San Francisco Bicycle Coalition

How safe is it to walk or cycle in San Francisco?  Last year, the city adopted Vision Zero, a policy designed to eliminate all traffic deaths and severe injuries by 2024.  Host Joseph Pace speaks with members of the coalition behind Vision Zero about what progress has been made toward that ambitious goal in the year since its adoption.

San Francisco is a bike-friendly city, despite its famous hills. There are designated bike lanes on streets throughout town, and the number of riders increases annually. In fact, there’s been a nearly 100% increase in cycling between 2006 – the first year numbers were tracked – and 2013. That means right now, well over 8,000 men, women, and children are pedaling around town.
