The "improvements" at 9th and Division

From Rob Francis:

The SFMTA recently spent millions of dollars to create "improvements" to the 9th and Division street intersection. The results have been disastrous. 

Please take a moment to provide feedback to to the SFMTA through the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/9S6RSQ6

The street is more dangerous than before because cyclists are no longer required to stop at the intersection. Motorists and pedestrians must wait for cyclists to pass, and no one knows who has the right of way.

The "protected bike lanes" have backed up traffic to both the Bay Bridge and the 101/280 on-ramps. 

The newly created space in the streets is now attracting encampments in the intersection.

The SFTMA wants to roll this design out to the rest of the city. Please circulate this survey to your neighborhood groups.
