Lyft Driver vs. (Car-Free) Sunday Streets

Not sure how dude managed to get himself smack dab in the middle of Sunday Streets Western Addition 2017, but here he is, with a few WTF stares and at least one whatsamatteryou hand gesture:

And then more gesturing, as seen with this official Volunteer, and dude was off up Baker, which I think was his goal from the beginning:

(I should say that this amount of yelling and whatnot is a lot mellower than when out-of-town drivers saw a Critical Mass Friday night bicycle parade for the first time, like on Market, back in the day…)

Anyway, that’s how a Lyft driver reacts upon seeing a Sunday Streets for the first time.

    Lyft/Uber software needs to include Sunday Streets alerts and rerouting. Or better yet: ban them from pick-ups in the City on these Sun. Streets days. Walk, people. Walk! (unless disabled). No weight problems, no diabetes, no joint problems, happiness; partake of street life instead of in your car. The pounds just melt off! Larry King says so!

    Google knows where marathons are, sometimes, so there’s no reason it couldn’t tell ppl about Sunday Streets

    I’ve noticed a substantial increase in angry, frantic hornblowing in the city with the proliferation of clueless drivers of Uber and Lyft.

    …and a proliferation of such ride-hail drivers who simply don’t stop for pedestrians.

    Sunday streets was displayed in google maps. Funny how google/waze can’t get it right in their own backyard. When stockton st, south of post was shut down, they had it open for the longest time in maps.
