San Francisco political columnist Phil Matier reports on the story of two gas station owners who used federal law to put San Francisco’s red transit only lane program on hold. While transportation planners tend to support the red lanes, arguing they make transit significantly more efficient, merchants, such as the gas station owners, argue that it reduces their business. The program remains on hold while city officials negotiate with federal officials about the program’s compliance with federal law.
