In operation since 1873,?passengers travel through town on cable cars, moving and?gripping a cable that is constantly in motion just below the street.Their old-fashioned look?and open-air seating have made them a tourist favorite.?They likely would have ceased?operating, however, if?it hadn't been for Friedel Klussmann. In January 1947, San Francisco mayor Roger Lapham proposed a plan to rid the city of cable cars. The cars, he argued, posed a safety threat because the cables?were?old and might snap, resulting in a runaway car. [A] They?were?also?a?financial?burden?on?the?city.[B] He?proposed?replacing?the?cable?cars?with buses that?would?operate?reliably, on the steep streets of San Francisco,?and?be profitable. [C] Klussmann, the president of the San Francisco Federation of the?Arts, and she was?a fan of cable cars, was unconvinced. In March 1947, Klussmann called a meeting of the leaders of twenty-seven women's civic groups, forming the Citizens Committee to Save the Cable Cars. [D] Led?by?Klussmann, fan of cable cars,?the group rebutted the mayor's arguments in a press release. Cable cars were safe, they argued; in fact, cable cars caused?fewer accidents then?did buses. Additionally, cable cars made money for the city by?commending?tourism. [1] With the signatures?over?50,000 supporters,?the?committee's?amendment was granted?a spot on?the?ballot that November. [2]Still, the mayor wanted to scrap the cable cars. [3] Klussmann realized that the best way to protect the cable cars would be to pass an amendment?to the city?charter and?the city would be required?to?retain them. Two days before the election, Klussmann put?signs?from a previously eliminated cable car route on a cable?car,?which?she?(Klussmann)?then?paraded through town?to?remind San Franciscans
