As seen quite near Conservatory and JFK:

Our Electric-Powered Personal Transportation Future – These People Don’t Just Say, “MUNI SUCKS,” They Do Something About It

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017

Full face helmet, natch. (I mean, you don’t want to be like one of those helmetless FordGoBike “bikeshare” rental bike users going over the handlebars on Market due to the front tires getting stuck in an SFMTA streetcar rail chasm, right?)

These unicyclists were hauling ass on the Panhandle Bike Path / Multi Purpose Trail. Zoom zoom:

And further west on JFK, we have a Tesla Motors-beshirted skateboarder and an electric-powered trike:

So many ways to avoid MUNI we have in this Year 2017…

Double Illegal Parking, in Golden Gate Park

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

The first problem is that the car is pointing the wrong way. The second problem is that you can’t park here on JFK:

It’s going to take a looooong time before people figure this out, maybe a few decades…

What JFK Drive Looks Like with Three Lanes of Traffic Heading West, As If We Had a Hurricane

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

This was a rare occasion yesterday. Anyway, you had three lanes of traffic, one the regular lane, another the parking lane, and the last the bike lane:

No subways, no freeways out this way of course. So even a small disruption turns things to gridlock. So, far from being “resilient” (a quite-favored term in the 20-teens), we are fragile.

FRA-GEE-LAY

Oh well…

SFMTrA vs, SFMTA on JFK in Golden Gate Park – Obviously the SFMTRA in This Case

Wednesday, September 6th, 2017

Here it is, this installation what went in a few days back, in time for Labor Day Weekend 2917

Stencils, shrubbery, cones and safe-hit posts:

I’m guessing RPD won’t put up with this but IDK. As of yesterday AM, it was still there.

Anyway, sometimes I can’t tell, but this was the handiwork of the unofficial SFMTrA and not our SFMTA…

What’s the Speed Limit on JFK Drive When It’s Shut Down, as on “Healthy Sundays?” – Does Rec and Park Know?

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

Actually, Rec and Park just might exactly know how fast this pickup was going yesterday – they might have the ability to track MPH, among other things.

Anyway, this is the fastest vehicle I’ve ever seen on JFK during a road closure. You can see a few WTF looks here as the driver was slowing down:

Victim-Blaming, SFGov-Style

A daytime theft, a few days back, under the pouring sun:

(This is a little more disturbing than most, as this fam had pretty obviously just parked it there and the discarded hoodie hanging down there indicates a hasty getaway, or else somebody like Charles Manson (ex 636 Cole) came by to stage the crime scene, as was his thing.)

Anyway, this wave of car break-ins used to be a problem for the City and County of San Francisco, but they put up this sign, right across the street, last year (as you can see by the 3/16 at the bottom there):

And that took care of that.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.
