I think it’s illegally parked on public property, but IDK
Posts Tagged ‘illegally’
SFMTA PCO’s seem to like citing this car daily, to the tune of $103 a day for the crime of parking too near a crosswalk:
Presumably, the owner has left it there for a few days, not realizing her mistake.
So, what’s stopping the SFMTA from citing this car every hour for the same violation? There must be some internal policy, one that I’m not aware of.
What if the rest of the SFMTA operated as effectively as the Parking Control Officer division?
I wonder what that would look like…

We’ll have a good time
Leave your worries behind
Well you could be mine

Millionaire Lady Has Her Minimum Wage Employee Double-Park a Large Mercedes on Market: Bay Area Bike Share (BABS) in ActionThursday, August 14th, 2014
Well, here it is:
Am I far off on this one? Minimum wage is $10.74 per hour these days. How much do these bikeshare Mercedes drivers make, you know, at a time after Alta has admitted to a “mistake” or two? And it looks like Alta is “privately held” so who knows how many millionaires own it…
Is this situation what the Planners of San Francisco planned?
Or is this just-park-where-you-feel-like-Alta policy and concomitant bike rack installation a “chop-shop project,” the likes of which San Francisco pols claim to eschew?
After an Unlawful BART Police Shooting, Protesters are Required to Wait Seven Days in Order to be LegalThursday, August 25th, 2011
Now, ideally, people protesting the next unlawful BART Police shooting would get seven-day notice so they could apply to legally protest the shooting on BART property.
But life doesn’t work that way IRL. So when a BART Police officer shoots somebody unlawfully or by mistake or whatever and people want to have a demo at BART that same day, well, that’s going to be an automatic violation of BART rules even if the protest takes place in the designated free speech area.
“BART requires those who wish to exercise their right to free speech to have a permit while on BART property. If you wish to obtain a permit, please do the following:
BART must receive the permit no less than seven days prior to the date of your activity. Permits received after the seven day deadline will be denied – there are NO exceptions.“
See how that works? Irate protesters have the choice of cooling their heels seven day to protest in a legal fashion in a legal area or protest the same day as the shooting illegally.
Maybe that’s part of the reason why you have so many “illegal” protests, BART?
And oh, has any legal protest at BART ever gotten any attention? Not to my knowledge.
And oh, has any Designated Free Speech Area looked good anytime, anywhere in history? Usually, these places are far from the action, sometimes encircled with cyclone fencing all around, you know, like Thunderdome.
Here’s the only Designated Free Speech Area that I’ve seen lately. It’s from somewhere in the vicinity of Strybing Arboretum, that place that got renamed and paywalled (that’s why there’s a boycott going on…) Anyway:

That’s what the people who run things in the Bay Area think protests should look like.
(Now, this designated area might have been a joke, but my point is that you can’t tell the difference – the real thing looks pretty unreal as well.)
To repeat, maybe this is part of the reason why you have so many “illegal” protests, BART?
Just asking, BART-bro.

Hot Ticket: INFORUM Hosts Phil Bronstein and Jose Antonio Vargas at the Commonwalth Club On July 11thThursday, June 30th, 2011

All the deets:
“Jose Antonio Vargas Shares His Story for the First Time with INFORUM
Journalist and Pulitzer Prize Winner to Talk about his Struggle as an Illegal Immigrant
San Francisco – June 29, 2011 – Commonwealth Club’s INFORUM, today announced that Jose Antonio Vargas, successful journalist and Pulitzer Prize winner best known for chronicling his life as an illegal immigrant in the Unites States, will share his story in one of his first public interviews Monday, July 11, at the Commonwealth Club’s SF Club Office, 595 Market Street, 2nd Floor, San Francisco.
Vargas has been living illegally in the United States since the age of 12. In conversation with Phil Bronstein, The San Francisco Chronicle’s editor-at-large, Vargas will share his impressive story of struggle to belong and find success in the United States. Raised in Mountain View, Calif., Vargas started his triumphant career working at the San Francisco Chronicle while attending San Francisco State University. In the summer of 2001, Vargas got his first internship at the Philadelphia Daily News and continued on to intern at publications such as the Seattle Times and the Washington Post. Vargas wrote a series on Washington’s H.I.V./AIDS epidemic, covered the role of technology and social media in the 2008 presidential race and even visited the White House. In April 2008, he was part of the Post team that won a Pulitzer Prize for the paper’s coverage of the Virginia Tech shootings. Vargas also founded Define American, an organization seeking to change immigration reform.
Vargas accomplished all this while dealing with immigration problems. You can read more on Vargas in his piece “My Life As an Undocumented Immigrant” on the New York Times’ site: http://nyti.ms/m5rbZU.
The special program takes place at the SF Club Office on 595 Market St., 2nd floor in San Francisco on Monday, July 11, at 6:30 p.m. PT. For more information and to buy tickets, call (415)-597-6705 or register online at www.commonwealthclub.org.”
