, which means that Sallaberry is not only not getting city taxpayers a "great bang for the buck" but he's wasting money with this foolishness.
Recall that Sallaberry was the MTA official who failed to sell my neighborhood on the wisdom of taking away street parking on Divisadero to create a transit lane for the #24 Divisadero bus during commute hours.
