Do people park their cars on the left and right lanes of Bush in the Western Addition for like six hours at a stretch on weekends?
First it was all like this, with a seven pointed star, for Color of Authority:
But now it’s all like this, with SFMTA instead of MTA and the new logo the SFMTA stole a few years back. (Hey I wonder if they ever worked things out with those people in Chicago…)
Is this an improvement? I can’t tell. (Like, is relabeling the accurately-named 5L Limited the inaccurately-named 5R “Rapid” an “improvement?”)
Now when homeowners with garages see red curbs they say, “Goshdarnit, I need a red curb too!” But then they’ll discover all the SFGov red tape they’ll need to cut through, and all the green they’ll have to fork over, so they’ll paint their curbs red, you know, unofficially.
And then SFGov will come along to paint over the curbs in grey and On It Goes…
(And, you know, this is just my guess, as I generally don’t directly speak with the MUNI people because we’re far apart on many issues. And, oddly, these two curbs shown in the photos are right next to each other and they both have new looking paint…)
SFMTA daylighting in practice:
(I wonder if the SFMTA waives it’s own $2.50 “convenience fee” when it pays the all those tickets that it surely must issue to, more or less, itself – you know, our “City Family.”)
Can you legally perpendicular park your Frisco Family Car in a parallel parking area?
I know not.
This kind of thing is agin the rules if you used a four-wheeled SmartCar, but SF could have special rules for three wheelers…
The Public protested the white notices, so now the follow-up notices are here. They’re yellow:
One assumes that tree lovers will show up at this DPW meeting on April 27th and DPW will (sort of) listen to them for two minutes each and then most of the hundreds of sidewalk trees on this 3000-foot stretch of Masonic Avenue will get chipped later on this year.
Here’s what westside denizen James Corrigan saw the other day – yet another SmartCar with a Denver Boot on the front left wheel:
What this means is that the owner let at least five parking tickets go unpaid.
The way the owner got the tickets was through forcing it into parking spaces that were illegal, one assumes. These drivers just do whatever they can because they “know” they’ll fit into a space that no one else can. So they park on sidewalks, they overhang crosswalks, they run the gamut is what they do.
Now before the Smart Car came out, your parking champion around town was your “small premium” MINIs. but now we’re in the era of the Smart, which is a little bit bigger than what they sell in Europe, but even so, this ride is way smaller than a MINI.
No matter, just because you have a small car, that doesn’t mean you have reserved parking all over town…
