Balboa Dip, Two Angles

Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

Who says The Richmond is boring?


This is, and has been, a thing – see?


Hey, should these two blocks be on the Strava? Well, since there’re stop signs at the bottom of the dip, the answer is NO. Unless the “King of the Mountain” can actually stop, wait for any cross traffic to clear and then climb up to the next intersection in just 13 seconds…

If only Strava had more lawyer-advisors, you know, instead of the lawyer-investors, then Strava might look at this issue differently…

The Speed Limit on Western JFK Drive in Golden Gate Park is No Longer Just 10 MPH – “SLOW DOWN”

Monday, August 29th, 2016

IDK, maybe somebody hacked this sign to say what it says. Regardless, this is a big improvement over the 10 MPH sign it used to be just a few days back:

More changes are coming for this area, before 2017, to prevent you from using JFK the way you’re used to…

The Quiet Scene After a Hit and Run on Clement?

Wednesday, August 17th, 2016

One assumes. The Mercedes driver seemed combobulated enough, but she was satisfied to sit there for minutes and minutes. (This would not have been my reaction.)

One attempts to offer assistance, but then one just moves on with one’s day as the snap crackle and pop, pop, pop of traffic driving over Mercedes plastic fades away…

The Speed Limit on a Stretch of JFK Drive is Now 10 MPH

Tuesday, August 16th, 2016

This official “SLOW TO 10 MPH” sign was up near Speedway Meadow during Outside Lands 2016, but it’s still there now long after OL’s blown town:

The limit goes back up to 25 MPH near 30th Avenue?

(This trailer doesn’t “see” bikes, AFAIK, unlike some others.)

Changes to the “access” we have to JFK are coming soon, but I don’t know what they are and if this is a part of it.

Our Presidio sometimes records license plate numbers and checks timestamps to see who’s “cutting through” the park (instead of having the Presidio as a destination in itself). The Presidio People think “Cut Through Traffic” is evil, but really, all traffic is cut-through traffic to somebody. Oh well.

If SFGov wants people to use Fulton instead of JFK, there will be some problems with that…

An Up-Close View of the Prius-Killing Tree of Clement Street

This attack from a few months back…


…came from this tree, which still shows where it broke apart:

It’s Official: The SFMTA’s Rental Car Partner “Getaround” has Turned One Parking Space into Two – One Simple Trick!

Smart Cars sure are short, huh?

This looks like Gay Paree, except our version of the Smartcar Four-Two is actually a little longer than what those Europeans use.

Anyway, I don’t know how workable this is day-to-day, but there it is, two cars / one space.
