Better Know Your Lovable Safety Nerds: It’s a Neighborhood Emergency Response Team (NERT) Party!

Monday, August 6th, 2012

Here’s the scene in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle (which I argue is a part of Golden Gate Park for the same reason that the Idaho, Oklahoma, and Florida panhandles are a part of their respective states. But anywho…)

Can you see the Neighborhood Emergency Response Team (NERT) people having an exclusive party complete with vests and ornamental hats / helmets?

And I thought, wow, I can see some writing on the balloons, so one of them must have “logistics” written on it, and I was proven correct. It’s the yellow one, I think.

I don’t know, in my opinion NERT is too involved with local politics.

Oh yeah, and I don’t like the word “neighborhood” in there – sounds a bit NIMBY to me.

JMO.

I’ll just say that this scene would look less comical if it didn’t have the yellow police tape in there to keep out, who, the nearby homeless people or the hippies?

Anyway, carry on, NERT.

Bicycle Trilogy: Euro Tourists Like Bikes, But Not Concomitant Bike Helmets

See?

I’m sure that the bike rental place at the foot of Market Street pushed smelly neon-green helmets on this gaggle of northern Europeans heading outbound, but no dice.

Those are the Euros for you. (You could say the same thing about electrified bikes (helmet use required in CA regardless of age) or mopeds or motorcycles or whatnot, right? Where’s the line?)
