Listen: San Francisco, Jeff Bell And Patty discussed on KCBS 24 Hour News
"City of San Francisco charge people want to drive down Lombard street. KCBS news anchors Jeff bell and petty rising spoke with our inside I fill material about what needs to happen next that we've talked about this idea before the city, San Francisco just can't go ahead and do this. Right. That's why the states involved they need permission to set up a toll lane or a toll road. But I tell you. This is so typically San Francisco they're going to get permission to possibly told people on the road because of the incredible amount of people that are driving America's crooked street. It's the turn into a nightmare per not just the people that live on the street, but for the blocks around because of traffic snarls backups, so they wanna way to regulate it and one of the ideas toll road, but charge people to do it. But mine is Patty, I've been checking with MTA and other people all day, and they still after years and years haven't figured out how they could do it even if they got permission. You're talking about the logistics of making that happen. Exactly what we're talking about. Here is an iconic street that is worldwide known and it attracts tourists from all over the world. So the ideas like how do you control it when I do? Okay. What we set up a toll booth we sort of a toll booth and a reservation system. So we have Jeff in your friends are in town, you book, Saturday morning at ten o'clock for to get go down Lombard street, and you pay you don't five or ten bucks for that. Well, you gotta have somebody manage it. You gotta have everybody up. I mean, how you gonna know that your time to go in. Then they said, okay. Well, maybe we could do it automatically with tech. And they said, well, no, then you have to what do you do about people that live on the street and people that are working let's say doing a repair job on the street or fringe visiting. They said, well, then we're going to put up a toll booth, and then they go. Well, then you gotta man the toll twenty four hours. They did a study on this years back. I spent a hundred ten thousand dollars trying to figure it out, and they all came up with the conclusion. Green state of figure out how to do it. They just can't figure out how to enact a toll. That's going to actually reduce backup is actually going to get people on and off the street, and they just have not been able to do it. Even after doing a couple of pilot programs are inside fill materials back tomorrow morning at seven fifty right here"
