I’d seen the collected cars, but not the car collector(s) themselves, until now:

How SFGov Profits from Human Nature: Hundreds of Dollars of Street Sweeping Tickets Issued on One Short BlockThursday, April 16th, 2015
Our SFMTA issued st least three tickets on this short block the other day, you know, to punish people for blocking a street cleaning machine.
Here’s the Before, with an ugly, ugly trash-strewn street…
…and here’s the After, with the newly-beautiful* street:
What a difference!
Hurray! Hurray for SFGov.
(IRL, this is SFGov reacting to market discipline. If it made this much money per minute rehabbing addicts, it would spend a lot more time and effort rehabbing addicts…)
*Actually, this short block, and this one only, was recently repaved, a few years back, right before an election, and it happens to be the block where a long-time leader of a long-time community group just happens to reside, and I thought, where are we, Chicago West? That’s just what I thought, I don’t know why this block got repaved before others in the Western Addition. As I said, it’s kind of random….
SFMTA PCO’s seem to like citing this car daily, to the tune of $103 a day for the crime of parking too near a crosswalk:
Presumably, the owner has left it there for a few days, not realizing her mistake.
So, what’s stopping the SFMTA from citing this car every hour for the same violation? There must be some internal policy, one that I’m not aware of.
What if the rest of the SFMTA operated as effectively as the Parking Control Officer division?
I wonder what that would look like…
Gonna Go on an Escapade: JEFFERSON UNION HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICT Car Far from Home, Illegally Parked in the 94104Monday, February 16th, 2015
We’ll have a good time
Leave your worries behind
Well you could be mine
(My roommates in colledge used to dance on the floor, while seated, with arms flailing, to this song, and it wasn’t all that old at the time, that’s how old I am.)
If I were the Super Pretzel pushcart people on Market at the cable car turnaround, I’d push these carts somewhere else before the lengthy loading and unloading process:
But these people don’t care – on they go with lifting and the lowering, on they go as westbound traffic backs up behind them…
Absurd: Nestle Pure Life Bottled Water Delivery Driver Blocks Southbound Fillmore by Double Parking 3x in 2 BlocksThursday, January 15th, 2015
What’s this? It takes just one truck double parking in our defunct “Jazz District” to back up Fillmore Street all the way across Geary?
Dude stopped at least three times to deliver huge water bottles on both sides of the street, like he had all the time in the world
And he seemed to double park closer to the middle of the street than the right side.
Anyway, I tended to bidness and then came back up Fillmore northbound and Dude was still there on Fillmore, except this time he nosed in a bit. Here’s your reverse angle:
Don’t we get water from Hetch Hetchy? So why do we need Nestle to deliver these huge bottles as if we had the worst water in the world?
Nestle charges extra for San Francisco deliveries and this impossible delivery situation is part of the reason why.
IMO, this job, which is unecessary in the first place, is too big for one person to do without cutting corners…
Here It Is: The Infamous Line of Double-Parked Cars in Front of Rainbow Grocery – How Do We Solve This Longstanding Problem?Thursday, December 18th, 2014
I don’t know, but SFGov is powerless, it appears.
And here’s how things look in 2014 – nothing’s changed:
