San Francisco Fell & Masonic. Motorists turning left from Fell onto Masonic cross the Panhandle Path crosswalk and collisions with bicyclists are almost routine. City attorneys in San Francisco persuaded Judge Peter Busch to make an exception in his injunction against bicycle projects for intersection improvements at Fell and Masonic in the City. Work can now proceed to improve the intersections so the crosswalk will have its own green cycle, and left turners must wait for a green turn arrow. More at SFist and San Francisco Bicycle Coalition.
