Ask these people where they got the sign and they’ll tell you all about France and where their kids are going to college.
We’ll see how it goes.
But you might need to prepare yourself for more of this:

You see what happens is that sometimes people who, you know, don’t qualify to live in a federal housing project are tempted to park their rides on federal propertah, you know, within half a click of City Hall.
So what happens is you end up with a sign like this one: “RESIDENTIAL PARKING ONLY – OTHERS WILL BE TOWED”

Q. Hey, how does with square with TRANSIT FIRST?
A. It doesn’t, not at all.
The only thing better would be “Oregon” in there instead of “Washington”

Now I’m no narc. But if you are:
Did you know that the State of California loses millions of dollars a year in revenue from California residents who unlawfully register their vehicles in other states or countries?
Did you know that vehicle registration fees are due immediately upon accepting employment or establishing residency in the State of California?
Did you know that California law permits only 20 days to complete the process of registering your vehicle without paying a penalty?
The three most common reasons for not completing the registration process are:

Back in the late aughts Victory Gardens were all over the place, remember? Let’s look back to that time in aught-seven when “guerrilla gardeners” took over the land in front of some lady’s apartment complex at Fulton and Stanyan and just started gardening.
It was beautiful vandalism, man. The venture had lots of support from the City and NGOs, that’s for sure. But things didn’t work out.

And now you know the rest of the story…
I’ll tell you why.
It’s because east-bay government contractor Randy Shaw is in the tank for Mayor Ed Lee.
So whenever Mayor Ed Lee changes his position on some issue, Randy Shaw just might very well put on his cheerleader uniform (it still fits!) and start waving his pom-poms.
“All San Franciscans should cheer Mayor Ed Lee’s plans to return to Sunday free meter parking.”
Is Randy Shaw a “journalist?”
“San Francisco’s Tenderloin is the city’s last remaining working-class neighborhood. And it is the only residential neighborhood in the city without any residential parking program.”
Is that true? NOPE!
“Tenderloin residents cannot park in front of their apartments or SRO’s…”
Suffer the poor SRO residents who can’t park for free all day long right in front of their buildings like a rock star! East Bay resident Randy Shaw weeps for them.
“Free Sunday parking should be sacrosanct.”
All right Randy, you know what we should do? We should poll all the mansion dwellers of Berkeley, CA and then use the results to determine parking policy for San Francisco, why not?
And Randy? Why not work on spending our money better?
Wow, the SFMTA certainly seems to know where you all are parking your RV’s for overnight stays on the streets of San Francisco.

You’ll have to find new places to park pretty soon. (I can already guess at the new places where all the urban campers are going to go.)
