UPDATE 1:00 PM: SFMTA has quickly replaced the signs at many of the affected intersections.
Last night at about 4:00 AM, in an act of systematic and wanton destruction, an unknown person cut down nearly every SFMTA Slow Streets sign that had been erected on Hearst Avenue over the preceding few days. Apparently using a power tool, 33 of the 36 newly installed signs were cut off at the base. Every one of the seven intersections on Hearst Ave. were impacted: Baden St., Congo St., Detroit, St., Edna St., Foerster St., Gennessee St., and Ridgewood Ave.
SFMTA has already begun to repair the damage done, and residents at the intersections with surveillance cameras are reviewing their record of the incident. The incident has been reported to SFMTA and Ingleside Police Station.
If you have information that can assist in identifying the perpetrator, contact Ingleside Police Station (415) 404-4000 or SFMTA Slow Streets at email@example.com .
