Perhaps the SFMTA should lower their asking prices?

Or something…

Word on the Street, From Aging Millionaires in an Aging BMW Convertible: “BILLIONAIRES CAN’T BUY BERNIE” – Poor Hillary!

Monday, March 28th, 2016

Just assuming on the millionaire part, but this very clean 80’s-style orthogonal Beemer has been garaged for decades, obvs, so that and the white hair suggests long-term bay area house ownership, and all that suggests millionaires to me…

But no, it’s just arrested decay, as this nearby sign indicates

Friday, September 11th, 2015

Here it is, looking west at around 37th Avenue:

And here’s what you should be looking at – the aging SFPD SUV with radar on the left, the 30 MPH speed limit sign in the middle, and the SPEED LIMIT 25 MPH / SENIOR CITIZEN FACILITY signs on the right:

Read all about it here, courtesy of a disgruntled Prius driver what got a ticket last year, when the speed limit zones on this stretch of Fulton went 35-25-35. As you can see, these days it goes 30-25-30, but the concept’s the same.

One would think SFGov would want to put in a few more traffic signals in this area, but one would be wrong.

Anyway, here’s the perspective from inside a police car via Stanley Roberts of People Behaving Badly fame: Fulton 500 Speedway.
