Leaders call for more protections after bicyclist died in SF crash

News

San Francisco city leaders are calling for more protections for bicyclists after a deadly crash on Friday morning near 6th and Howard Streets.

30-year-old Tess Rothstein from Berkeley was riding a Ford Go-Bike when a truck hit her.

Leaders of the pedestrian safety group “Walk San Francisco,” says five pedestrians and now one bicyclist have died on San Francisco streets in 2019.

“I mean this is a terrible, terrible tragedy on our streets and it just reinforces the need to do more, faster,” Mayor London Breed said.  

Mayor Breed announced on Wednesday she was fast-tracking traffic safety projects on the city’s high-injury areas. 

That includes increasing police traffic enforcement.
