Oh, what’s that, do both cars have valid handicapped placards displayed? Yes.

Time’s up!

Did you pick the car on the right? ‘Cause, you know, the driver parked right by the blue sign and next to the blue paint, right? You know, the way s/he’s done it hundreds of times before in the state of Califoria.

But SURPRISE! JFK Drive is a part of SFMTA Crazy Land, where up is down and left is right, where you’re supposed to follow the blue diagonal lines to the correct place to park, which is close to the middle of the street.

The handicapped driver of the car on the right, who made an honest mistake, let’s assume, gets awarded a fat ticket worth three figures for losing this quiz.

Check it:

Hey, do cyclists like the new bike lanes on JFK Drive?

No, not really.

Oh well.

    Those “Nazca” lines are painted on streets and highways for a reason. Drivers, ALL drivers should be able to correctly read them.
    Yes, the GGP thing is somewhat baffling, but a driver’s responsibility is to figure it out.

    Well, this is a one in a million location. I can figure it out by Nana from Stockton can’t, or at least a good portion of them can’t

    The city just needs to put up some barriers protecting that bike lane and things like this wouldn’t be confusing, AND the bike lane would be a lot safer. Nothing drastic, just some of those flexible poles space 4-5 feet apart as elsewhere would do.

    The SFMTA might like that too, but they’re not allowed to put in anything owing to Healthy Sundays, I think. They want to keep things open for those days…
