A new acronym is called for here, IMO

Just My Observation, but there are lots of cops around to pull people over this week in the 94117. As here on Oak:
I assumed that this ride had been pulled over for an expired registration, and I was correct, ’cause like you can’t really speed on this stretch of Oak.
I’m thinking the SFPD really likes to use license plate scanners in this area since lots of drivers get shunted into the Fell Oak corridor and it’s like fish in a barrel.
Generally speaking, having one-month expired registration tags (tabs?) is not that big of a deal, but whoo boy, once you get past six months, well Katie Bar The Door – the CVC takes a very dim view of waiting half a year to get your annual registration completed, just saying.
Anyway, it’s rare to see a business vehicle with expired registration, but these days, with license plate scanners all about, you just might get pulled over, with a quickness…
Here’s What It Looks Like When the Homeless Outreach Team (HOT) Ventures Out to the End of Hayes Street – Super Bowl 50-Related?Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016
I’m sure the HOT ppl come out here “all the time,” out here west of Masonic and north of the Panhandle, but I never really see them, certainly not in a distinctive vehicle like this:
I’ll tell you, the 21 Hayes was working just fine over the weekend, which just happened to be the weekend opening time of Super Bowl City. That means that you’d see empty or emptyish 21 Hayeses on empty streets like at 6:30 AM. And you’d see two buses together as well, and this is important, they’d be heading in OPPOSITE DIRECTIONS and not bunched up tailgating each other. That’s the key, MUNI.
Anyway, if MUNI spends all sorts of time and attention and (our) money to focus on one weekend, it can operate a decent bus line for a handful of ppl early in the AM – that’s the lesson I’m learning from over the past weekend.
So that’s it, that’s about as close as I’m going to get to #SB50, now that the NFL ppl have hauled off their garish “50” ad from Alamo Square.
I’ll be on the lookout for more HOT vehicles on patrol, but I think it’ll be 2017 afore I see another one out here…
You know, for illegal parking, this isn’t bad:
Sorry if that’s too nuanced for you, or Scott Wiener or Ed Lee or whomever…
