Keeping It Clean

This might be hard to believe, but a new study found that people walking in San Francisco had "generally positive perceptions of the cleanliness of the streets and sidewalks." Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz & Associates, an opinion research and public policy analysis firm, interviewed 841 random people at 56 locations in all 11 supervisorial districts in the city. So, what did people complain about? Not graffiti or fecal matter, like most people would assume. The most common complaints were about cigarette butts, trash, smells, grime and a generally dirty appearance. [SF Gate/photo via Ariel Dovas]
