About PSAC

It is in the public interest to officially recognize walking as an important component of our transportation system, and as a key component to creating livable and suitable communities. As Section 5.20 of the San Francisco Municipal Code Administrative Code states, the Board of Supervisors seeks to develop and implement focused policies that encourage pedestrian safety, education, and convenience in transportation and city planning.  The Pedestrian Safety Advisory Committee, composed of concerned and informed residents, was established to provide insight into issues concerning pedestrian safety, convenience, ambiance, and planning.

The objectives of the Pedestrian Safety Advisory Committee are as follows:
(Click to download PDF of complete PSAC Bylaws):

  • Make pedestrian safety recommendations to the Board of Supervisors and other City departments;
  • Develop concepts and review policies and planning efforts for pedestrians, such as safety, traffic calming, and sidewalk and crosswalk treatments;
  • Make recommendations on funding opportunities and priorities to the Board of Supervisors, the Municipal Transportation Agency, the Citizens Advisory Committee of the Transportation Authority, and other departments, commissions, boards and agencies;
  • Review and make recommendations to the Planning Commission on policies and programs related to pedestrians in the Master Plan of the City and County of San Francisco;
  • Report to the Board of Supervisors on an annual basis, with quarterly appearances before the Board as needed, on statistics on pedestrian injury and fatality statistics, causes of pedestrian injuries and fatalities, recommendations for changes in policies, funding and enforcement, and other pertinent issues;
  • Support development of the Better Streets Plan, in conjunction with City agencies and community input, which will offer a comprehensive review of the policies, procedures, practices and physical infrastructure of the City that affect pedestrians, and will also provide recommendations to make walking safer and more convenient through sidewalk improvements, new City policies, educational programs, promotional efforts and transit access.
