How to Cross Fulton in the Avenues as a Pedestrian: Act Like You are a Jaywalker, Whether You are or Not

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

Let me explain. Bro here crossed all willy-nilly, which isn’t illegal at all, but it’s dangerous because he didn’t get a buy in from all the drivers. See?

All these cars were moving with the exception of the black car on the left. The white truck in the fast lane should have stopped but didn’t.

What I’d suggest is waiting for a break in traffic first, as if you were a jay walker.

And the bigger suggestion would be to put traffic lights on Fulton.

Of course our SFMTA has no interest in doing that.

Oh well.

Honest Frisco Infrastructure

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

Not that I’m complaining.

There’s an “undergrounding” movement afoot run by rich people who want to place these wires and whatnot under the ground and then send the bill to the little people, such as you, Gentle Reader.

IRL, wires are beautiful, man
