More or less:
You want to get into this – well, we can get into this. You know, sometime.
Here’s the etching on the tombstone:
“Update: The SFpark pilot evaluation has been released and changes to data feed, mobile apps, and web map remain. Demand-responsive rate adjustments will continue in existing SFpark areas. The SFMTA will use the results of the evaluation to develop a proposal for expanding the SFpark approach to the SFMTA’s other meters, lots and garages in the city.”
But did we really need to pay people to bury sensors under the pavement? Nope! Oh, they’re all dead now, batteries expired, just sitting under the surface doing nothing? Yep!
There are many ways to skin a cat, Brother. This “futuristic” and expensive way was the wrong way.
Oh, and speaking of the Feds, why do Law Enforcement Officials come to Frisco and get their guns stolen from their cars, over and over and over again, despite all the warnings, despite our well-earned reputation?
And, you know, as promised, we can get into why it’s still hard to park in some areas of Frisco and why in other areas you can see an entire block of metered spaces with basically no cars at all.
I have no objections to market rate pricing, but SFPark was a big fail whale.

Here’s one way to set it up:
The Wall Street Journal approves, anyway.
Here’s the Cyclone set in action:
And here’s a mish-mash of two other sets:
Oh, made in China, natch.
IDK, read the comments section in Amazon for a few minutes and then You Make The Call.
I myself paid on the low end of Amazon’s absurdly wide pricing range, so I’m not complaining…
Don’t look at reported incidents, just look at real life.
Anyway, the silvery piece of cardboard looked white, so this driver was in the spirit of July 4th 2016:
Some are just giving up fixing their windows, it seems, in this year especially. Most passersby will not try to get into your car of course, and the ones who do just might have done it anyway, so what’s the point in hurrying up and repairing the damage today, or this week, or this year?
Cf. this long-term fix. See? Much less festive, but actually a pretty good job:
On It Goes…
As seen in NoPA, at the Top Of The Hill:
Don’t simply look at police statistics, just talk to people in the auto glass industry and ask how busy they are these days. Busy busy busy!
