Airbnbers from Arizona Defy SFMTA with Parking Backwards Technique

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015

Some streets in Frisco are one-way, of course, but this isn’t one of them!

Ergo, this parking backwards style is agin the law:

But what’s the SFMTA/MUNI/DPT/SFBC* going to do about it? Give a ticket for $100-something? Well, I don’t know how much will these ppl will care by the time they get to Phoenix.

Oh, but what about a tow job? Uh oh – is our massively failed transit system allowed to tow these rides? IDK.

In closing:

“S’up Arizona? How you liking the rain, girl?”


V C Section 22502 Curb Parking

Curb Parking

22502. (a) Except as otherwise provided in this chapter, a vehicle stopped or parked upon a roadway where there are adjacent curbs shall be stopped or parked with the right-hand wheels of the vehicle parallel with and within 18 inches of the right-hand curb, except that a motorcycle shall be parked with at least one wheel or fender touching the right-hand curb. Where no curbs or barriers bound a two-way roadway, right-hand parallel parking is required unless otherwise indicated.
(b) (1) The provisions of subdivision (a) or (e) do not apply to a commercial vehicle if a variation from the requirements of subdivision (a) or (e) is reasonably necessary to accomplish the loading or unloading of merchandise or passengers on, or from, a vehicle and while anything connected with the loading, or unloading, is being executed.

(2) This subdivision does not permit a vehicle to stop or park upon a roadway in a direction opposite to that in which traffic normally moves upon that half of the roadway on which the vehicle is stopped or parked.

*Yeah, our bicycle coalition is effectively an arm of the guvmint these days, go figure.

Well, the car’s pointing in the wrong direction, that’s all.

Hey, does the our California Academy of Sciences or Recreation and Park Department get any Uber money for helping fill out with commercial photography?

You know, just asking.

Now, let’s hear from the peanut gallery:

If I could give it zero stars, I would.  This location is synonymous with trash, drug abuse, and a family unfriendly environment receiving literally hundreds of police calls.  McDonalds HQ should shut it down or clean it up as it gives all McDonalds a bad name.”

OK then.

A Grown Man on His Stand Up Tricycle in San Francisco

Thursday, July 17th, 2008

Now you might think this fellow zooming down Golden Gate Avenue (not too far from where Patty Hearst spent a few terrifying months) is standing on a California Chariot, but you’d be wrong because this backwards tricycle appears to have pedals and a drivetrain.


Complete with his “Wild Kid” T-shirt, this man has got it going on, leaning this way and that down Ignatius Heights.

For those about to trike, we salute you.
