Lake Street in San Francisco should never be an Uber raceway again. As part of SFMTA’s response to the covid crisis and the need for San Franciscan’s to have access to safe & healthy outdoor recreation, the 29 blocks of Lake between Arguello and 28th Avenue have been made into a Slow Street. Slow Streets are streets that are open for walking, running, wheeling, biking and playing. Cars are 2nd class citizens on these streets. It is illegal for though-car traffic to use this street, while residents can still enter and exit their garages (and parking is still there). Cars may only travel the street for under one block and only to reach a destination on that block.

Residents of the Richmond District are now enjoying their neighborhood more than ever.
