Just Throw Your Expended DIESEL EXHAUST FLUID Container Anywhere You Want on the Streets of San Francisco

Monday, March 27th, 2017

IDK, I guess the owner of a diesel vehicle wanted to be able to keep on trucking without visiting a dealership (and without paying potentially hundreds and hundreds(!) for a DEF fill up), but this is a quite minimal effort at disposal here.

As seen just outside O’Reilly’s on Geary:

It’s possible the garbage crew might call the hazmat team on this one, not that this article is so dangerous, but separating the box, breaking it down, and rinsing out the container with water, and then disposing of it all at home, well that was called for here…

(I mean it’s mostly harmless, right? Actually, IDK how you’re supposed to properly dispose of diluted urea dregs. I’d prolly try to get every last drop into my ride.)

Or maybe O’Reilly c/would be required to take back the garbage it sells to you, that’d be another way of avoiding this kind of sitch…

Bushpocalypse Now – Frisco Sees Its Worst Traffic Ever In 2017 – Highest Number of Registered “Vehicles” in History

Friday, March 24th, 2017

That stat is as of Calendar Year 2015, but our friends at CA DMV are putting the finishing touch on the numbers for Calendar Year 2016.

So is a trailer a “vehicle?” IDK. IDTS. But 2016 looks to be the year we push over the half-million mark for vehicles registerd in Frisco.

And of course that doesn’t include all the new UBER Lyfts from all over.

So here’s the result, from yesterday’s evening drive. Southbound Sansome is all backed up, but look, you can see a PCO Intercepter cart on the scene, to fix everything:

I was thinking, it’s morphin’ time – time for another round of three-figure parking/traffic tickets for “blocking the box.” But no, the PCO disappeared with a quickness. Leaving SFMTA Dude in the Bush Street HOV lane all by himself. Turns out he was patiently waiting to proceed behind some more stalled traffic. He was soon gone as well.

Bush Street is always bad, but yesterday was especially bad. Five eastbound cars sat in the intersection for about five minutes. But then they advanced leaving room for a few buses and cars on Sansome to sneak through north and south.

Bush doesn’t get any more crowded than this:

Anyway, that’s the update.

How Many Tickets Does the SFMTA Issue to Its Own Drivers?

Friday, December 16th, 2016

How about zero?

20160603_175141-copy

It’s just a cultural thing. Since the SFMTA is primarily driven by what’s best for SFMTA employees, it would take a lot of outside of the box thinking for an SFMTA ticket giver to give a ticket to a fellow SFMTA employee.

Even though SFMTA employees do sometimes park where they shouldn’t, right?

Am I saying it’s easy to drive around an 18 meter bus on the streets of San Francisco? No, not at all. What I’m saying is that the SFMTA isn’t as perfect as it thinks it is. Another way of saying this is “MUNI sucks,” which is always a proper starting point when considering SFMTA issues.

And if our SFMTA is pushing for automated enforcement of speeding laws, why doesn’t it start with itself and its employees first? It could do this right now without any changes in state law. (Oh, and maybe a little back and forth with a union or two.) Just saying…
