In 2004, SFBC volunteers spent a season guarding bicyclists and pedestrians crossing the dangerous Fell/Masonic intersection
SFBC and Walk SF revitalize Fell/Masonic Crossing Guard Program
In 2007, after literally years of asking the City to design and implement solutions at the notorious Fell/Masonic intersection, we partnered with Walk SF after several collisions during the last part of June to raise awareness about the dangers of the intersection and to make sure non-motorized traffic made it across Masonic safely.
You can read more about the Crossing Guard Program in the Bay Guardian and the SF Examiner.
In response to the collisions and the Crossing Guard program, Supervisor Mirkirimi introduced a Resolution calling for a separate protected bike/pedestrian crossing light phase and a separate left-turn light phase for vehicles. The Resolution passed the Board of Supervisors unanimously on July 10, 2007. You can read the Resolution here.
