Petition against toll walking/biking across GG bridge

Idea: charge toll for Pacifica trails
CBSSF Bay Area/5 KPIX, 11/27/14.  "More than 20,000 sign petition to block proposed sidewalk toll on Golden Gate Bridge ."

"SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – An online petition calling to put an end to a proposal that would implement a pedestrian and bike fee for people crossing the Golden Gate Bridge has already gathered thousands of signatures.

The Care2 petition was launched after the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District Board of Directors voted in October to keep considering a pedestrian and cyclist fee for those crossing the span.

“The Care2 petition is opposed to the fee and it is asking the Board of Directors to kill the proposal and not institute a fee,” said Julie Mastrine, social media manager for Care2, a petition site and online community that has more than 26 million members worldwide."    Read more.
