Parking Crisis Leads to a Fail, in Two Ways

Friday, June 23rd, 2017

First up is that you’re not supposed to leave your ride touching other cars. It just aint right.

And then on the other side, you can’t leave your bumper hanging over a crosswalk.

My Rx is a Scion IQ (out of production, due to lack of popularity) or a Smart car. Either would solve both probs…

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

Here’s the news:

This kind of thing wasn’t allowed afore, but it is now.

I don’t know how many Scoots make it way out there to the Outer Sunset, but if you take up the parking space in front of a house, you know, “my space” as the homeowner thinks of it, well that’s bad enough if you do it with a car, but with a for-profit rental scooter, well, Katy Bar The Door.

You’ll see.

Absurdly Low 35 MPH Speed Limit on The 101 Freeway in Northern Frisco Finally Raised – Can You Guess the Limit Now?

Thursday, June 15th, 2017

[Isn’t it funny how ppl from SoCal say “the 101” when they want they want listeners to understand that it’s freeways we’re talking about while ppl from NorCal ALSO say “the 101” when they want they want listeners to understand that it’s freeways we’re talking about? Non? I guess not. Anyway, feel free to call 101 freeway the 101, even if you live in Frisco.]

40, it’s 40 MPH now. Still absurdly low, but now less absurdly.

Here’s how things used to be at 101 South in the Presidio – 35 MPH maximum. Slow, so slow+

And here’s how things are now on The World’s Slowest Freeway section:

Let’s call this a slight improvement:

There could be some thing where the CHP can’t give you a ticket for “speeding” at 42 MPH on a freeway, but IDK the deets on that.

Anyway, enjoy your 40 MPH autobahn, Frisco…
