The Sidewalk Bicyclists of Van Ness Avenue
Being a pedestrian on Van Ness Avenue is terrifying enough dodging bad automobile drivers while crossing streets, but lately the real danger has come from bicyclists speeding up and down the sidewalks.
The San Francisco Police Department could care less and yelling at the bicyclists doesn't seem to do much good, so I am going to start a monthly Sidewalk Bicyclist Hall of Shame as a simple form of anger management.
It's particularly irritating being narrowly missed by a bicyclist who is decked out in full safety gear, including a helmet. "Glad you're feeling safe, you jerk. I'm not."
