Being green is saving on carbon footprint.

Walking and bicycling are the best ways to help our environment and prevent even more pollution in our ever growing city.

We are delighted to hear that the city is ready to invest $17 Million in the next five years for Pedestrian Safety Projects at 170 Locations to make our city more walkable and safe.

This will indeed encourage many to walk through the beautiful streets of San Francisco.

Mayor Edwin M. Lee joined by the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) and other City agencies announced a data-driven action plan and map to increase safety for people walking in San Francisco through targeted pedestrian capital improvement projects, education and enforcement.

A pedestrian awareness campaign that is now rolling out Citywide, encouraging road users to slow down and pay more attention to their surroundings was also unveiled.

Any pedestrian death or serious injury is one too many,” said Mayor Lee.

As we focus and invest in pedestrian safety improvement projects identified through the WalkFirst initiative to reduce serious pedestrian injuries and fatalities, we better prepare for the future as our City grows. San Francisco remains one of the most walkable cities in the world, and we all have a shared responsibility to protect and care for pedestrians. By looking out for each other and by driving more slowly and carefully, we can make a big difference in improving safety for people walking in San Francisco,” Lee adds.

WalkFirst represents the City’s effort to improve pedestrian safety where it is most needed,” said Board President David Chiu. “Given our City’s density, high impact and cost-effective approaches are necessary to make San Francisco safer and even more walkable.”
