UPS Driver Uses Three-Day-Old Parking Ticket to Try to Avoid Getting More Tickets in the Financh

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

I’ve always suspected this, but here’s the proof:

The SFMTA MUNI DPT citation you see was three days old. That means that the driver either just leaves the ticket on this truck 24-7 or s/he takes it off at night and then puts it back on in the morning.

Of course, most towns in America have spaces for UPS trucks to park.

But not San Francisco…

Officer Involved Shooting at the 600 blk of Funston Ave.
11-107
Posted Date: 10/3/2011
On October 3, 2011 at approximately 7:18 a.m., San Francisco Police responded to a call of a stabbing at the 600 block of Funston Ave. Officers and paramedics arrived on the scene and discovered a 78 year old Chinese male victim in front of the residence bleeding profusely. The victim suffered a stab wound to his hand and forearm.

Officers and paramedics immediately rendered medical aid in attempt to control the bleeding. The officers continued up the stairway where they found a 78 year old Chinese female victim with what the officers believed to be life threatening stab wounds to the body. As officers were trying to pull the victim to safety and get medical treatment for the female victim, they were confronted by a 44 year old Chinese male suspect.

The suspect had two knives as he advanced towards the officers. One officer used an Extended Range Impact Weapon (ERIW) in an effort to subdue the suspect. The ERIW proved to be ineffective. A cover officer discharged his firearm on the advancing suspect and stopped the deadly threat. Officers continued to search the house for additional suspects and victims and found a 50 year old Chinese female hiding in the back of the house inside a locked bedroom, she was uninjured.

All victims and suspect are related. The suspect was the son of both 78 year old victims, and the uninjured female found by officers at the scene, was the sister of the suspect.

At approximately, 9:39 a.m. the suspect was pronounced dead at the hospital. The 78 year old female victim was also pronounced dead a few minutes later at the hospital at 9:41 a.m

This is an active ongoing police investigation by the San Francisco Police Department’s Homicide Detail, Internal Affairs Division, District Attorney’s Office, and the Office of Citizens Complaints.

There will be a community meeting pertaining to the officer involved shooting tomorrow, October 4, 2011 at 6:30 p.m. Location will be at the Richmond Recreational Center at 251 18th Ave between Clement and California.”

GAMA-GO Flagship Store One Year Anniversary Party Today in SoMA

Saturday, May 8th, 2010

It’s on today at GAMA-GO. Deets below.

A new toothbrush for your hippo or a just funner method to wash dishes? Either way, it’s merely $8:

As promised, the deets:

“We’ll be cutting loose at 335 8th St. on Saturday, May 8.  From 12-5pm, the whole GAMA-GO crew will be on site to mix it up with local street food vendors, drinks and entertainment.

In addition to hobnobbing with the artists and founders, the first 50 shoppers who spend more than $40 will receive a free, limited edition print. Each print is numbered and signed by GAMA-GO artist Wednesday Kirwan

It’s been a heck of a year and the flagship store’s success has beaten all of our estimates. Since our opening, the seven/eighths’ neighborhood has exploded with new businesses: Vega, Sight Glass, Radius, Terrior, Fondue Cowboy, Kink Cafe, the Bloodhound - and shortly Bento 415 and Pinkie’s Bakery – have all arrived to cater to this newly-resurgent neighborhood.

It’s sure to be a fun-filled afternoon and we are looking forward to celebrating with our fans, friends, and neighborhood pals.”

Parking Tickets – Does FedEx Make Money Delivering in the Financial District?

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

I mean, sure, Fed-Ex makes money on deliveries in San Francisco, but what if you subtract out the amount of dough they pay daily to the DPT? Too bad delivery vehicles don’t have a place to park or something.

This aging Ford van got pwned with two parking tickets in one day down in the Financial District:

Poor FedEx!

How Many Parking Tickets Does UPS Get Each Day in San Francisco? Lots and Lots

Thursday, September 3rd, 2009

Here’s the scene in the Financial District – why does the UPS driver double park instead of using the space near the curb? Double parking can get you a ticket, right? The orange cone is a nice touch, however….

Uh oh, this doesn’t look good. Do UPS drivers really try to fool the DPT ticket issuers with the old I-already-got-a-ticket routine? Apparently

CRW_6271 copy

Oh well, that’s another $78 down the drain. Did this truck get two tickets yesterday?

That’s what you might conclude after checking the DPT website for online ticketing information.

Does UPS currently owe thousands of dollars to S.F. for illegal parking? Yes.

But if it’s only $2000 a day or so, well that’s just the cost of doing business in the big city, right?
