All right, you drive in California – that’s not just a privilege, it’s your birthright. So that means that you can “California stop,” you know, roll through, slowly, all day long all over San Francisco with impunity.
However, some of you don’t do it right, some of you roll on through at like 7 MPH, which might be OK late at night at well-lit, wide open intersections in giant parking lots, but that’s considered too fast for the Alamo Square area.
So, the popo just sit and wait out of view on Pierce. But they don’t hand out tickets for those people who roll through the stop sign with caution, oh no. They wait for a good customer, somebody who maintains a good clip while crossing over the crosswalk.
