This was the promise, back in aught-twelve:
In 2012 the San Francisco Board of Supervisors enacted a new violation in the SF Transportation Code to address inappropriate parking of oversized vehicles on city streets. SFTC Section 7.2.54 prohibits parking a vehicle over 22 feet in length or over 7 feet in height, or camp trailers, fifth-wheel travel trailers, house cars, trailer coaches, mobilehomes, recreational vehicles, or semi-trailers, between the hours of 12 a.m. and 6 a.m. when SFMTA signs are posted giving notice.
And yet this is the reality, in 2016. (I’ll note that the one in front has the brand-name “BRAVE” written on it in large letters – that’d certainly be true if the owner/renter planned to leave it there past midnight.)
The millionaire homeowners of Fell wanted these rides gone from their view, but, well this is what they’re staring out when they walk down their stoops these days.
Of course this photo was made in the daytime, so maybe this caravan moves out every night to neighboring streets without the SFMTA ban? IDK, cause I’m sleeping during those hours, usually.
But actually, a ticket for just $110 sounds cheap compared with the cost of a tiny Airbnb apartment in the 94117 what could go for double that, easily, for one night.
I’ll have to do an RV nose count next time I’m skulking about the Panhandle after midnight…
