What’s the cost of rush hour? Well, it turns out, a lot. Traffic jams cause over $700 in personal loses per driver per year, and the average commuter is stuck in traffic over 30 hours ever year. Ouch. This infographic from NationWide Insurance shows us all these gloomy sats and more. 37.7749295 -122.41941550000001
Great Streets Vision
San Francisco’s streets should attract people of all kinds to its network of great places connected by excellent sidewalks, bikeways and public transportation. Streets should be compelling public spaces that build community, the foundation of thriving shopping and welcoming to even the most vulnerable users. They should be balanced, providing multi-modal mobility, with priority given to people on foot, bicycles and public transportation. A successful network of places will return SF’s streets to their rightful place as the center of civic life, making SF a great place to live, do business and visit.
