Typical Morning Market Street Scrum

This troublesome stretch of Market between 8th and 9th Streets seems to be giving everyone a lot of trouble, and this morning was no different.  Everything is wrong with this picture.  For instance, a white pickup double-parked in the right lane, which wouldn’t be a problem except for the fact that the right lane needs to be used by cyclists because delivery vans and trucks are blocking the bike lane up ahead directly after the barrier ends.  And how did that sedan get across 9th?  Doesn’t look like Muni or a taxi to me.  Hrmph.

Maybe I”m just grouchy because of the weather, but it still is nice to see some justice once in a while.  Luckily, it’s Wednesday, which means Butterlap Day!  See you there probs!

    crossing Van Ness right before this area is hairy too, since the car lane and bike lane have to switch sides in the middle of the intersection . . . don’t know where they got this idea, some signage for the drivers would be great, sooner or later the confusion here is going to cause an accident . . . i see a lot of private vehicles blazing through the ‘no cars’ stretch of market, never seen anyone get stopped or get a ticket.
