Hit and Run Driver (People Assume) vs. a Parked BMW in the Richmond

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

Pasersby in the Richmond, where the car is king, seemed real pissed off at this one.

The debris trail tells the story – this ride must have been clouted at a pretty good clip and, of course, on the wrong side of the street:

The Most Common Sighting in Nighttime Frisco is a Toyota Prius Going About Without Its Lights Own – WHY WHY WHY?

Now you see them….

IDK, man. The brake lights on Priuses work without any effort on behalf of today’s overtaxed drivers, so why don’t the headlights and taillights work like automatically? I mean the phone(s) inside this ride certainly know when it’s nighttime, so why not the much more expensive car as well?

What’s that, you don’t want Toyota to miss out on “upselling” the “luxury” of automatic headlights?

OK fine. But Prius drivers already need extra help, right? And what with the Lyft and the UBER these days, all those drivers from Modesto and whatnot, they need help too.

Right?

Living in Frisco: Ten On-Street Parking Spaces, Five Broken Car Windows Over a Ten Day Period

Tuesday, January 24th, 2017

This would be on about 100 feet of Ashbury in the 94117, both sides of the street, so generally you’ll have 4 or 5 rides parked there on both sides, so that’s ten spaces.

What do you think the report rate is for people who’ve lost a bunch of windows the past several years? I think it’s not high. So when the media / popo report on a reduction of car break-ins, I think they should take pains to specify it’s the reported rate what’s fallen.

Anyway, my advice would be to leave your glove box and consoles and coin trays open at night…

Long time ago I talked with an IT manager at the state DMV – he said they had to make sure that three-letter combinations like S-E-X and A-S-S couldn’t ever be used on a CA license plate. But I guess 666, the number of the beast, is A-OK? And he was like, sure, no prob. So On It Goes
