Notorious Excavator, Kicked Out of the Upper Haight, Then Illegally Parked in the Outer Richmond – What’s Next?Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016
I’ve never seen an earth mover painted like this:
Used to see it parked on Waller.
It was involved with this fiasco last year.
How to Live Rent-Free in San Francisco: Get an RV and Then Park It In Front of a Church (and Not a House)Friday, June 19th, 2015
‘Cause if you sleep in your RV in front of a house, its millionaire homeowners will, hackles raised, not rest until you are gone gone gone.
But churches are a different story – you’re less likely to have to deal with complaints to the SFPD / SFMTA. (You might trigger an internal debate about why-do-we-even-have-this-congregation-in-the-first-place, you very well might do that.)
Simply, church-goers are much, much less likely to call out the popo on you.
I’ll tell you, the same RVs I saw ten years ago parked on Post and Geary and Fell and Oak at night are now, after recently being chased away by new legislation, parked on Masonic and Presidio and Hayes, as here.
On It Goes…
As seen from Geary – look, it’s a parking lot game like what you can play on your iPhone
A normal town would deal with this, but Frisco don’t, oh well. (If you’d like to make a go of putting back to use the very unused building at the northeast corner of Geary Divis, be my guest – a Honey Baked Ham sto’ was its last use, years and years ago.)
(Hey, was this one of the HBH stores what OJ Simpson had an interest in before The Real Killer stabbed OJ’s ex-wife and the stud who drove the white Ferrari (license plate L84AD8) that OJ paid for? I know not.)
And oh, there was a fire station here? News to me. Leaving you with the still-cited case of Quinn v. Rosenfeld, 15 Cal.2d 486 (1940):
“The plaintiff had been employed for about seven years at a firehouse located in a residential district on the northerly side of Geary Street between Scott Street on the east and Divisadero Street on the west. About 6:35 P. M. on September 29, 1937, the plaintiff stepped from the northerly curb in front of the firehouse, with the intention of crossing the street at that point for the purpose of going to a store on the southeast corner of Geary and Divisadero Streets. There was no crosswalk at the point of crossing selected by the plaintiff. There were established crosswalks and stop signs at both intersections. A pole with a lighted street lamp stood about two feet east of the point where the plaintiff entered the street, and the doors of the lighted firehouse remained open. The plaintiff wore a dark blue uniform. He stopped behind a parked car which was to the west of him. There were no parked cars to the east for a distance of about 75 feet. He looked to the east and at a distance of 135 to 150 feet observed the lights of the defendant’s car in the traffic lane on the north side of the car tracks approaching at a speed of about 20 to 25 miles an hour. He proceeded safely as far as the northerly rail of the westbound car tracks and stopped again to permit another westbound automobile, which had passed the defendant’s car and which was moving at a high rate of speed, to pass in front of him. Before proceeding he observed the defendant’s car again, and saw that it was swerving onto the westbound car tracks and coming directly towards him. He stepped back but before he could clear the defendant’s path he was struck by the right front fender of the vehicle.”

Here’s the latest:
“Renault has initiated an experiment in San Francisco with the scoot-sharing startup @http://www.scootnetworks.com/ to evaluate a potential fit for their fleet”
Le Twizy seen on Page – from Spain with love:
Yes, there’s room for two:
I know what you’re thinking – you’re thinking, “Will It Drift?”
Bon courage, Twizy. Bienvenue a San Francisco!
