Following the death of a 30-year-old cyclist along Howard Street in San Francisco earlier this month, the city has made some changes to improve safety for cyclists.
However, bicycle advocates are saying those changes are not enough.
On Tuesday, a group of bike safety advocates rallied outside San Francisco City Hall asking the city to add more safe bicycle lanes across the city.
This comes after Tess Rothstein was struck and killed by a car back on Mar. 8.
Those who attended the rally hope the city can move quickly to improve safety for cyclists.
“We should not have to wait for more lives to be lost and the changes that the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition members are demanding go far beyond the extension of protected bike lanes for just one block. We need real citywide change, we need proactive, transformative change,” said a bicycle advocate.
Following Tuesday’s rally, a group went to the SF Transportation Board meeting to ask board members to move quickly to improve bicycle safety.
