I previously covered a story about Chris Bucchere's fatal bicycle vs. pedestrian accident last year, and now feel inclined to comment again. Mr. Bucchere, 36 years old, is now ordered to stand trial on a felony vehicular manslaughter charge for this fatality which occured in the Castro district of San Francisco while he was riding through the intersection on his bicycle purportedly at 35 m.p.h. in a 25 m.p.h. zone.
This is not the first time I've written about the dangers of the San Francisco Cable Car. The statistics for accidents and costs to the city of San Francisco are staggering. We have to ask, 'Is it worth it to keep this antique and nostalgic form of transportation available to the masses of tourists and San Francisco locals?'
After being elected into office November 2012, two new Supervisors London Breed and Norman Yee geared up to talk about the importance of San Francisco transportation and pedestrian safety in their neighborhoods.
I join the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition (SFBC) in their hard-fought attempt to increase the awareness of Mayor Lee and those responsible for the safety of our San Francisco streets about the urgent need for better bicycle safety on Market Street.
As a San Francisco Brain Injury Attorney, I like to stay up to date on the latest research on brain injury and recovery, specifically concussions and Tramatic Brain Injury. This not only helps me, but also my clients who too benefit from the up-to-date information on brain injury topics.
Napa doctors have expressed concern about the rise in Napa County bicycle accident injuries and deaths. As a Bay Area cyclist, I love to ride in the Wine Country. You can find great roads, great hills if you want them and great long level rides if that suits you.
As a San Francisco Bus Accident and Cable Car Accident Attorney, I do my best to help those injured in cable car crashes in our City by the Bay. Tourists and locals alike ride the San Francisco Cable Car, not for its speed (9 miles per hour), but for open air, convenience or nostalgia.
It would appear that the corner of Octavia and Market has become my favorite intersection to write about in San Francisco. Why? Because it is the City's most dangerous intersection, at least for bicyclists. I am happy to finally report that a red light camera will be installed at Octavia and Market soon, which will hopefully decrease bicycle and pedestrian injuries.
Otherwise known as The Intersection from Biking Hell, too many bike accidents at Market Street and Octavia Blvd have given this dangerous San Francisco intersection its name. I've written about this intersection before and now this intersection has reached its third year as the top dangerous intersection for bicycle wrecks in San Francisco. Since the boulevard opened in 2005, there have been 56 crashes with injuries at Octavia and Market. Four of the bicycle accidents on Octavia have been fatal accidents, according to the California Highway Patrol and news reports.
