SFGov will do whatever it wants to do until it gets sued…

Don’t try this on a Tuesday…
Northbound Masonic at Fell:
There are a lot of places to stop here. Where you’re supposed to stop is the stop line before the crosswalk, but this driver chose the far end of the crosswalk.
Here’s the thing – once you’ve crossed over your stop line, you’ve committed yourself to the intersection and therefore you need to clear it before cross traffic starts.
There’s no waiting option.
If you want to hang out longer, do it before your stop line, no matter how far back from the intersection the SFMTA / DPW has put the stop line…
Apparently, some millionaire land-owning burgers down in San Mateo, specifically San Carlos, specifically east San Carlos, right next to the 101 are/were mad about taking one for the team, about losing the parking spaces in front of their hou$e$ for the Greater Good.
I know that because I saw all these signs. You see, it’s OUR PARKING SPACES vs. THE CONCERNS OF EVERYBODY ELSE IN THE WORLD.
Or, as they put it, it’s CARS vs. KIDS:
The problem with this is that all roads in California are highways, pretty much.
So, in fact, HOLLY STREET IS A HIGHWAY.
And actually it has it’s own freeway offramp – some people might think that’s a good thing, IDK
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!
Stanley Roberts has the deets on this video from Davet Mohmmed:
I don’t know, every street on Great Highway has a timed traffic signal, but that’s not enough for this dude, so his routine is to cross in the middle of the block.
What’s that, the term “jaywalking” should be in quote marks because the only reason it’s agin the law is because of some conspiracy from 80 years ago? All right, well, gee, I’ve only heard that one about 150 times now, Gentle “Urbanist,” but what do you want, you want to make jaywalking legal? All right, but then more peds will die – is that what you want? OK fine.
