I guess Bro here just drove a rental Prius to somebody’s home, took out his Bianchi and is now heading home? I think that’s how things work.

Vox Populi:

unsafe neighborhood

on the corner of Crack Den Ave, and Homeless Urine Drive

my car in a lot that states ‘DO NOT LEAVE VALUABLES IN CAR’ all over the place (which gives you an indication of how safe this part of town is)

Chinatown Park and Ride: Not a Bad Deal If You Want to Park in the Financh on Weekends for $3, Sort Of

Here’s the sign:

And here’s the program.

And here’s what Yelp has to say.

I didn’t know about this deal- now I know why people are lining up to get into the Golden Gateway Garage before it opens on Saturday mornings.

Seems like a good deal for those who want to while away the hours in C-Town on a Saturday…

If You Think Frisco Govt Moves Slowly, Just Park Your Car in Front of a Garage Door – You WILL Get Towed, VERY QUICKLY

Wednesday, May 25th, 2016

What’s in this scene? Well, there are two BMWs and one Prius playing supporting roles, but the stars are the Subaru wagon blocking the driveway of the garaged Audi.

Man, it’s go-time, cause yoga pants has her iPhone out – that means that a city-dispatched tow truck is already on its way. This particular Subie was gone with a quickness:

I think the goal for SFGov is to have a tow truck on scene within a half hour. That’s lightning fast action for our normally somnolent City Family.

Anyway, this is Life on the Streets of San Francisco…

An Experiment in “Traffic Calming?” – Main Entrance of Japantown Parking Garage on Post Closed – “USE GEARY ENTRANCE”

Not that I care, cause I don’t use this garage, but this will certainly affect traffic in the area, for better or worse.

And I’ll tell you, that sign looks professionally made, so I assume that this entrance will be shut in the future as well, perhaps on weekends or busy times? Just guessing here…

A Hobbit Jail Under the Stairs Near Post Street – Not a Good Place To Be When the Next Big One Comes

Tuesday, December 8th, 2015

Redeveloping the Fillmore was a horrible horrible idea is what I think when I see all the concrete and clay and general decay around Post and Buchanan.

Oh look, a big parking garage – this is the last place you’d want to be in an earthquake, but there’s no money to fix anything, oh well.

And this cubby hole here needs to be locked up, else people would sleep here, of course:
