LETTER TO THE EDITOR – SAN FRANCISCO RICHMOND REVIEW
The overwhelming Victory of Proposition J and the crushing defeat of Proposition I should have sent a message to the motorists and their followers who howled incessantly to put this issue to a vote of The People.
Funded by Dede Wilsey and The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco to the tune of 800K the motorists got their Vote.
There can be no doubt about the Result.
The People want car free areas in San Francisco.
It is sad and all too predictable that the Losers in this Vote by The People refuse to accept the result and continue to push their campaign to drive anywhere anytime.
The motorists want to further limit the car free time on The Great Walkway and continue to argue that The Great Walkway should not be car free beginning on Fridays at noon.
The motorists purposefully have forgotten already that Proposition I, their call to bring cars back to The Great Walkway, was crushed. Sixty-five percent of The People voted NO.
Equally disturbing is the motorists latest war on Slow Streets.
Like barnacles hanging to a collapsing pier the motorists have attached themselves to Slow Streets Cabrillo and 23rd Avenue as an assault on their hegemony in another attempt to thwart the will of The People.
The SFMTA, in a mind-numbing decision, has voted to cut by half the number of Slow Streets despite the election results.
This sense of Entitlement by the motorists is reprehensible and will be firmly rejected.
