Senior pedestrian advocates hold press conference on dangerous city streets 

Senior and disabled activists will hold a press conference Wednesday to highlight structural design flaws for pedestrians on San Francisco streets.

The event will highlight the particular dangers that face senior citizens — who are three times more likely to die in a traffic accident than walkers under the age of 65.

Representatives from the Senior Action Network, the San Francisco Police Department and the George Davis Senior Center will hold the conference at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday. The meeting will take place at Third and Yosemite streets — an intersection that advocates say is particularly dangerous for seniors.
