Area Motorcycle Rider Drives As If He Were On A Fixie – Skidding About on a Locked Rear Wheel

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

I’ll tell you, I have a clear memory of fixie-riding Andy, gracefully pushing his locked rear wheel back and forth to kill speed coming down Oak Street.

Remember?

Good times.

Anyway, there’s another guy does the same thing, but on a motorcycle.

Like just for fun. On McAllister:

He also does wheelie stops. (I’d like to see a fixie bike rider do that.)

Hats off to both these gentlemen.

Turns Out That Skateboarding IS a Crime, or At Least It Is When You Turn Bush Street Into Pine Street

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

Like this fellow heading outbound down Nob Hill on Bush, which of course is a one-way inbound route.

Didn’t we just lose a skateboarder not too long ago on this very same hill? I think so.

Multiple tickets on this ride indicate that this otherwise-legal parking job will end up costing the driver three-figures.

How Should You Curb Your Wheels in San Francisco? Just Use the Water Test

Thursday, December 17th, 2009

When parking  in San Francisco, you should always curb your wheels. If you can’t tell whether you’re pointing uphill or down, just pour out a little water from your bottle into the gutter.

The way the water goes tells you which way the hill goes. Or just look at what all the other drivers on the block did. Easy peasy, right?

The driver of this VW Cabrio made the wrong choice, so a ticket from SFMTA was the result. Parking Control Officers will spot this infraction from a block away and then make a special trip just for you.
