The Perfectly Wrong Place to Stop Your Car to Pick Up Your Bud – Are YOU Like This Driver?

Thursday, August 7th, 2014

So, like I think I’d be idling about two yards(!) to the right of where this driver chose to pick up Brocephus and take him to work, particularly if I knew he would be getting in on the left side.

No matter, I ended up passing this car on the right.

In closing, welcome to America, Acura Driver. You’ll like it here on this side of the pond, where we drive on the right side of the right and we pull over to the right and not the left…

DPT Stakeout at Costco – Disabled Placard “Street Team” – Expired Permit – Jersey Plates – Lonely Pooch

Monday, November 21st, 2011

(Check it, my first pro-SFMTA post.)

This cute pup was guarding an Acura parked on 10th Street while its owner visited our SoMA Costco (I assume, I mean, why else would anybody park down there?)

Problem? The disabled placard hanging from the rear-view has expired. See?

So guess who was waiting for this car’s owner to show up – it was DPT’s Disabled Placard Street Team with their bright blue shoulder patches.

Les mise-en-scene avec Etat de Jardin* license plates sur la Acura bleu:

This issue could end up costing the driver thousands of dollars, when all is said and done.** (I can’t say for sure because I don’t get paid by the City Family to stakeout cars, plus I had to split. Oh well.)

Now, WWSD? Like What Would KRON-TV’s Stanley Roberts Do if he came upon this scene? Oh yes, something like this.

But, you know, I might possibly be beefier than Stanley (I know I’m taller than he but I could actually outweigh him) and, you know, I wouldn’t want to get into an another Elmo situation.

Bon courage, Acura pooch. Your owner will need all the love she can get today.

**The funny thing is that Costco has plenty of free parking. And honestly, I don’t think the good people of Costco would care all that much if you parked in their garage while shopping elsewhere. As stated, there’s nothing else going on ’round that area so it’s not like they’re on the lookout for renegade parkers.
