David Bellona’s Street Photo Wins the Internet So Far for 2014: “SF HUNGRY, MARIN DRUNK”

Friday, January 10th, 2014

[UPDATE: The car’s name is REDACTED. REDACTED’s owner is REDACTED  of the city of  REDACTED, CA. REDACTED is the publisher of REDACTED, per REDACTED.

Here’s what REDACTED says about REDACTED’s “DRUNK” license plate:

“I realize many people feel this says bad things about me. I feel that says bad things about them”

OK then.]

[UPDATE II: Alleged super-private personal information that was not actually super-private personal information but, in fact, was useful to prove to skeptical MSM-types that people can actually have a personalized license plate what spells out “DRUNK,” REDACTED. Boy, aren’t we touchy touchy! Awfully touchy for somebody having that on his license plate in fucking Marin, the world capital of drunk drivers. I guarantee that every cop that sees your plate does a double-take. And I thought you had posted a little ditty about your plate (because you had). But if you want to trade your exciting high-profile lifestyle ride for my boring, unnamed and aging Land Cruiser, well, let’s do it, if it would help you out if your shame spiral.  In any event, REDACTED.  (In mitigation, REDACTED is NOT the publisher of Gannett Co Inc’s The Bold Italic.)]

This shot from Mark DeVito has got it all.

Indeed, this is no place for a convertible!

Let’s hope that this driver doesn’t wind up on the Marin County Sheriff’s Public Booking Log any more than the average Marinite driver…

What It’s Like to Travel Around San Francisco During New Year’s Eve, When the SFPD is Especially Tolerant

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013

How many SFPD cops saw this maneuver, do you think, when a partying driver treated McAllister Street at Franklin like a one-way street?

Several.

But this kind of behavior is tolerated on NYE in the 415 because the cops, well, the cops will generallyhave their hands full with other stuff.

So, drive however you want and soon enough you and your tummy full of alcohol will back get home to the Marina or the Marin safely:

Probably.

Impressive volume, flow rate and stream cohesiveness:

Now here’s the end to this vignette.

Is It OK for This Trader Joe’s Shopper to Ride Her Bike on the Sidewalks of Geary in the Inner Richmond? Sure

Monday, June 25th, 2012

Why not?

She seemed to be doing it responsibly, and she was on a stretch of road famous for drunk drivers, and she just left another road famous for drunk drivers.

I hope she never sees this peer-pressure video.

You Go Girl.

You go slowly and you’ll be fine.

 

Halloween in the Castro 2011 a Huge Success – City Defies City Family, Shows Up in Costume Despite the Official Ban

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011

[UPDATE: Appears as if the City Family actually fought back against the revelers with water trucks. So much for the “zero tolerance” edict from Police Chief Greg Suhr. Anyway, look for Halloween in the Castro 2012 to be twice as big. You’ll see…]

To review, here’s the official word from San Francisco’s Gay Goebbels, “City Family” Minister of Propaganda David Perry, about Halloween in the Castro 2011:

“THERE WILL BE NO HALLOWEEN CELEBRATION IN THE CASTRO in 2011″

“…Staying Home for Halloween is the ‘in’ thing to do…”

And here’s the same message from a local media outfit, you know, the one owned by gay-hating, evolution-unbelieving Republican Philip Anschutz:

“Halloween bash in San Francisco’s Castro won’t rise from dead this year”

But nevertheless, cool people got dressed up and headed to the Castro last night (pants not necessarily required), just like back in the day.

Like these people waiting for the 24 Divisadero bus yesterday evening:

Actually, the Castro was hopping. Via Owenchristoff:

Fun Halloween! Castro was a zoo. Glad to be back in the quiet Richmond dist.”

Bay Citizen writer Scott James brought it all home for us last night:

Official party? Nope. Who cares. Crowds converging now on San Francisco’s Castro for Halloween”

And there’s this, from NilesHD:

“Although there’s no official San Francisco Halloween anymore in the Castro, that’s where most people go to celebrate Halloween !!”

Now the way to explain this is by noting that the City Family doesn’t really benefit from people going to the Castro district on Halloween, so it suppresses turnout by lying to people.

Simply.

(If Halloween were an event that the City Family cared about, then things would be much different. It’d be more like the sitch with the America’s Cup 2013, you know, Rich People Like Boats, so it’s full speed ahead with AC13. Oh well.)

Now what’s this, is it the campaign of, speak of the Devil, quasi-City Family member David Chiu on the streets of the Castro last night?

Yep:

And they weren’t alone, of course:

Via Luxomedia

Happy Halloween 2011, San Francisco.

See you next year!

Excitement in the Western Addition: Drunk Driver “John” Lucky to Have Law Student Watching His Back

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

Famous Tenderloin Blogger The Tens wasn’t exactly chasing ambulances in the Western Addition, but no matter, he was keeping track of things. Be sure to read about his recent run-in with a reckless driver near Alamo Square in the Western Addition.

And here’s some helpful legal advice for when you go all Mel Gibson.

(Oh, and I totally want that 1970′s-era T100 Toyota Corona. It’s rear-wheel drive so getting it back on the street would be a piece of cake.)

 

This is the White 2009 Hyundai Elantra Involved in This Morning’s Fatal Collision on Masonic near Turk

Friday, May 6th, 2011

The San Francisco Chronicle’s Henry K. Lee has the early details and Terry McSweeny of KGO-TV has a video report.

This is the lane that goes through St. Mary’s between Stanyan and Shrader:

The owner of the white Hyundai (CA 6HOT660) resides in the Chinatown / Nob Hill area, one might assume.

And here’s one of the cars that driver Jose Jimenez hit on Clayton near Fell Street when he was traveling from the hit and run scene to St. Mary’s. This two-ton minivan was pushed a foot or two so the impact speed must have been fairly high:
