San Francisco, CA

Type: Vehicle Fee

Outcome: Win

Results: Passed, 51%-49%

Under the terms of the ballot proposition, San Francisco voters would have to pay $10 more every year to register their vehicles than they currently do. A simple majority vote is required for passage.
If approved, it is anticipated that the new tax on cards would bring in about $5 million more each year. The money from the tax would be dedicated to pay for street repair, pedestrian safety and transit reliability improvement projects. These costs are currently paid out of the city's general operating fund. The money would be spent as follows:

  • 50% street repairs
  • 25% transit reliability and mobility
  • 25% pedestrian safety
