Another local discovery from San Francisco photographer James Corrigan:

You do the math kids, but that’s something like 30 cents per mile, you know, with sales tax ‘n stuff:
But they feel like they’re already broken in from the get-go, so that’s gotta be worth something…
These days, the best you can hope for is a new car merely something like a G6, like a G6.
But in my day, the car brand Pontiac was still alive and it made actual G6 cars.
See? Perhaps they were rushing to meet up with the Mint Police?
And postal inspectors (they call themselves police? OK fine) still drive them around, apparently.
And those people on Oprah still drive them as well, I s’pose…
Masonic Update: San Francisco’s Useless (But Quite Profitable) Street-Sweeping System Tickets This Car Every WeekThursday, September 11th, 2014
This Hyundai was abandoned months ago, so our SFMTA dutifully tickets it every week on street cleaning day.
Recently, a Denver boot was put on, see?
This is right across the street from the TJ’s.*
Either the owner will pay the boot fee soon or else a tow truck will come and then the owner will be on the hook for thousands if s/he wants his/her car back ever again.
Except do you think the owner, who obviously has some sort of life issue going on, has a spare couple thou?
*See how dirty the street is underneath the car? Look at all that garbage that piled up over the past nine weeks! Thank Gaia for street sweeping!
News: “Increased Internet Access at the Library!” – Plus, Our SFPL is Waiving Lost Card Fee – Plus Free WiFiFriday, September 5th, 2014
Here’s a fresh press release from Our San Francisco Public Library:
“Increased Internet Access at the Library!
Effective Sept. 5, library computer users will have greater access to Internet-enabled computers throughout the library system. Computer users will be able to reserve up to two one-hour sessions per day, as opposed to the current limit of one hour per day. The second hour is contingent upon availability. The increased time is in response to patron need and popular demand, and provides better service and utilization of library resources.
“The Library is dedicated to free and equal access to information,” said City Librarian Luis Herrera. “We believe that these additional hours will better serve our library patrons.”
In addition, most of the Main Library’s Internet Express computers, will have increased time limits, from 15 minutes to 30 minutes. Free Wi-Fi is available for both card holders and non-card holders at the Main Library and all branches for those who wish to bring their own devices. In addition, library patrons may be able to borrow a laptop computer for in-library use at branches when desktop computers are not available.
All library users are encouraged to apply for a free library card. Use of library computers is free to card holders, and, as part of the initiative to provide more access to our library users, Library staff will waive the lost card fee and issue a free replacement card through June 2015.”
What’s the damage to San Francisco if this Google Maps car blocked a DPW street sweeper for 35 feet worth of Fell Street? IDK? A penny? Ten cents? It’s just a few leaves down there, right?
But what’s the cost? $68.50. The Maps Car driver planned on moving this rig before 8:00 AM Tuesday, but, you know, sometimes you forget to move the car. Anyway, this car got ticketed, with extreme prejudice:
If parking tickets are so great, why shouldn’t the SFMTA charge $168.50 or $268.50? Why should SF have the world’s most expensive parking tickets, along with America’s slowest big city transit system? Why are we so unlucky?
