I want
in San Francisco.

What it need is at least more good basic pedestrian lighting. So that, that area does not look like it is always unsafe to be at. Even when people are not there waiting for train. There might be some people that walk through that area for what ever reason. Also at lest some cheaper basic décor or style for the area. IF that can fit into the budget.

Homeless Outreach Day
Friday, September 11, 2015, 12:00pm - 5pm
See link for details

If you want to meet homeless neighbors and learn what we've been up to with @HandUp, join us for #‎SF Homeless Outreach Day on Sept 11th! We are bringing together leaders at the city, nonprofit partners and community members to share more about homelessness in SF, approaches that are working, and ways you can engage that make a difference. Life on the streets and in shelters can be incredibly isolating, so this is a great way to show our compassion and humanity.

Come out and share with friends! Sign ups here: sfoutreachday.org/take-action/

Or donate to the San Francisco Fund here: handup.org/funds/thesffund

Just fyi...I got this reply August 25...hopefully, we will notice a difference...but, numbers count, i.e., I expect they don't do much if only 1 or 2 people complain or if people stop complaining, i.e., give up.

Nurit,

Thank you for your email. This is a common complaint. When Officers observe a motorcycle with a loud muffler, when possible, they issue a citation. I have also recently reached out to the Traffic Company and asked that the motorcycle officers assist us in enforcing this violation.

I agree Nurit - it will take an intervention that captures the Board of Supervisors attention ... or some definitive data on how dangerous these sounds can be to children. SFPD simply enforces the laws. We most likely need a new law, or higher penalty on the current law.
