Is San Francisco on your to-go list? Now you may have to pay to drive down world-famous Lombard Street
Thousands of tourists may soon have to pay as much as 10 dollars (€8.91) to drive down a world-famous crooked street in San Francisco.
Plans are being considered that would allow the city to establish a toll for Lombard Street. In the summer months, an estimated 6,000 people a day visit the street, creating lines of cars that stretch for blocks.
Residents say the scenic thoroughfare feels more like an overcrowded amusement park than a neighbourhood street.
They have been calling for years for officials to address the traffic jams, rubbish and trespassing by visitors.
The city would need state approval to charge people to use a public road.
