The San Francisco Police Department gave the city’s Board of Supervisors an earful at a Monday hearing about downtown traffic and pointed the finger for traffic violations squarely at so-called transit network companies (TNCs) like Lyft and Uber.

At a hearing in front of the city’s Land Use and Transportation Committee, Robert O’Sullivan, the department’s commander of municipal transportation, presented a dramatic graphic to city lawmakers breaking down traffic violations during a three month period.

According to Cmdr. O’Sullivan, on a dozen targeted days between April 1 and June 30 of this year, SFPD recorded 2,656 transit violations in SoMa, FiDi, and parts of the Mission, of which 1,723 occurred on account of TNC drivers.
