Two San Francisco supervisors have proposed creating a designated parking site for people who live in their cars. Supervisors Ahsha Safai and Vallie Brown have suggested a site close to Balboa Park Bart station that would accommodate up to 33 vehicles for stays of up to 90 days. The site would offer bathrooms, security, and access to social services. We discuss the plan.

Ahsha Safai, District 11 supervisor, San Francisco Board of Supervisors
