|Fix it, hell yes! But change it in any way? Efff no!|
Bike and walk nuts have been complaining about the Masonic Freeway for years, as it provides a gratuitous single vehicle drive that the likes of San Francisco has never seen. With its luxurious 3 lane roadways and lack of pedestrian amenities, you can blast through this corridor in seconds flat! So now, of course, Fix Masonic people want to remove this Freeway from their neighborhood. Well, the good people at "Save Masonic" have a better way of fixing the freeway and avoiding certain doom, without even changing it!
They suggest the following to remedy any issues anyone has been having with this freeway.
"More trees can be planted along the sidewalk, lighting can be improved and bus shelters added"
This kind of solution would only cost about 500 dollars. All road scientists know that more trees on the sidewalk make everything more better.
|This crash involving two speeding cars would have been averted had there been more trees on Masonic's sidewalk.|
|Where are all the lights? This could have been avoided!|
Since the Masonic Freeway sends a ton of single rider vehicles through every day, it makes sense to dedicate a lane for residents who don't want to park in their garages. With real estate soaring as fast as a Masonic commuter, these garages serve a critical need for storage lockers. People can then park in front of their garage with ease. Leave street car lockers alone, Fix Masonic!
|Vehicles on the left will have to stop blocking their garages and actually park in them. Also, ignore that crash it will be fixed with lighting and trees.|
|Clean this shit up and park in here? Are you kidding me Fix Masonic?!|
|It's so simple! It's like Rube Goldberg created a route just for you!|
So there you have it, a complete fix without having to do much changing at all! Sure, maybe a couple people have been maimed and killed on this freeway, but if someone was on top of a building plucking off a couple people each year, would anyone really try to find the cause and stop it? Of course not, you idiot. Hats off, Save Masonic folks, you nailed it!
