For symbolic reasons, if for no other.
It’s like this every night:

[Assessor-Recorder Phil Ting and area muckraker Phil Matier both drive Priuseseses around town but they don't seem to drive like Prius drivers, AFAICS. It's uncanny. Consider them exceptions to the rule.]
Most of the time, when you see people driving at night without their headlights on, the car involved is a Toyota Prius. There are various reasons for that, but mostly it has to do with the lack of situation awareness possessed by the typical Prius driver.
So it was refreshing to see a non-Prius driver doing the same thing just yesterday. Thusly:
Now, if you want to get in on the fun, order a black Prius from Toyota. Then, when you go about at night without lights on, you’ll turn invisible. Thusly.
And oh yes, feel free to blame Toyota after you crash.
Normally that kind of set-up a pain, but it’s a bonus when you’re stalled on Martin Luther King, Jr due to congestion near Music Concourse Drive. Just pull into the other lane and hope that the drivers coming the other way notice.
If you ever get pulled over by the SFPD or the Park police for driving the wrong way, address all concerned as “gov’ner” and feel free to throw in the phrase “me lorry” as much as possible. “See here, Gov’ner, me lorry is right hand drive, so….” That should get you off the hook.
Why waste your petrol waiting in line when you can just jump the queue?

After famous Conan O’Brien performed at his “Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour 2010“ at the Nob Hill Masonic Auditorium on April 22-23 he headed south down to San Joser. But on the way, he managed to put in a visit to Google’s HQ in Mountain View. O.K. then.

Front cleansing indeed.
Conan O’Brien’s 32-city “Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour 2010“ delighted all comers at the sold-out Nob Hill Masonic Auditorium tonight.
It went a little something like this.
Friday’s show should be a hit as well. Keep up with the action at the Twitter via #cobnob

[UPDATE: OMG COCO is finally here. Follow the action via Twitter at #cobnob.]
Oh, it’s on. It’s going to be Coco a Gogo when Conan O’Brien’s “half-assed“ 32-city “Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour 2010“ comes to the Nob Hill Masonic Auditorium April 22-23. It’ll be just like 2007 all over again.
“Full Price Tickets” from TicketMonster are going right now for $74, all up. And for just $695 you can get in on the Meet and Greet Package- wouldn’t you like a photo of you and Conan to put on the FaceBook for all your “friends” to see? Sure you would.
I don’t know, maybe you can score some cheaper ticks by using your AmEx card or going to the box office or something.
See you there!
All the tour locations, after the jump
Just call (415) 485-1238 to sign up, according to the ad that occludes the rear view of anyone driving this Toyota Prius.
The first lesson for Prius drivers in the Bay Area is how to turn the headlights on at night. An amazing number of drivers of these cars just don’t seem to be aware that their lights aren’t on. No headlights, daytime running lights, turn signals, tailights – no nothing except the brake lights occasionally.

All you can do is yell “headlights!” when they drive past.
