Our Fell Street DMV is a Hotbed of Bicycle Theft, For Some Reason

Friday, August 19th, 2016

This is from yesterday, but it’s been like this for decades:

Back in the day, you’d see broken U-locks (which you didn’t necessarily want to leave on scene and you definitely didn’t want to get caught with) in the bushes. But these days, there’s less effort and more reward in leaving the lock alone and simply taking parts, oh well…

Why Do So Many ZIPCAR Rental Cars have Out-of-State License Plates?

Friday, July 29th, 2016

My first impulse, upon seeing this rental car in my ‘hood, was to exclaim:

‘Sup Arizona? How you likin’ the rain, girl?

My second impulse was to ask, again, “What’s up with all the ‘Zona plates, Avis?”

Is it so much easier to register your ride in Arizona? IDK

Do regular Californians have the right to run Arizona plates in Frisco for week after week, month after month? Hell no.

Who will investigate this Watergate?

Now That It’s March, You Can Assume That the Blooming Cherry Trees You See Are Not Actually Plum – Oh, Here’s One

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016

The fake cherry trees of January are now a deep purple, ’cause they’re plum trees.

That means that the cherry trees you see these days are real cherry.

The Pro-Bernie Sanders “BernBus” (Metaphorically) Runs Out of Gas at the Fell Street DMV, San Francisco, California, USA

Monday, March 21st, 2016

You know, metaphorically:

California doesn’t really have much input on presidential elections (and even this year, we participate more by giving money, rather than by voting). If only Bernie had had more fuel in the tank…

All the deets.

What’s This, San Francisco has “Reduced Vehicle Ownership” Compared with 2005? How the SFMTA is WRONG WRONG WRONG on This

Thursday, February 18th, 2016

Here you go, from CBS SF:

“The number of vehicles towed decreased during the current five year contract with AutoReturn from 71,000 in 2005 to 42,000 in 2015. SFMTA officials said this was due to factors including increased compliance from drivers, reduced vehicle ownership…

OK, let’s add them up. The latest numbers from CA DMV show an ESTIMATED VEHICLES REGISTERED BY COUNTY for Frisco being:

481,790 (leaving out the “trailers,” as one does)

That’s calendar 2014.

Of course that’s higher than 2013:

477,314

And of course that’s higher than 2005:

452,813

(And this doesn’t keep track of all the very towable tourist rides about town and all the unregistered vehicles all over the 415 with license plates from Oregon and Nevada and whathaveyou – I’ll tell you, the number of those vehicles are UP in SF as well.)

Don’t the “urbanist” urbonauts running our SFMTA know this off the top of their heads?

Nope.

Of course they do know how to spend our money – the TCOE* for whomever uttered our SFMTA’s bogus allegation about “reduced vehicle ownership” in SF has gotta be anywhere from $150k (or so) ON UP, perhaps $200k+

[Upon completion, the READER should understand that REDUCED VEHICLE OWNERSHIP over the past decade is a MYTH perpetrated by the SFMTA for WHATEVER REASON]

Thank you, drive through.

Our CA DMV Takes Time Out to Promote “AGRICULTURE” – Food, Fiber, Fuel, Flora

See that? Our state workers are unwittingly venturing into the Food v. Fuel debate.

All right, I’m going to go eat some corn, or go for a drive, or something…

A Tale of Two Pedestrians: WHO’LL BE THE NEXT JOGGER TO GO FROM OAK & MASONIC DIRECT TO SFGH?

Friday, August 28th, 2015

Well, I suppose it’s three peds, actually. Now let’s see how they do:

See that?

The two peds on the left act properly and the jogger ped does not.

As per usual…

There’s room for improvement at this intersection, SFGov/SFMTA.

Just saying.
