San Francisco's Lombard Street May Begin Charging


San Francisco's famous crooked street may begin charging people to drive the twists and turns. Tourists could soon pay as much as $10, the San Francisco board of supervisors voted unanimously on Tuesday. The plan is in an effort to cut down on traffic congestion and reduce crowds.

"We must implement a system that enables both residents and visitors to enjoy the 'Crookedest Street in the World,'" said Assemblyman Phil Ting, who authored the legislation.
