10 neighbors want all drivers to take SF Bike Coalition Quiz before getting their license in San Francisco.

Suggested by Hunter Franks
The SF Bike Coalition works with soon to be taxi's drivers in SF to teach them how to share the road. Taxi drivers are our litmus paper of the road - if they honk, we all honk. if they smile and drive calmly and share the road, we all do. (well, you know).

They have a great class and quiz that taxi drivers are required to take before getting their permit. things like how to pull over to the curb safely if you have to enter bike lane, other considerations that help bikers and cars share the road effectively.

Let's make this mandatory at the DMV for all Drivers trying to renew or get their license. I know there are 'some bike questions' on the written test, but we can improve these and if any city should, it's SF!

The Tenderloin, San Francisco

• Turk & Leavenworth Streets

4 Corner Friday is a community-building event to strengthen relationships among neighbors in the Tenderloin: residents, families, children, businesses, organizations, housed and unhoused.

4 Corner Friday is a project of Golden Gate Avenue Block Safety Group, an informal coalition of organizational stakeholders along Golden Gate Avenue and Leavenworth Street that meets to discuss street level community safety needs and how we can improve address them collectively.

For this event, the Golden Gate Group has partnered with Tenderloin Health Improvement Project, a collective impact project led by the Saint Francis Foundation.

Come plant a seed, listen to some youth read their poetry, draw your own pictures on the sidewalk with chalk, pick up information about services, organizations and businesses in the area—all during a time and a place where the open air drug market in the Tenderloin can be at its worst. Help us take back the TL for all those who live and work here, housed and unhoused.

For more information, contact Mike Anderer at michael_anderer@demarillac.org.

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.
