Frisco’s Smallest Statuary: Riled-Up NIMBYs Celebrate Winning “The Freeway Revolt” – Raising the Roof on GoughMonday, July 20th, 2015
Ironically, freeways are a safer way of getting about. Oh well.
Here it is, from across the street in NIMBY Stronghold

The Dashcams of Taiwan: Incredible Video of the Crash of Transasia Flight GE235 – Sullenberger-Style River Landing Saves Some Lives?Wednesday, February 4th, 2015
Nothing goes unrecorded by the car dash cams of Taiwan:
TransAsia Airways Flight 235 looks to have lost a lot of power from its left engine. But assuming that the propeller blades of the failing engine were feathered to lessen drag, there’s no reason why a properly-loaded ATR 72 shouldn’t have been able to climb out to a safe altitude using the remaining engine.
There appears to be a lot of data recorded on this crash, so they mystery should be solved soon…
Fulton Street Tableau: Aggressive Pedestrian, Helpful Driver – A “Freeway Revolt” Pushes The Richmond Farther AwayMonday, January 5th, 2015
Man, you won’t catch me crossing Fulton just hoping that drivers will see me and stop. Oh no.
But this woman took the plunge. See the driver signalling to others? That’s what it takes sometimes:
I don’t know, we had The Freeway Revolt so now we have streets like Fulton acting as substitute freeways.
The SFMTA spends its money inefficiently, so it says it can only afford to install something like five traffic lights per year. (Oh, it’s so hard, it’s so hard to do, they say. No it’s not, but anyway…)
So, we don’t want freeways and we won’t tolerate any transportation-related deaths (or we won’t tolerate any transportation-related deaths starting in 2024). This doesn’t add up.
So, slow down Fulton if you want, but what that does is push the Outer Richmond farther and farther away from San Francisco…
These things are huge.
First there was just one giant billboard extolling the virtues of Budweiser, and now there are two.
Well played, Budweiser.

I don’t know, but SFGov is powerless, it appears.
And here’s how things look in 2014 – nothing’s changed:
