216 Octavia St San Francisco, CA 94102
There are way too many traffic lights on Octavia between Oak and Market. Drivers can't turn off Octavia onto most of these streets anyway, so there's little point in the traffic lights.
Stop signs on the east-west streets, plus yield signs on Octavia, would meet the needs of occasional east-west traffic (is there even any such traffic?) much more efficiently.
So many lights so close together serves no real purpose except to create a bottleneck.
Lights at Fell, Oak, and Market are sufficient here. Let's eliminate the others, please.
Thanks.· Reported by Peter · Flag Flagged
307 Oak St San Francisco, CA 94102Cars traveling east on Oak don't have enough advance warning about which lanes to be in or not be in if they want to continue straight or turn onto Octavia. There is not enough signage to deter cars from turning illegally on red. "Local lanes" cause accidents because there is no indication about how to treat the stop signs in addition to the traffic lights and merging/turning cars from the center lanes. CARS HONK 24 HOURS A DAY.· Reported by Jake · Flag Flagged
Van Ness Ave San Francisco, CA
When driving in either direction on Van Ness between Lombard and the Freeway ramp, one cannot help it notice that the traffic lights are really poorly coordinated.
This leads to massive delays and inefficiencies. If you're driving at speed limit you should never have to stop once you entered Van Ness.
Instead, there is a penalty for driving at speed limit. One actually needs to speed to make better use of green lights.
For the sake of everyone's time AND the environment, the lights need to be coordinated to be green all the way through if you're driving at speed limit.
This is the REAL VAN NESS AVENUE GREENING initiative.· Reported by Felix · Flag Flagged
