America, fuck yeah MUNI:

Is this to thank the feds for all the pork over the years? Or a way to get tax and fee payers to like the MUNI just like 1% more? Or a way to play with a new feature of buses?

IDK. But I aint never seen this, in all my years…

MANSPLAINER: Flashing Lights and Sirens Don’t Mean PULL TO THE RIGHT AND STOP, They Mean GET OUT OF THE WAY

Wednesday, July 19th, 2017

What does the DMV have to say about this situation? IDK, I forget.

But I’m talking IRL here. And in real life these two drivers teamed up to block this fire truck from turning right for a little while. The right-side driver, who definitely heard the sirens whilst driving the entire block, could have easily stopped mid-block and thereby have left room for the SFFD:

You gotta try to think of what the fire truck driver wants you to do, which is get outta the way, as opposed to what you did, which is slowly drive to the end of the block and stop.

For some reason, north-south travel has been prioritised here, so people going along Market have to wait wait wait at a red light for no real reason than, IDK, the laziness of those at MUNI, who can’t be bothered to adjust the timing of the signals to reflect ongoing construction?

Looks that way.

Ppl respond by waiting in the street, as seen above, or jaywalking, when they see that nothings really going on during their long long red light…

First We Steal the Hetch Hetchy Valley, a Little Yosemite, and Then We Waste the Electricity It Provides

Tuesday, January 31st, 2017

In 1870, Muir called Hetch Hetchy Valley “a wonderfully exact counterpart of the great Yosemite.”

Then we flooded it, for water and for the juice, the precious juice.

And now we waste the juice by leaving our lights on all the live long day:

I guess it stands out under the glare of red lights?

Keep up the good work, SFFD.
