I would like to recommend that a hot spot magenta circle be added to the san francisco international airport on all of san francisco's airport taxi charts at the intersection of taxiway F and runways 1L/1R. During morning departures; sfo tower clears aircraft for takeoff on runways 1L/1R; while simultaneously directing aircraft on taxiway F (eastbound) to hold short of runway 1L and/or runway 1R. The timing of the taxi by aircraft approaching the intersection of taxiway F and runways 1L/right is many times coincidental with the takeoff rotation of aircraft on runways 1L/right. A hotspot designation on this chart would help make crews aware of this taxiway and runway critical area.

Title: ACR PILOT SUGGESTS THAT THE INTERSECTION OF TXWY F AND RWYS 1L AND 1R AT SFO BE DESIGNATED A RWY INCURSION HOT SPOT.
Narrative: I WOULD LIKE TO RECOMMEND THAT A HOT SPOT MAGENTA CIRCLE BE ADDED TO THE SAN FRANCISCO INTL ARPT ON ALL OF SAN FRANCISCO'S ARPT TAXI CHARTS AT THE INTXN OF TXWY F AND RWYS 1L/1R. DURING MORNING DEPS; SFO TWR CLRS ACFT FOR TKOF ON RWYS 1L/1R; WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY DIRECTING ACFT ON TXWY F (EBOUND) TO HOLD SHORT OF RWY 1L AND/OR RWY 1R. THE TIMING OF THE TAXI BY ACFT APCHING THE INTXN OF TXWY F AND RWYS 1L/R IS MANY TIMES COINCIDENTAL WITH THE TKOF ROTATION OF ACFT ON RWYS 1L/R. A HOTSPOT DESIGNATION ON THIS CHART WOULD HELP MAKE CREWS AWARE OF THIS TXWY AND RWY CRITICAL AREA.
