Longtime East Bay Resident and SFGate Advocacy Journalist CW Nevius ID’s Cable Car as a “Hyde Street Trolly”Monday, January 6th, 2014
(You can take the boy out of the East Bay (and plop him in a SoMA condo), but you can’t take the East Bay out of the boy.)
Gentle Reader, consider CW Nevius and his most recent bit advocating for the oppressed white millionaire homeowners of Russian Hill – this time he’s acting at the behest of Supervisor Mark Farrell (R., District 2)

Now I think the word you’re looking for, CW Nevius, is trolley with an “e,” as in potatoe.
Except it aint a trolley, it’s a cable car. To wit:
“…electric tram (streetcar), sometimes confused with a cable car.”
And the vehicle code section cited here is wrong:
“The problem, says Deputy City Attorney Buck Delventhal, is California Vehicle Code 21106.1…”
CW Nevius, if you’re going to take the trouble to cite a law, why not take the time to do it the right way? Do you feel overworked, CW? You shouldn’t. Moving on…
And there’s this:
“Stefani says Farrell’s office was unaware of the 1987 law…”
Uh, former law? Or former bill? Did the “law” sunset automatically? And was it ever signed by The Duke in the first place? I don’t think so actually.
You see, CW Nevius, what you should look at are the reasons why the millionaires’ efforts always fail. Try this on for size:
“The streets of a city belong to the people of the state, and the use thereof is an inalienable right of every citizen, subject to legislative control or such reasonable regulations as to the traffic thereon or the manner of using them as the legislature may deem wise or proper to adopt and impose.’ … ‘Streets and highways are established and maintained primarily for purposes of travel and transportation by the public, and uses incidental thereto. Such travel may be for either business or pleasure…”
Nevius, why don’t you retire or go back to sports, srsly? Then you’d get replaced by somebody who would do your job better than you, right? Wouldn’t that be a win-win?
But before you do that, why don’t you fix this**`?
“Jose had been struck by a late-’90s, silver, four-door sedan as he stepped off the curb at Oak and Scott.”
“And the intersection of Fell and Scott, where Jose was hit, has consistently been described as one of the city’s most dangerous.”
*Looks like somebody is striking a pose on the crosswalk:
I’m a model you know what I mean
And I do my little turn on the
Yeah on the catwalk on the crosswalk, yeah
I do my little turn on the crosswalk
**I actually believed The Neve on the Fell and Scott thing, so I was going to go out there a week or two later on a Tuesday night at around the same time on the theory that this was somebody coming home during the evening drive. But then I saw that the actual location was on Oak so now I think the driver isn’t on a commuting schedule. You know, I’ve got a Canon 5D, crank the ISO up to 25,600, use a simple 200mm 2.8 prime to see if I could see some damage and get a plate. I mean it might have been worth the effort.
Another Sad Case of MUNI Fraud – And Yet, Does the SFMTA Give Tickets to Cable Car Drivers Who Steal $6 Fares? NoWednesday, November 14th, 2012
This is the face of MUNI Fraud.
North Face Girl didn’t pay her $2 fare, looks like.
So a crew of three SFMTA Inspectors had to take her down, for tout le monde to see.

But what happens when a cable car driver steals a six dollar fare, like something that happens all the time every day?
Do MUNI Inspectors ever hand out citations for that?
I don’t know.
