A Toll And Reservation System For SF's Lombard Street Could Be In The Works

You may soon have to pay a fee to drive down San Francisco's world-famous crooked street. Yes, we are talking about Lombard Street in San Francisco.

And not only would you need to pay a toll, but in some cases, you might need to make a reservation!

Assemblyman Phil Ting wrote the measure (that will be introduced on Monday) and says the crowds and traffic congestion has become a safety issue for the neighborhood.

Residents are fed up with the crowds and have been calling for years for officials to address the traffic jams, trash and trespassing by visitors.

Tourism officials estimate that 6,000 people per day visit the 600-foot-long street in the summer months, creating lines of waiting cars that stretch for blocks.
