The Most Double-Parking on One Block I’ve Seen in the Western Addition – San Francisco Day School – A Parade of Luxury CarsWednesday, January 6th, 2016
And when I say one block, sometimes this line of idling Lexus LX570’s, Toyota Land Bruisers, Mercedes Benzes, Audi wagons, Toyota Priuses, Tesla Model S’es, and all matter of Porsches! Porsches! Porsches! goes down Golden Gate Ave (not far from where Patty Hearst was held in a closet), up Central, and then starts snaking back along Turk:
For our appointed Mayor to go on and on about how double parkers slow his chauffeured trips about town, well, what’s his fix for this? His zero tolerance policy doesn’t appear to acknowledge daily reality, oh well.
IMO, narrow Central “Avenue” really isn’t an avenue, so this wagon train of nannies and parents would be better off simply staying on Golden Gate stretching to the horizon.
DS SFDS the richest school in the Western Addition with tuition for kinders costing like $30k+ per year? I think so.
Seems it could try harder…
Model S Teslas Vying for the Same Parking Space at the Western Addition Popeye’s – What Do You Call This Place – NoPA, DivCo – Is It So Special?Tuesday, December 15th, 2015
I don’t think NoPA is so special.
Hey look, your precious Northeast of Panhandle Area is actually in the Western Addition – here’s a map from just part of part of the WA:
And don’t ever search your house’s property records for the term “Western Addition,” ’cause you’ll be disappointed to find that term in there, over and over.
But no no, area millionaire homeowners association – please go on and on about your petty concerns. Tell EVERYBODY.
Another Hum-Drum Injury Car Accident on Masonic – Airbags Everywhere, Cars Totalled – Autobots Sacrifice Selves to Save OwnersMonday, September 14th, 2015
An accident* on Masonic yesterday at Hayes, with CCSF’s John Adams Campus (the former Lowell High School, 1913-1962):
(My money’s on the VW’s driver being at fault, but who knows.)
Now how many airbags exploded during this fender bender, like a dozen? You could see all matter of them from a distance. How much would it cost to replace a single side curtain bag, for instance, one wonders. The upshot is that the people inside these rides get injured less than they would have a generation ago, but the cars get damaged more.
So it’s off to the scrapheap they go.
Seems fair enough.
*’Cause it wasn’t on purpose. Now if it were, then we’d call this collision attempted homicide or something. But if you’re an “urbanist” or whatnot, feel free to call it a collision if you want – that word would also apply. TY, drive through.
In the next world war
In a jackknifed juggernaut
I am born again.
In the neon sign
Scrolling up and down
I am born again
In an interstellar burst
I am back to save the universe
In a deep, deep sleep
Of the innocent
I am born again
In a fast German car
I’m amazed that I survived
An airbag saved my life
2015 is San Francisco’s Big Year of Car Break-Ins – Here’s What It Looks Like – An SFPD Bust in NoPA, Hayes, DivisaderoTuesday, August 11th, 2015

The Drone Bros of Golden Gate Park: Whose Drone is Hovering Three Feet from Your Bathroom Window on Fell Street? This Dude’sTuesday, May 26th, 2015
Here’s the scene without any arrows pointing things out:
And here are the arrows:
And here are the bros:
Now it could be that bro was just checking out his own pad using his new toy, but man, some people might have been surprised if they saw this drone hovering just outside their windows.
The drone slowly increased altitude to rooftop level and I didn’t stick around to see where it went next.
This is How We Live in 2015…
