The Most Common Sighting in Nighttime Frisco is a Toyota Prius Going About Without Its Lights Own – WHY WHY WHY?Friday, February 24th, 2017
Now you see them….
…and now you don’t:
IDK, man. The brake lights on Priuses work without any effort on behalf of today’s overtaxed drivers, so why don’t the headlights and taillights work like automatically? I mean the phone(s) inside this ride certainly know when it’s nighttime, so why not the much more expensive car as well?
What’s that, you don’t want Toyota to miss out on “upselling” the “luxury” of automatic headlights?
OK fine. But Prius drivers already need extra help, right? And what with the Lyft and the UBER these days, all those drivers from Modesto and whatnot, they need help too.
This is how we live, in 2016:
You think these ppl were just parked, checking the Facebook? Nope, they were driving at about 20 MPH inbound on JFK Drive in Golden Gate Park. That’s why the hands are on the steering wheels and the phones are held up high.
Hey, do UBER drivers go about with handicap placards hanging from the rear view? Yes, some do.
Anyway, here’s the PCO again. How much time pressure is this person under if she’s fiddling with her ticketing assistance device whilst driving?
What’s that, SFMTA – you don’t have quotas, but your employees act as if they do? Sure seems that way…
Supervisor Scott Wiener’s Transportation Issue – Shamed by Stanley Roberts – Potential Senators Behaving Badly?Monday, September 12th, 2016
Obviously, Supervisor Scott Wiener needs a driver to squire him around Frisco (and the very small slice of San Mateo County what he pretends to actually care aboot these days, eh?).
Of course, if I were Scott Wiener, I’d be all, “Man, I don’t even own an aging silver Nissan.” Or something. But no, he simply ignored this situation.
Or I would have taken these incidents as a wake-up call. And then have gotten a volunteer to drive me to my daily engagements.
Now this sitch here I don’t understand, you know fully:
Perhaps Scott Wiener should clear things up for us, you know, explain what his issues are here. (IDK, maybe somebody stole his Nissan and then parked it here – who knows. Or maybe he was so busy texting that he doesn’t really know what he’s doing IRL anymore.)
But why would such a sanctimonious “urbanist” even own a car in the first place, in Frisco of all places?
“W: What I will say is my perspective is neither the SFMTA or SFPD takes double-parking seriously. And I don’t say that lightly. I’m a fan of both agencies. I work with them. I believe SFPD and SFMTA are committed to Vision Zero. There are some really good people within SFPD who do want to see it happen. But double parking is one area where both agencies have just failed… it’s private automobiles, it’s taxis, it’s garbage trucks… it’s an unending situation. They cause traffic jams, they block Muni, they block the bike lane, it undermines our entire transportation system and makes our streets more dangerous. It is one of my significant frustrations.”
Scott Wiener – sell your car or get a driver.
A Tale of Two Recent Photos: Distracted Driving – Supervisor (and “Urbanist!”) Scott Wiener(?) + SFMTA PCO + Uber Driver with Handicapped PlacardMonday, April 11th, 2016
Let’s start with Future Senator and Current Urbanist Supervisor Scott Wiener, you know, if this from KevMo is accurate.
Moving on, to this. Some deets on the PCO here and now onto the Uber driver. Uh, what’s he doing? Is he holding a phone up high so his eyes can easily switch back and forth from his device and The Road Ahead? IDK. And hey, what would be a nicer gift for an Uber Lyft driver than a handicapped placard? I’ve never seen this. Gee, I bet that really cuts down on the parking hassles one might have Ubering about Frisco.
Anyway, this is How We Live Now in 2016
Exactly Which Handheld Device is This MUNI DPT PCO Operating Illegally While Driving? – Are SFMTA Quotas Really This Bad?Thursday, April 7th, 2016
IDK, is this illegal? She was driving her INTERCEPTOR scooter about 20 MPH inbound on JFK in GGP the other day.
Is this the machine what allows her to ticket parkers? She doesn’t have enough time to process tickets whilst dismounted?
Or is this some kind of GPS, which might be legal to operate in CA these days, based on the latest judicial interpretations, you know, maybe? Or it’s a cell phone and she’s calling in an emergency that’s important enough to call in but not important enough to stop for, and then it’s legal?
And there aren’t quotas for PCOs at the SFMTA? Perhaps they’re just targets and guidelines?
What kind of operation is this?
Osculate Then Aviate: Aptly Named “Kiss ‘N Fly” Option at SFO Isn’t Actually All That Useful, It Would SeemTuesday, January 12th, 2016
Here it is, for dropping off your “loved ones” at SFO:
And here’s the map:
IDK, man. This doesn’t seem like all that great an option, so like I don’t get this, man.
I know what you’re thinking – you’re thinking, But Will It Drift?
Well, with plastic wrapped around the tires, the answer is YES
