Maybe if they advertised to pedestrians that every time you make a car, or line of cars, brake or stop you cause it to waste gas having to accelerate to get back up to speed. Really play up on all that tree-hugging guilt. A poster with someone jaywalking in front of a VW diesel and birds dropping dead out of the sky. Yeah, that'd do it. It is San Francisco after all.
