My first impulse, upon seeing this rental car in my ‘hood, was to exclaim:
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 OneTuesday, 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.
Accept no substitutes…
The Pro-Bernie Sanders “BernBus” (Metaphorically) Runs Out of Gas at the Fell Street DMV, San Francisco, California, USAMonday, 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…
What’s This, San Francisco has “Reduced Vehicle Ownership” Compared with 2005? How the SFMTA is WRONG WRONG WRONG on ThisThursday, 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:
And of course that’s higher than 2005:
(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?
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.
*Total Cost Of Employment
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…
Well, I suppose it’s three peds, actually. Now let’s see how they do:
The two peds on the left act properly and the jogger ped does not.
There’s room for improvement at this intersection, SFGov/SFMTA.
“Sheriff Mirkarimi Confirms Valid Driver License
San Francisco, CA – Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi today announced that the matter regarding his driver license has been resolved.
“I used the public phone numbers for the DMV and traversed their process. I found them to be efficient and helpful, and after explaining the matter and filing the proper paperwork the matter has been resolved.”
Sheriff Mirkarimi was informed for the first time on Monday that the DMV had suspended his driver license, except for his ability to drive for his employment duties, for a failure to file an accident report. In fact, the Sheriff immediately reported the accident to his insurance company as well as to SFSD personnel. He was informed by his insurance company that the matter would be processed. The Sheriff learned only yesterday that his insurance provider did not file a report with the DMV as he believed. That report has now been filed.
Neither the Sheriff nor his insurance company had been notified by the DMV or any other entity regarding a license suspension or restriction. The Sheriff’s insurance coverage has remained uninterrupted.
Sheriff Mirkarimi was involved in a non-injury accident on 10/2/14. There was no damage to the City car that the Sheriff was driving but there was claimed damage to the other car. He provided his personal insurance information to the other driver as there was no City insurance information accessible in the City car.
Sheriff Mirkarimi will work with City administration on completing any remaining requirements.
Press Release: “Statement on the Status of Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi’s Driver License” – The Importance of DMV Form SR1Monday, August 10th, 2015
I don’t know, I tell people to be sure to file their SR1 form with the DMV all the time, but nobody seems to care all that much about it. They say, “I’ll let my insurance company take care of that.” That doesn’t exactly match the rules – oh well.
Anyway, here’s the latest on this one.
“Statement on the Status of Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi’s Driver License
San Francisco, CA — Sheriff Mirkarimi has only learned today, through press inquiries, that the DMV suspended his license — except for his ability to drive for his employment duties — for his failure to properly report an accident. Neither the Sheriff nor his insurance company has ever been notified by the DMV or any other entity regarding a license suspension or restriction.
Sheriff Mirkarimi was involved in a non-injury accident on 10/2/14. The accident took place while he was driving his City vehicle. The non-injury accident resulted as the Sheriff was merging with other traffic to avoid a closed lane. There was no damage to the City car but there was damage to the other car. The Sheriff traded information with the other driver, including insurance information. He provided his personal insurance information to the other driver as there was no City insurance information accessible in the City car.
The Sheriff immediately reported the incident to his insurance company as required. Sheriff Mirkarimi was informed by his insurance company that they would take care of the matter. He has confirmed with his insurance company that his coverage has always remained in effect.
Sheriff Mirkarimi received a citation for a traffic violation by a San Francisco Police Officer in June. The Sheriff was not advised of any license suspension or restriction at that time. This citation has been resolved.
Sheriff Mirkarimi is working immediately to resolve the issue of his restricted license. He has contacted his insurance representatives to determine why the proper report was not submitted to the DMV. Sheriff Mirkarimi is expediting the resolution of the matter.”
