What some people don’t get is that it’s all right for a driver to enter an intersection on a yellow and then clear the intersection on a red. That’s why peds aren’t necessarily allowed to proceed when the lights turn green for them. This aspect of the CA Vehicle Code is not all that well known.
In any event, this a red light runner, IRL, a relatively sight for me:
So it was noteworthy…

From the SFGate:
“In an interview Thursday, Lee said he wasn’t fully up to speed on the protests in Hong Kong, where he met his wife decades ago. Much of the rest of the world, however, has been watching the scenes of protesters using umbrellas to protect themselves from tear gas. “To be candid, I haven’t studied all of the reason’s why they’re protesting,” Lee said. “It’s Occupy Hong Kong, so if they’re anything like Occupy San Francisco, you’re going to have to study it for a while to see what there are trying to say.”
Uh, actually, there’s one basic reason, which most people SF already seem to know about. To wit:
“In September 2014, pro-democracy advocates in Hong Kong protested outside the government headquarters and occupied several major city intersections soon after the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress (NPCSC) an8i88nounced its decision on proposed electoral reform. The NPCSC would require a nomination committee to pre-approve up to three electoral candidates before proceeding to a vote involving the general population. After the election, the Chief Executive-elect would then still need to be formally appointed by the central government before officially taking the post.”
Our SFMTA has certified that there’s no opposition to its plans to slow down Masonic by putting in a median and a bumch of trees.
And yet, ppl in there are putting up home-made signs, thusly:
Something doesn’t add up…
On this stretch, I drive in the middle of the road, both traveling east and west, for pedestrian safety:
If the median here were actually installed by the SFMTA / DPW / whomever (instead of just being painted on), I’d be forced to drive very close to the place where bad peds tend to dart out.
I care about ped safety. The SFMTA cares about, what, “sustainable streets” theology?
