The latest proposed boondoggle is to ban right-hand turns from Broadway onto the major arterials of Pike and Pine streets.

The SDOT is trying to mitigate the damage it did — and improve streetcar ridership numbers that it wildly overestimated — when it put a dedicated bike lane next to a parking lane next to streetcar tracks on top of a major arterial next to a sidewalk used by bicyclists who ignore the little-used bike lane.
