Read more about the rally via Bay City Beacon and Kron4. As well as SF Chronicle’s opinion piece, “rebuilding cities for people, not cars.” At TLCBD we are also pushing for changes to dangerous intersections, including more pedestrian scrambles; plus education and escorting following these changes.
