This Sidecar TNC (Transportation Network Company) Van was in an Accident and Then It Wasn’t Properly Repaired, IMOTuesday, December 9th, 2014
The orange side mirror cozy tells us that that this minivan is operating as a Sidecar and the fact that its front wheels are closer to the median than the rear wheels when it’s going straight down the highway tells me that it was in an accident and then it wasn’t properly repaired:

Is this a particularly dangerous sitch? Prolly not.
And, in fact, Lady Diana would have been better off in this vehicle* with this driver** on these roads*** and with San Francisco EMTs**** at the ready than she was in her deadly accident in France.
And it’s not an SFMTA-approved San Francisco taxi cab with more than a half million miles on the odometer.
But still, this Sidecar aint right.
*A Mercedes Benz S280 that had badges saying “S600” and “V12,” an S280 that wasn’t repaired properly after being stolen for its airbages, an S280 that handled differently turning left vs turning right
**Not drunk, let’s hope.
***Pick America’s poorest state and try to find exposed support beams without a guardrail ala that tunnel in Paris. You can’t.
****American-style “scrape and scoot” response vs. a French-style “stay and pray” let’s-take-more-than-an-an-hour-to-get-to-the-hospital approach…
Nike Women’s Marathon Media Van #2 Going Waaaaaay Too Fast for the Narrow Streets and Lanes of the Western AdditionTuesday, October 22nd, 2013
Uh, it’s just the 2013 Nike Half-Marathon, it’s not Armageddon, or even Deep Impact. Where’s the fire, minivan lady? I mean, nobody really cares about the Nike (excepting for the concomitant silver bling from Tiffany’s that Finishers so covet), but people will care if you run over a ped, right?
Also, Nevada plates?

Now, Oregon plates, you know, from California’s Other Deadbeat Neighbor, from Nike’s Home State, well, I’d almost go for that.
In conclusion, I cry foul.
