  1. There used to be cars in San Francisco quite a while back. Haven’t you ever seen the Streets of San Francisco or the movie Dirty Harry? There were lots of cars in both of those shows that are now close to 50 years old. What there didn’t used to be was lots of people riding bikes in heavy urban traffic, nor e-scooters, etc. Back then most everyone went shopping at real brick & mortar stores rather than ordering everything online, nor was there much overnight shipping either, which cut way down on the number of delivery trucks on city streets too.

    On the other hand, here is an urban downhill race that is sanctioned every year and does cause its share of injuries. This was the winning ride.

  2. “For the last three years, skateboarders have reclaimed what has been lost to the influence of tech companies if just for one summer afternoon.”

    The fuck does that even mean? Reclaimed Dolores Street from what … cars? Now you’re blaming tech companies for there being cars on the roads?

    • Ubers, Lyfts Ford Bikes, Lime scooters, Byrds, and of course the Boosted boards. I’m obviously not blaming tech companies for all vehicles on the road. But to have this area void of the nuisances listed above is a dream!

        • Skateboarders look at Boosted Boards and think they have to compare them to their own sport. I’m not a skater, and I don’t claim to be. Why do you care if Boosted Board riders have to use their brakes to stop? So do most vehicles.
