San Francisco Moves Toward Banning Cars

Posted by Dave Blount at February 26, 2009 10:04 AM

Back in the Carter era, ultra-left punk rock loudmouth Jello Biafra ran for Mayor of San Francisco. His platform included forcing businessmen to wear clown suits and banning cars within the city. The latter policy may soon be enacted:

San Francisco officials are considering limits on when and where private cars can drive on Market Street in an effort to make the thoroughfare faster for buses and safer for pedestrians and bicyclists.

But that's just Market Street, you say. Don't forget, the liberal agenda is so outrageous, it can only be imposed in increments.

"There's a growing momentum to restrict cars, but it will probably be done in baby steps," said Supervisor Chris Daly, the chief proponent at City Hall of a car-free Market Street.

The negative effects on business are obvious, but countering that is the "growing awareness [among lunatic ideologues] of how cars aggravate global warming."

Why not just get it over with all at once and put Jello Biafra in charge?

He couldn't be worse than Newsom — or Obama.
