Video: San Francisco Surfer Attacks BMW and Mercedes: “Angry hippie kicking in my mirror at Ocean Beach in SF”

Monday, April 28th, 2014

Here’s video of this recent  affair in the outer Outer Sunset District.

And here’s a screengrab of one of the mirror grabs:

And here’s some  convo, but, whatever you do, don’t ID the hippie as “Cricket,” else your comment will get pulled from the Reddit.

All right, here we go:

1. It seems very unlikely to me that the dirty, dirty hippie had a clean signal to even make it to the median – either he didn’t notice or he didn’t care.

2. Having said that, he was in the crosswalk when the lights went green, so the drivers needed to wait for him to clear. Technically, he wasn’t in the crosswalk “legally,” but it’s really tough for drivers to know this info at the time, and, in any event, drivers aren’t allowed to crash into peds on purpose, so what’s the point of all this honking and rolling.

3. What makes all of this especially stupid is that the lights on the so-called Great Highway are timed for a certain speed, so if you want you can just safely set your cruise control and be done. Except in this case, the Golden Gods in these German Chariots went faster than what the lights are timed for, oh well.

4. Having said that, I would have given this dude a wide berth and he wouldn’t have gotten any of my mirrors. (Maybe instead he would have pulled a Sig Sauer from his groinal region and shot me down dead, sure, but he wouldn’t have gotten at my mirrors.)

5. Oh, and snaps to all the other drivers – they managed to not plow their Audis and whatnot into stopped traffic

The Verdict:

All three of these dudes is crazy – they’re all guilty guilty guilty.

Fin.

A Plaintive Request from SF to AT&T: “Please Move This Post – Cars are Hitting Their Doors & Mirrors”

Monday, May 9th, 2011

San Francisco’s Alcatel-Lucent ALP-248 LA Remote Terminal Outdoor Enclosure #5531 is protected by a metal pole what scratches cars and whatnot, so a scribe scribbed a message for AT&T.

See?

So, what do you think, T? You think maybe somebody could move the pole away from the street?

(Oh, and to explain to you NIMBYs how U-Verse-style street furniture is already on the streets of San Francisco, yes, this stuff is already on the streets of San Francisco. So adding a few more (or 700 more) here and there about town (about 15 per square mile) isn’t going to change anything, fundamentally.)

This Student Driver In San Francisco has About Ten Mirrors on Her Car

Back in the day, you could learn how to drive with just two mirrors.

Is this the right way to learn how to drive?

People, don’t change the mirrors on your cars. Engineers spent countless hours designing them custom just for your vehicle after all. 

Maybe this is the future of rear view mirrors, with an LCD screen included? What a world…
