As seen in an apartment building:
I suppose this is better than nothing, but you prolly oughta have a garage afore you go all-electric, and many people don’t have garages in the bay area, of course. Anyway, this is better than nothing I suppose…
They’re gunning for you UBER LYFTERS, these days, the SFPD is, particularly on Market Street.
Harley Davidson = Motor Patrol = all what these popo do all day long is hand out moving violations, mostly. (They mostly come in the daytime, mostly.)
And remember, trade dress = extra scrutiny for you, sry.
I’ll tell you, I don’t have the balls to just park a ride on Market and then sass the SFMTA mounted sergeant(?) PCO’s what show up, but somebody at Sprig does, apparently. And no ticket was issued? Man, that’s lucky. (Delivering anything anywhere near the Financh is HARD, certainly.)
Can’t recall seeing two SFMTA employees on bikes at the same time, in all my years. You know, as Obama said at a fundraiser up in Pac Heights about rural Pennsylvanians who “cling” to their guns, our SFMTA clings to its cars and free parking spaces, oh well. Every SFGov agency is like this – they’ll agree in principal to get rid of / reduce their rides, but then when it comes time to actually do that, they’ll be all, “Well don’t count this car. It’s essential. Take away cars from Some Other Agency.” Poor poor SFGov, so addicted to cars it is…
Both these drivers wanted to turn left on northbound Church and left turns are allowed on weekends, but I can’t tell you which driver is turning left from the wrong lane.
There’s a similar situation on nearby Octavia “Boulevard” with right turns – drivers wonder if it’s legal to turn right from the middle lane. Apparently, putting up signs is considered “bad design,” which is ironic since all of Octavia Boulevard is bad design.
The street triangles of the Outside Lands become an issue for the SFPD:
You see, the problem here is that there isn’t any church around to persuade the SFMTA about how it’s OK to park next to a median, oh well…
Well, here you go, as ably told by San Francisco Chronicle scribe Carolyn Said:
And here’s the scene, yesterday:
Kind of cute, I suppose. Like something out of 1973’s Sleepers:
This passerby was fascinated – she couldn’t get enough of this:
And in the world capital of illegally parked Mercedes Benzes, what do we find on the sidewalks of the Outside Lands, of the Great Sand Wastes of the Middle Richmond, but this? The little robot took a while to think and then simply went around the scofflaw’s car, easy peasy:
Is this The Future?
