|From the SF Examiner|
More than two years ago I posted about the SF Examiner story (SF's goal of taking its cars off the road hits speed bump) about how city departments were complying---or failing to comply---with a 2010 ordinance that required reducing the use of city cars by 20% by 2015.
Back on April 29 I asked the Department of the Environment, which is supposed to enforce the ordinance, a simple question: "Do you folks have an update on the information in this graphic from the SF Examiner in 2013?"
Still waiting for an answer. Apparently I'll have to take it to the Sunshine Ordinance Task Force to help me get an answer.
For years the city has been preying on people who drive in San Francisco, and parking tickets, parking meters, and parking garages are a major source of revenue for the city. At the same time, it's been redesigning city streets on behalf of a small minority of cyclists, encouraging city residents to abandon those wicked motor vehicles and take up cycling or ride a chronically underfunded Muni system.
Doesn't seem like too much to ask that city departments follow city policy and, while they're at it, obey the law.
Note that the SFMTA is the biggest offender.
