(El español en la parte de abajo)

Our neighbors want to live with no risk of traffic violence from drivers on our streets.

Since 2004, the sales team at the Audi San Francisco (300 S Van Ness, 94103) dealership have been abusing our public space, making our neighborhood more dangerous and more unpleasant. They are a clear example of a corporation bullying their way to profits with no regard for the impact on the people in their surroundings. 

Neighbors have experienced or seen Audi sales team members:

  • Speeding near children, elderly, disabled folks, and adults on 14th Street, Minna Street, Natoma Street, Mission Street, South Van Ness, and Division Streets
  • Parking illegally in the red zone, disabled parking, on the sidewalk and constantly not paying the meters in up to 8 parking spots
  • Driving the wrong way illegally down Minna Street
  • Using physical violence towards traffic enforcement and neighbors 
  • Verbally harassing disabled neighbors who park in the disabled parking spot on South Van Ness and possibly abusing the disability placard system (~4 of the 10 sales team members have a disability placard, which seems like a high percentage)
  • Using verbal threats towards residents who park or request for them to drive at slow speeds
  • Smoking in front of residences 
  • Littering on the street

When residents have attempted to request for changes from the Audi dealership sales folks and owner, they have been met with dismissal and refusal that a problem exists. Audi SF Sales Manager and self-proclaimed decision maker has said "when [someone dies] here, we will revisit" their dangerous behavior. See video here.

We demand that Audi SF dealership:

  • Stop speeding & playing loud music
  • Stop driving wrong way on Minna Street
  • Use disabled placards for only legitimate disability cases
  • Stop parking on sidewalk & red zone
  • Always pay the parking meters
  • Stop intimidating us when we park near you
  • Stop smoking in front of residences
  • Stop littering on the street, including cigarettes

Nosotros pedimos a Audi SF que:

  • Dejen de manejar con alta velocidad
  • Dejen de manejar en contrasentido en calle Minna
  • Dejen de estacionarse en la zona roja y la banqueta
  • Deben pagar el parquímetro
  • No acosen a los vecinos cuando nos queramos estacionar cerca de ustedes
  • Dejen de fumar frente a las viviendas
  • Dejen de tirar basura en la calle, incluyendo cigarillos
