IDK, three months?
All right, Honey, I’ll be in the garage scraping off the just:
The problem here isn’t that this intersection needed a brace of PCO’s – the problem here is that this is a giant three-way intersection near the Folsom Street Fair.
There are four here, all told, all in the southern part of the intersection. What are they doing?
How are they helping?
Is this SFGov’s way to fix the problem of the Warriors wanting to put their arena right next to already-existing UCSF Mission Bay – they’re just going to bill the Warriors to have four PCOs standing around a bunch of intersections?
How will that help?
And yet he’s still making more money than you:
This case is similar to those against Asiana and Boeing for Flight 214, in that seat belt design might have played a very small role. Perhaps these seat belts could have been designed better, I don’t know. Perhaps we’ll find out after trial or, more likely, this case will settle for a couple million and we’ll never hear about it again…
Here’s an interesting contrast. The local is jaywalking on the far side of the intersection, and he’s made it most of the way across, and plus he’s running.
Compare that with the Airbnb-type tourists, who, in this case, were on the near side of the intersection, and had not made it most of the way across when their light turned red and, of course, were not running:
The News of the Day:
“Audi said 2.1 million cars worldwide were fitted with the software that allowed parent Volkswagen to cheat U.S. emission tests. Some 1.42 million Audi vehicles with so-called EU5 engines are affected in Western Europe, with 577,000 in Germany and almost 13,000 in the United States, a spokesman for Ingolstadt-based Audi said on Monday. Affected model lines include the A1, A3, A4, A5, A6, TT, Q3 and Q5…”
Oh, and here’s the story of how things came to light.
Now this ride espied in Frisco the other day is too large to be powered by a two litre engine, but even so…
Even so, Dude…
Four seats, sure, but they marketed it as a “3+1,” ’cause the seat behind the driver had no legroom, assuming the driver wasn’t able to scrunch forward. But the front passenger had plenty of room, as did the right rear passenger, sort of.
Perhaps one could pick up a used model…
Imperfect alternatives still in production include the Smart ForTwo (just a two-seater), the Toyota Yaris (harder to park) and the MINI (much more expensive), oh well.
