Doing the Wiggle and getting a ticket
I can almost sympathize with the cyclists ticketed on the Wiggle for running stop signs. For years City Hall and the Bicycle Coalition have been touting the Wiggle as a bike route to Market Street from this part of town. And the new bike lanes planned for the Panhandle are being sold as a quicker, more "comfortable" route to the Wiggle itself. Hence, cyclists assumed speeding through the lower Haight on the Wiggle is officially sanctioned, and they aren't wrong. The Wiggle problem is really evidence that people in the neighborhoods don't find cyclists as endearing as City Hall does.
