How would you go about proposing an idea like this? Does the City of San Francisco have any authority over that sorta thing, or is it all the State of California?
Love this idea Jane ... how about the reverse as well? When I ask taxi drivers what's the most important issue to solve for them, they say educating bikers about the rules of the road. A lot of expert bikers ignore the fact that they're supposed to observe many of the same rules as cars.
This is a great idea Jane. Along the same line of thinking, folks from the SFBC had an idea a while ago to require all people applying for a license to get a "transportation license" as supposed to just a drivers license. This way people would learn all the rules of all forms of transit - how to take the bus, use bike hand signals, etc etc. This would help promote learning about all forms of transportation, increasing people's awareness and confidence of how to safely and effectively take the bus, bike, etc.
