Tourists (Potentially) Be Banned

New, 11 comments

Some residents of North Beach are so fed up with large sightseeing buses driving through their neighborhood that they want them banned. The SFMTA has recommended "barring any commercial vehicle that carries more than nine people (including the driver) from traveling down certain streets in North Beach," reports the SF Examiner. "They've become a huge nuisance," said Chuck Thomas, a member of the North Beach Neighbors. "I have friends who go out to eat on their deck and they're staring straight at a double-decker packed with tourists. These things are loud, dirty and they invade our privacy."
