Frisco’s Funniest Parking Ticket – It’s Just $23 at a Time When $100 is About the Average

Monday, April 17th, 2017

Here’s how you’d get it. See the problem?

It’s called “parking on the grass” (even if you’re merely parking on dirt due to all the others before you parking in the same place).

Now what’s funny is that the cost of this ticket (it was just $23 back in 2014, and the ticket giver thought it was $26 at that time, and who knows how much it is now, prolly still comically small) obviously hasn’t kept up with inflation, for some reason.

Why this ticket isn’t $300 is a mystery to me.

Anyway, parking on the curb should be A-OK, but this driver went a little too far…

(d) No person shall park any vehicle on any
lawn, or planted area, or unimproved area or on
any pedestrian or equestrian lane, or on any
access road or unpaved service road or firetrail
or in any manner so as to block access to or exit
from any service road or access road or firetrail,
or in any other place in the park where the rules
and regulations of the Recreation and Park Com-
mission prohibit vehicular parking, unless al-
lowed otherwise by permit; (more…)

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.)
