Speaking of pedestrian safety, Mayor Ed Lee announced plans to finally deal with the growing problem. Next month, he'll launch a public awareness campaign called “Be Nice, Look Twice.”

"By looking out for each other and by driving more slowly and carefully, we can make a big impact on improving safety for those walking in San Francisco," Lee said. The mayor also proposes efforts to better educate drivers of trucks and construction vehicles by 2015.
Another measure will involve police increasing traffic enforcement at 50 of the most dangerous intersections. Lee noted The City has received $2.9 million in federal funding that will pay for safety improvements on South Van Ness Avenue and Polk Street, with work beginning in 2017.
