Tuesday, July 21st, 2015

I think this one will run the owner more than the ticket for “parking on the grass,” which will only cost you $22 these days.

Hanging ten is when the surfer positions the surfboard in such a way that the back of it is covered by the wave and the wave rider is free to walk to the front of the board and hang all ten toes over the nose of the board.

A Porsche was traveling eastbound on MLK at an unsafe speed when the driver ran off the road and collided with a tree.

A Possible Defense for the Famous Red Light Running SFMTA MUNI Bus Driver in Golden Gate Park

Monday, January 26th, 2015

Here’s the sitch.

But you can’t actually see the bus driver run the red in this video:

Is there an all-red phase in the signal timing of this intersection? I assume so, but I don’t know.

The yellow line shown is about 200 feet long. It’s possible that a MUNI bus could enter the intersection on a yellow and then take six or seven seconds to clear it.


Cars going the other way need to wait for traffic legally in the intersection to clear, under CA law, so even though you have a green light that doesn’t mean you necessarily have the right of way.

Car drivers, particularly those with a running start, need to be mindful of this.
