Bushpocalypse Now – Frisco Sees Its Worst Traffic Ever In 2017 – Highest Number of Registered “Vehicles” in History

Friday, March 24th, 2017

That stat is as of Calendar Year 2015, but our friends at CA DMV are putting the finishing touch on the numbers for Calendar Year 2016.

So is a trailer a “vehicle?” IDK. IDTS. But 2016 looks to be the year we push over the half-million mark for vehicles registerd in Frisco.

And of course that doesn’t include all the new UBER Lyfts from all over.

So here’s the result, from yesterday’s evening drive. Southbound Sansome is all backed up, but look, you can see a PCO Intercepter cart on the scene, to fix everything:

I was thinking, it’s morphin’ time – time for another round of three-figure parking/traffic tickets for “blocking the box.” But no, the PCO disappeared with a quickness. Leaving SFMTA Dude in the Bush Street HOV lane all by himself. Turns out he was patiently waiting to proceed behind some more stalled traffic. He was soon gone as well.

Bush Street is always bad, but yesterday was especially bad. Five eastbound cars sat in the intersection for about five minutes. But then they advanced leaving room for a few buses and cars on Sansome to sneak through north and south.

Bush doesn’t get any more crowded than this:

Anyway, that’s the update.

Some drivers refuse to comply, oh well.

What Happens When You Hail an UBER / LYFT to an Address Like 525 Market? – Temporary Chaos, That’s What

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

Market in the Financh is down to just one lane, in parts, these days, right? So you can’t just stop and wait for your fare to come down an elevator, right? Frisco aint Tracy, CA, right?

After getting yelled out by Bike To Work Day, Uber driver from the South Bay scooched on over enough to let more people squeeze by.

It’s just not possible to legally pick riders up like this, sry.
