Join us March 26 to collect data on how fast drivers are really going
Volunteer to help conduct speed surveys around Cow Hollow
Last month, we hosted our first community speed survey on two dangerous streets: Oak Street (along the Panhandle) and Lincoln Avenue (in the Inner Sunset). Both streets are thoroughfares with a lot of traffic that people must cross to enter Golden Gate Park.
As part of Walk SF’s Slow Our Streets campaign in 2022 (and with your help), we’re going to collect speed data across the entire city.
Our next survey location is District 2 in the Cow Hollow neighborhood
Cow Hollow is home to dangerous streets like Franklin: a three-lane, one-way street with fast-moving traffic. In November, 30-year-old educator Andrew Zieman was killed on his way to Sherman Elementary School at Franklin and Union. This tragedy has highlighted the desperate need to do more to calm traffic around schools citywide.
The City is planning to bring short-term safety fixes to Franklin Street. We want to do speed surveys to see what’s really happening with speed on Franklin to shape our advocacy for strong improvements. We’re also going to Broadway and Pacific, two high-injury streets nearby that don’t yet have safety projects planned but badly need them.
Volunteers like you are invited to join us collecting speed data on Saturday, March 26 from 10:00AM – 12:00PM. (Limited to 21 participants.)
We’ll meet at Allyne Park near the corner of Green and Gough for a short training. Then groups of three will go to locations on Franklin, Gough, and Broadway to collect speed data.
We’ll provide everything needed – no prior knowledge or experience needed. This will involve standing for over 90 minutes, including approximately 20 minutes of walking along hilly streets. This event is completely outdoors.
