On It Goes:

This ticket was issued in July 2014. The officer wrote $26 but the actual fine was just $23.
It was for “parking on grass” except there wasn’t any actual grass parked upon, oh well.
Anyway, it’s obvious that Rec and Park hasn’t caught up with the SFMTA in the ticket price inflation competition:
Why isn’t this ticket $123 or $223?
And why does the SFMTA, operators of the worst big city transit agency in America, have the highest parking ticket prices in America?
Anyway, if you want a parking violation that you can laugh off as you’re paying it off, this is the one for you
Northbound Masonic at Fell:
There are a lot of places to stop here. Where you’re supposed to stop is the stop line before the crosswalk, but this driver chose the far end of the crosswalk.
Here’s the thing – once you’ve crossed over your stop line, you’ve committed yourself to the intersection and therefore you need to clear it before cross traffic starts.
There’s no waiting option.
If you want to hang out longer, do it before your stop line, no matter how far back from the intersection the SFMTA / DPW has put the stop line…
Octavia Boulevard Update: Anybody Who Claims This Short Road Has “High-Speed Motor Traffic” is LyingMonday, September 15th, 2014
Now if you want real “high-speed motor traffic,” well then look to the 280 freeway.
But if you want a poorly-designed glorified freeway offramp with lots of slow-moving bumper-to-bumper gridlock, well then Octavia is your bingo.
See? This is typical. Traffic has been jammed up here starting about a week after this road opened. This is exactly what low-speed traffic looks like:
No it’s not!
Lying hurts your case. Lying doesn’t help your case.
These days, the best you can hope for is a new car merely something like a G6, like a G6.
But in my day, the car brand Pontiac was still alive and it made actual G6 cars.
See? Perhaps they were rushing to meet up with the Mint Police?
And postal inspectors (they call themselves police? OK fine) still drive them around, apparently.
And those people on Oprah still drive them as well, I s’pose…
Freeway vs. Highway Explained – “Our Street is Not a Highway!” – But, Oh Yes, It Is – San Mateo UpdateMonday, September 15th, 2014
Apparently, some millionaire land-owning burgers down in San Mateo, specifically San Carlos, specifically east San Carlos, right next to the 101 are/were mad about taking one for the team, about losing the parking spaces in front of their hou$e$ for the Greater Good.
I know that because I saw all these signs. You see, it’s OUR PARKING SPACES vs. THE CONCERNS OF EVERYBODY ELSE IN THE WORLD.
Or, as they put it, it’s CARS vs. KIDS:
The problem with this is that all roads in California are highways, pretty much.
So, in fact, HOLLY STREET IS A HIGHWAY.
And actually it has it’s own freeway offramp – some people might think that’s a good thing, IDK
