Absurdly Low 35 MPH Speed Limit on The 101 Freeway in Northern Frisco Finally Raised – Can You Guess the Limit Now?

Thursday, June 15th, 2017

[Isn’t it funny how ppl from SoCal say “the 101” when they want they want listeners to understand that it’s freeways we’re talking about while ppl from NorCal ALSO say “the 101” when they want they want listeners to understand that it’s freeways we’re talking about? Non? I guess not. Anyway, feel free to call 101 freeway the 101, even if you live in Frisco.]

40, it’s 40 MPH now. Still absurdly low, but now less absurdly.

Here’s how things used to be at 101 South in the Presidio – 35 MPH maximum. Slow, so slow+

And here’s how things are now on The World’s Slowest Freeway section:

Let’s call this a slight improvement:

There could be some thing where the CHP can’t give you a ticket for “speeding” at 42 MPH on a freeway, but IDK the deets on that.

Anyway, enjoy your 40 MPH autobahn, Frisco…

Mayor Ed Lee’s Under-the-I-80 Tent City 2017 Looks A LOT Like His Under-the-I-80 Tent City 2015-2016

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

Actually, it looks exactly the same, except there’s less of it.

2017:

It all started with preparations for Super Bowl L:

“They are going to have to leave,” Lee said of those sleeping along the city’s Embarcadero.

An Uber / Lyft Prius Hits a Pedestrian and Somehow Winds Up on the Shoulder of Inbound I-80 Near Pinole? – And Is This a Private Investigator?

Monday, April 3rd, 2017

As seen Friday afternoon, a few klicks southwest of Pinole:

The Prius on the left has UBER and Lyft trade dress. It appears to have hit somebody at speed.

The very similar Toyota Prius Hybrid on the right could be a fellow TNC driver, or an accident investigator the kind of which taxi companies send to accident scenes sometimes.

What happened here is a mystery to me.

Sonic Boom: Our Greater Bay Area Now has Five (5) SONIC DRIVE-INs – Photo As Seen in Cow Town – Is Oak Town Next?

Friday, January 13th, 2017

I’ve never had the Sonic myself – I’m too old/fat for that. But you young-uns have at it.

As seen in Vaca (cow) ville (town), which still has cows, but was named after Manuel Cabeza Vaca, of course.

Anyway, Oakland would seem to be an excellent fit for the Sonic – we’ll see…
