The Slowest MEMBER of the Corrupt-Appearing “CHP 11-99 FOUNDATION” License Plate Holder Club

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

Oh there’s an appearance of corruption issue? OK, so we’ll just stop issuing license plate frames then:

Can drivers buy CHP leniency? License plate frames for donors to the 11-99 Foundation are seen by some as speeding-ticket insurance. The group will stop issuing them.

But the LA Times article above was from a decade ago.

Wouldn’t it be ironic, dont’cha think, if this foundation started selling license plate holders later on, you know after the whole controversy blew over?

Yes it would be, but that’s exactly what happened.

Oh well.

PAPER DRIVERS: If You Actually Pay Bridge Tolls Every Day in the Bay Area, You’re a Big Sucker – Presenting FasTrak UBER / Lyft-Style

Wednesday, March 14th, 2018

Gentle Reader, is these UBERs and Lyft cars new?

7J7C0329 copy

No, they is not.

7J7C0383 copy

And that means that they should have real license plates by now, right?

7J7C0391 copy

I think I saw all these cars on the Streets of San Francisco over the course of a few hours. There were more I came across, I’m sure.

But with great plates come great responsibility, meaning that with real metal plates you’ll get busted for not paying bridge tolls, due to license plate scanners.

Now I understand that paper driver is already a phrase, meaning something else, but to me, a paper driver is one who drives across as many local bridges per day as possible over the next year or two afore there’s a chance of actual enforcement starting.

We might get some penalty starting in 2019, but IDK how effective it will be.

Oh well.

Enjoy paying your bridge tolls, suckers, while the UBERs and Lyfts ahead and behind you cross over the bay for free…

TASER TASER TASER – Sign Up Now for These Official SFPD TASER Meetings – TASER TASER TASER

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

The cops can’t say TASER, but I can: TASER TASER TASER. (I can also say band aid and realtor.)

There are only 100 seats, so these free meetings will sell out, and maybe the first one already has, but IDK because I can’t get to the evite page. But you can, Gentle Reader, I’m sure of it. You’re very clever.

 “Community Input on CEDs (Conducted Energy Device)
Tue, Sep 12, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, 99 Grove Street, San Francisco, CA
The San Francisco Police Commission along with the SFPD and with the facilitation support of the Human Right’s Commission is inviting community members to weigh in, ask questions, share perspectives and voice concerns about whether CEDs (Conducted Energy Devices, also known as Tasers) should be considered as a force option for the Police Department. The meetings are also a platform to provide input on the draft policy (http://sanfranciscopolice.org/sites/default/files/Documents/PoliceCommission/police-commission-CED%20policy%20draft%20dated%2008%3A25%3A17%20%28%22clean%20version%29.pdf) to be presented for discussion at a future Police Commission meeting. We will have two meetings. First meeting is: Tuesday, September 12, 2017, 6pm- 8 pm @Bill Graham Auditorium, 99 Grove (http:/ /evite .me/kS846TMa7q) Because of the capacity limitations of this space, we ask those interested to register via Evite. For safety, we are limited to 100 attendees and will accept comments, feedback, questions and concerns by email sfpd.commission@sfgov.org or via the Commission’s Facebook and/or Twitter.

All the deets, in pdf format:

police-commission-CED policy draft dated 08-25-17 (-clean version)

Spot the former SF Police Commish who did a 180 on “Conducted Energy Devices” a while back. I think he was the critical vote.

And in the meantime, Frisco still has TASERs all over, they’re just not being used by the SFPD. Think of different LEOs what operate here, some in large numbers:

The 11-99 “CHP” Foundation: An Embarrassment to the State of California – A License to Speed in 2017

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

This outfit got a lot of criticism, so the CHP made them take the letters “CHP” off of their infamous license plate holders and then they said they’d stop isuing them, but it appears as if this program is still going strong in 2017.

Read all about it here, just keep scrolling down.

Most of the these license plate holders I see these days are fake anyway. And even if you bought a “real” one on ebay, you were (or you are, IDK) supposed to display your 11-99 FOUNDATION MEMBERSHIP card or secret decoder ring or whatever whenever you get pulled over for speeding in your speedy luxury car. (You know, IDK how this system was supposed to work in the first place. How can you look at it and not think, “Corruption, corruption?)

Anyway, fake or real, what these license plate holders appear to be saying is, “I like to drive fast in California.” And if I can figure that out, CA’s peace officers can figure that out as well.

Can You Buy A License to Speed?

The Bridge Toll-Evading Mercedes Benz and BMW Owners of Frisco

Friday, September 30th, 2016

(I didn’t take most of these particular shots.)

Anywho, what do we see here – do we see the three parked cars of the occupants of one unit of housing all carousing about license plate-free on the Streets of San Francisco?

img_1623-copy

I think so.

img_1617-copy

Are these people pulling a Steve Jobs? Are they driving registered vehicles hither and yon with one or two DMV plates in the trunk, you know, waiting to get pulled over by the popo and then it will be, what, “Oh, I’ve been meaning to put those things on my car. The dealership says I need a special bracket, or something” or something like that?

img_1621-copy

I’ll tell you, the reason why the owners of Italian exoticars drive about California without proper California registration and insurance is because of the crushing “use taxes” they would have to pay otherwise. So your expensive, impractical weekend car might cost you $10K or $20K just for CA registration for the first year and then many thousands per year for years after that. So you end up seeing people using Oregon plates or Nevada plates or Montana plates or whatever.

But OTOH, the reason why owners of German luxocars don’t have the plates what DMV sent them mounted front and rear, just speculating here, are:

  1. Eurocars aren’t made with tall square-ish American license plates in mind, so you might need a special bracket to mount them, and even though dealers are obligated to provide them…
  2. After they break, due to their Mickey Mouse construction, drivers don’t want to replace them due to…
  3. Car owners thinking that ugly U.S.-style plates mar the good looks of their Euro rides, and…

4. Bridge Toll Evasion

(Hey, what if you have just the back license plate on your car – do the Golden Gate Bridge people take images of you car from the back as well? IDK.)

Anyway, the best example of this would be a German car owner who improperly asked for a handicapped placard and was improperly given one by a chiropractor and then uses that placard to park for free all day long at an SFMTA parking meter in Frisco, say someplace close to the Financh but not too close, maybe by that Safeway on Washington BUT ALSO doesn’t have license plates mounted in order to evade the $6.50 daily Golden Gate Bridge toll BUT ALSO has an insidery CHP 11-99 Foundation license plate holder so that the CHP officer who pulls you over already knows that you’ve personally given thousands of dollars to the families of CHP officers so s/he will go easy on you “this time” for speeding on the 101 without license plates BUT ALSO has been doing this for years and years.

You know, something like this:

After all, you’re special.

So very special

It wasn’t that I didn’t try
It’s not the kind of thing, that you buy
Written in my destiny
Life is but a dream
Covered by the sky
Stop saying that you’re calling time
Look at your life before you start on mine
I’m not the kind of person that you need
I’m sick of trying
I mean that it’s over

It was always special
It was like water down the drain
I’m intoxicated
Every time I hear your name
I try to remember
But nothing is the same
It was always special
it was like water down the drain

Patiently you wait for me
You’re so blind
I thought it couldn’t be
Then changed my mind
Drowning in the endless sea
Line all those lines
The traces of your memory
Don’t belong with mine

HoistCam? Napa CHP HoistCam! – May 4th, 2015 – Rescue at Tennessee Beach, Marin County

Monday, May 4th, 2015

A very Coast Guard-style rescue up in Marin County:

“On May 4, 2015 at about 1:15 PM, CHP Helicopter H-32 responded to assist the National Parks Service and the Southern Marin Fire Department with a rescue. Earlier, a woman was out on Tennessee Beach and was swept out to sea. She managed to swim back onto a cliff, but the cliff was inaccessible to rescuers. H-32 was able to hoist her to safety, and also evacuated an NPS lifeguard and ranger to safety, as the waves became too treacherous. Another example of multi-agency cooperation in the efforts to keep everyone safe!
