I’m not sure what a hate crime is anymore.
Note human, for scale:
One assumes it might have something to do with this, Contract 2419J?
OTOH, where’s the battery if this rig is all-electric? I know not.
Compare all this with a legal all-electric bike rider ebikefan, whose mellow gets harshed by a mean-spirited hippie:
Success continues to elude the A2B electric bike people. I’ll tell you, most of the people in town you see on these e-bikes are somehow affiliated with the company itself, believe it or not. Something like $5000 is too too much for what these bikes are, but the other problem is that I wouldn’t want one if they gave me one for free.* I suppose if you’d paid me to ride one about and take charge of its safekeeping and lug it up and down stairs, well then I’d think about it. And if I accepted your deal, I’d be just like most of the other A2Ber’s in town, like, apparently, ebikefan, getting paid to operate an A2B…
*So don’t give me this oh, well, if you can’t afford a premium bike stuff. An A2B might be fun for Jay Leno to collect and have to gather dust in one of his garages (I’m seriously, I think he has one), but there’s a reason why they’re not popular…

Perhaps somebody thought our history of being a possession of Spain or a part of Mexico should be reflected in all street names, IDK. (Here’s a little history on Spanishtown and Dagoville (the Sunset and the Richmond together, basically.))
On It Goes…
Here it is:
Making things easier for tourists/foreigners/newcomers would be just one good reason for Google to stop doing stuff like this…
