Reason #12 for UBER / LYFT Drivers to Stay Off of Frisco’s Market Street: Getting Hassled by The ManTuesday, November 8th, 2016
They’re gunning for you UBER LYFTERS, these days, the SFPD is, particularly on Market Street.
Harley Davidson = Motor Patrol = all what these popo do all day long is hand out moving violations, mostly. (They mostly come in the daytime, mostly.)
And remember, trade dress = extra scrutiny for you, sry.
First there was the Renault Twizy:
As seen on Page:
And now there’s the highly similar Nissan Quad:
Race them if you want to:
All the deets:
A Scoot Quad is a mini electric car that can carry two people. Say hello to the Quads and get ready to explore the city in a whole new way.
• Top speed of 25 MPH
• Range of 40 city miles
• $1 of electricity to fill ‘er up from a normal wall outlet
• Gets the equivalent of 250 MPG (after doing the math to convert the electrical energy to dirty gas equivalent)
• Produces 6% of the CO2 per mile of a car (including the emissions from the power plants that make the electricity)
• US drivers license and Scoot membership required
• Carries two people — that’s what the backseat is for!
• No freeways, bridges, or roads with speed limits over 35 MPH
• Quads are $6 up to 30 min, 20¢ per minute afterwards.

Anyway, nice plate.

And here’s what John Law has to say:
5200. (a) When two license plates are issued by the department for

they were issued, one in the front and the other in the rear.
I’m thinking there are reasons you’d especially want an FLP on Uber’s experimental cars, but maybe that’s just me…

As seen in the SoMA on Folsom near 12th right, by the SF Eagle, not that there’s anything wrong with that:
No, it’s not sucking the data off of your cell phone – it’s Cruise Automation, baby. And it looks like they’re on the right path, unlike, say, so-called Elon Musk and his so-called “Autopilot.”
