Nothing beats the Oakland Warriors + the San Francisco Giants + the Santa Clara 49ers all together, man.

Lyft Driver vs. (Car-Free) Sunday Streets

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017

Not sure how dude managed to get himself smack dab in the middle of Sunday Streets Western Addition 2017, but here he is, with a few WTF stares and at least one whatsamatteryou hand gesture:

And then more gesturing, as seen with this official Volunteer, and dude was off up Baker, which I think was his goal from the beginning:

(I should say that this amount of yelling and whatnot is a lot mellower than when out-of-town drivers saw a Critical Mass Friday night bicycle parade for the first time, like on Market, back in the day…)

Anyway, that’s how a Lyft driver reacts upon seeing a Sunday Streets for the first time.

UBER Driver from Merced, CA Thinks the Green Part of Scott is for the Use of UBER Drivers

Seems there was some kind of rush to queue up for the Fell Street ARCO, a watering hole for many many UBER Lyfters, due to its low low prices.

Anyway, this part of Scott is bikes-only lane…

The Joys of Watching a Self-Driving UBER Volvo Cautiously Make Its Way Down Irving in The Sunset

Friday, September 1st, 2017

Here we go, Irving Street on a dreaded sunny day in the Middle Sunset or the Inner Sunset or the Outer Sunset – I’ve heard this nabe described as all three:

This area is a tad less difficult for a poorly-developed robot car to drive on than, say, Clement in the Inner Richmond, but there are plenty of bad pedestrians and illegal parkers on this part of Irving as well of course.

This seemed a touch early to be halfway through the intersection, given the position of these peds:

And it was hard to tell what this Volvo was thinking after seeing it go for a few blocks.

Like IMO, this start was a bit abrupt, as if the driver dozed off for a few seconds and then all of a sudden woke up and said let’s go let’s go:

You know what, I’m think that this triple brake push at a four-way stop is an indication of something not being kosher. I cry foul.

And you know, when I teach people how to drive, I emphasize the importance of creeping a little bit at first to show others intent – like all right, I’m going now. This rushed start didn’t match the otherwise cautious, deliberate conduct.

Of course, this UBER drives better than most on the Streets of San Francisco.

What compels people to start queuing up two hours afore a joint opens? Is this a winning strategy?

Poor UBER Lyft Driver Gets Pwned for $192 for Overnight Parking in Golden Gate Park / Parking at “Car-Free” Saturday

Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

Perhaps not an UBER driver, but you can never tell. A lot of them swing both ways.

What was this driver thinking leaving this ride in Golden Gate Park? IDK

The entrance at 7th Avenue and Lincoln states that towing is a possibility for overnight parkers.

This side of the sign might be hard to read from a distance…

…but this side isn’t.

Oh well, a couple hundred of dollars later, a lesson learned…

UBER Driver Lost in Frisco REALLY Wants to Make an Illegal Left Off of Masonic

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

Charging down Masonic at a sloooow rate of speed, eventually making a legal turn the next block down.

And this UBER Lyfter lives in town, so imagine how all those people who drive in from Santa Cruz drive.

Anyway, multiply this by 40,000 and you have part of the reason why traffic has increased so so much recently…
