Vaunted BMW i8 Hybrid on the Streets of San Francisco – Tacky “Keigwins Safety Car” Blocks the Box in the Financh

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015

Isn’t it ironic, dontcha think? It’s like rain on your wedding day, in’nt? (Actually, it’s not at all like rain on your wedding day – that’s what makes it ironic.)

How about three? Three cylinders.

Apparently, that’s good enough to allow this hybrid the carpool lane.

Presumably, the owner has left it there for a few days, not realizing her mistake.

So, what’s stopping the SFMTA from citing this car every hour for the same violation? There must be some internal policy, one that I’m not aware of.
