Proof That SFGov Has a Sense of Humor: A Parking Ticket for Just $23?

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

This ticket was issued in July 2014. The officer wrote $26 but the actual fine was just $23.

It was for “parking on grass” except there wasn’t any actual grass parked upon, oh well.

Anyway, it’s obvious that Rec and Park hasn’t caught up with the SFMTA in the ticket price inflation competition:

Why isn’t this ticket $123 or $223?

And why does the SFMTA, operators of the worst big city transit agency in America, have the highest parking ticket prices in America?

Oh well.

Anyway, if you want a parking violation that you can laugh off as you’re paying it off, this is the one for you

Five Dollar Gasoline Returns to the Bay Area for 2011

Friday, May 20th, 2011

Here’s Menlo Park, where a Shell will get $5 a gallon out of you for full-serve (which nobody needs*) V-Power premium (which nobody needs**).

See?

All right, forget about full-serve – here you go, $5.03 in South San Francisco for premium**

Thanks for the 411, SanFranGasPrices.

So, what’s the next threshold, $6 a gallon?

Looking forward…

*Oh, you need ¬†full service ’cause you have a handicapped placard and you’re part of the ten percent of placard holders in town what isn’t running a free parking scam? O.K., then be my guest, full-serve for you!

**Oh, you need¬† premium V-Power? No you don’t, you just think you do. (Be sure to stay out of Montana, which has some areas where even 87 octane isn’t available. You’d have to fill up with less than 87 if you ever wanted to come back to the 415. Oh well.)
