Ferrari 328 GTS:

Haven’t seen one of these in ages. I’m shocked to see the high prices. I’d have thought that this ride could be acquired for like $25k. Shows what I know.

Front license plates are required in Cali, but as is typical, special people don’t have them on their special cars:

Now sometimes it’s hard, like when you’re at a place that doesn’t have countdown timers, like many places in Frisco that should have them but don’t, for some reason, but that’s not the case here:

This isn’t the end of the world, I’m just saying Typical San Francisco Pedestrian, Starts Marching Across on a Yellow.
