Frisco Featured in Audi / Captain America: Civil War Commercial – But Where is This Place? – A Mystery Tunnel

Monday, April 18th, 2016

I suppose this topic is too commercial, literally, for Reddit, but I’ll try.

Where is this place? SoMA, right? I know not.

Here it is, Audi – The Chase:

(Obviously, the tunnel itself isn’t in the 415.)

I’ll tell you, I thought this was a trailer at first, but no, it’s just an Audi ad. (The tone and the music are all wrong for a Major Motion Picture, even one Sponsored By Audi. Oh also, there are too many Audis in this Audi ad.)

Anyway, I should know where this is, but I don’t.

NEWS TO ME: Our SFMTA is Going to Shut Down Powell Street to Cars South of Geary Next Year? – War Against Uber Lyft

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

Hey, you know how pissed off our slow, inefficient, politics-addled, ideologically-driven SFMTA is at Uber and Lyft and all the rest? EXTREMELY! So our SFMTA is doing all it can to reign in and profit from the Uber Lyft. But until our SFMTA can rope those cash cows, it’s going to fence off parts of Frisco to Uber Lyft as much as possible. Our SFMTA is going to do whatever it can to Fuck With Uber until Uber Pays The Man. I’m srsly.

And our SFMTA will do it in the Name Of Safety, as always.

Anyway, here are all the deets on the changes (you can’t really call them improvements until they’re done and then you can see if they’re actually improvements, right?) coming to the PoBeGa, Powell Below Geary.

(Speaking of which, I call the lower end of Powell “Audi Avenue” because, well, it’s Audi Avenue.)

Powell St Safety and Sidewalk Improvement Pilot


Join us at an open house to learn about safety and sidewalk improvements proposed for Powell Street!

The Powell Street Safety and Sidewalk Improvement Pilot will test the effectiveness of vehicle restrictions on transit delay, traffic volumes, loading patterns, and cable wear and tear. It would prohibit all vehicles except Muni, taxis, and commercial vehicles from driving on Powell Street between Ellis and Geary Streets. Stop by to learn more!

Thursday, October 8th, 2015 from 12:30 – 2 PM
The Handlery Hotel (351 Geary Street)

This open house is being hosted by the Union Square BID.

For more information about the pilot visit the project webpage.”

It’s Probably Time to Peel the “TDI clean diesel” Sticker Off of Your Audi As Well

Monday, September 28th, 2015

The News of the Day:

“Audi said 2.1 million cars worldwide were fitted with the software that allowed parent Volkswagen to cheat U.S. emission tests. Some 1.42 million Audi vehicles with so-called EU5 engines are affected in Western Europe, with 577,000 in Germany and almost 13,000 in the United States, a spokesman for Ingolstadt-based Audi said on Monday. Affected model lines include the A1, A3, A4, A5, A6, TT, Q3 and Q5…”

Oh, and here’s the story of how things came to light.

Now this ride espied in Frisco the other day is too large to be powered by a two litre engine, but even so…

Well, I suppose it’s three peds, actually. Now let’s see how they do:

See that?

The two peds on the left act properly and the jogger ped does not.

As per usual…

There’s room for improvement at this intersection, SFGov/SFMTA.

Just saying.

Joggers in the Panhandle Have Less Than a 10% Chance of Getting a Green Light at Oak and Masonic, So That’s Why They Jaywalk

Tuesday, July 14th, 2015

From Hoodline:

Two Pedestrians Injured In Oak & Masonic Collision

And that comes on the heels of this, back in April:

Pedestrian Struck By Vehicle At Masonic & Oak

The way our SFMTA has this intersection set up now is that joggers only have about 7 seconds to start crossing Masonic during a 75 second signal cycle. Assuming they don’t purposefully speed up or slow down to catch their green, that means they have less than a 10% chance of not encountering a red signal for crossing. Human nature being what it is, people jog across against the light and the resulting accident is the jogger’s fault. Check it:

Anyway, that’s why so many people are getting hit by cars at this intersection.

For whatever reason, the SFPD isn’t motivated to enforce the CA Vehicle Code upon peds, so this is the result.

If you believe in ped safety, you’d be in favor of a ped enforcement action here, to learn the joggers. OTOH, if you get paid to promote ped “rights,” then you’d disfavor a ped enforcement action here – you’d bend over backwards to displace blame. I mean, these peds aren’t “mistakenly” jaywalking, they’re doing it on purpose, right?

Choose or lose…
