A pilot program that would charge drivers to go down San Francisco’s famed Lombard Street was approved on Thursday by California assemblymembers.
In addition to the toll, Assembly Bill 1605 51-18 would also make drivers reserve a spot before heading down the crookedest street in the world.
The new fee would also help pay for traffic officers to control the street.
City officials say crowd and traffic back-ups have become a safety problem for the neighborhood.
The bill now moves on to the Senate for consideration.
If approved by the Senate and signed by Governor Gavin Newsom, the city would be responsible for determining how much to charge and how to best implement the program.
