My latest column: 45 cops work in the San Francisco Police Dept's traffic division. Together, they're issuing just 10 traffic citations a day -- a plunge from 74 citations a day three years ago. "What exactly are they doing?" asked a safe streets advocate.

San Francisco is saturated w/ cars. 472,409 to be exact. They are everywhere, but where do they actually live? I pulled data from the DMV and U.S. census and put it on a map. Let's take a look. 👇🧵
