The Amazing Polluting Mopeds of San Francisco’s Mission District

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

Forget about the high-heeled scooter riders of yesteryear. We have more important business now.

This one’s a little tough to spot at first, but if you click to expand this photo, you’ll see the telltale blue smoke of a gasoline-and-oil-burning two-stroke Peugeot moped on Valencia Street in the Sunny Mission district.

Depending on the state of tune, you can have something like half of the fuel and oil you put in spewed out the tailpipe unburned.

Tuk tuk tuk tuk tuk tuk….

Such are the ways of aging two-stroke engines.

So fashion has a price, after all.

Vrooom, vrooom.

(IDK, if I were living out in the Avenues with dial-up internet and didn’t have the option of getting AT&T U-Verse, I think a big green utility box would look better than these blue benches, just saying.)

Two Cars Parked Next to Each Other on JFK Drive in Golden Gate Park: You’ll Never Guess Which is Legally Parked in the Handicapped Zone

Time’s up!

Did you pick the car on the right? ‘Cause, you know, the driver parked right by the blue sign and next to the blue paint, right? You know, the way s/he’s done it hundreds of times before in the state of Califoria.

But SURPRISE! JFK Drive is a part of SFMTA Crazy Land, where up is down and left is right, where you’re supposed to follow the blue diagonal lines to the correct place to park, which is close to the middle of the street.

The handicapped driver of the car on the right, who made an honest mistake, let’s assume, gets awarded a fat ticket worth three figures for losing this quiz.

Check it:

Hey, do cyclists like the new bike lanes on JFK Drive?

No, not really.

Oh well.
