Seniors to S.F.: Stop Killing Us!

San Francisco seniors are tired of being killed crossing streets — and understandably so. That's why on Wednesday they plan to do something about it. They're inviting the public to watch them attempt to cross a dangerous intersection on the way to a senior center without getting hit by speeding drivers.

“Too often, all the planning is done by looking at a piece of paper, and talking to people of like-minded experience, without planning for people with babies and strollers, or for the idea that a group of preschoolers may cross the street to get to a park, or that seniors may be on the way to a senior center,” says Bob Planthold, a member of the Senior Action Network.
