Get rid of those lights. Hell, shut down the Castro crossings completely. It’s high time we break the automobile wheel of oppression forcing us to defer to large death machines.

This is outrageous. In order to meet our environmental goals, we should be encouraging MORE walkability, not less. It's unbelievable that we're making it harder for human beings to walk around Castro Street!

We should be encouraging alternative transportation. The only way to do that is to make it less easy to drive! No rational human is going to pick an alternative if the default (driving your own car) is the easier choice.

Keep these as stop signs for all cars! Give pedestrians the right of way at all times! It's such an easy, zero-cost solution to improving downtown.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
