Question of the Day: How Likely Is It That This Truck Parked on Geary in a Red Zone Will Get a Parking Ticket?

Wednesday, March 9th, 2016

It might be a dead-bang sure thing that the owner of the pickup parked on the left would get recorded by the camera in the #38 bus on the right, but IDK:

I’d never park there with a MUNI bus in range, that’s for sure…

It’s Come To This: Privatized School Buses – KIDZJET – As Seen Double Parking on Fell Street

$280 per month per kid? Oh. Uber or Lyft or Shuddle might be cheaper, non?

I have notes.

Welcome to San Francisco. So like you can’t double-park on Fell Street in the Western Addition, right? I mean, it’s like our substitute Freeway To The West, right? What you can do is go around the block. Sorry.

Also, one of the reasons why CBS made this…

60 Minutes II 15-Passenger Van rollover report

…is due to some vans having too much rear overhang.. Your comic here shows the half-assed Chrysler / Ford approach that increased rollover risk.

I don’t think you can market safety with this style of van. Sorry. If anybody is still operating this kind of van, they should take out the last row and not put anything else there – just leave it empty is what I’m saying…

Anyway, I’ve never seen this company before.

Proposed Figure 8 for Twin Peaks: Let’s See if SFGov’s Half-Ass Overgoverning is Better than Its Half-Ass Undergoverning

Wednesday, February 24th, 2016

“No offense Homer, but your half-ass under-parenting was a lot more fun than your half-ass over-parenting.”

Joe Kukura does a good job here of explaining our SFMTA’s Twin Peaks Figure 8 Redesign Project.

Losing one lane of traffic should be no problem, but I don’t know where our tourists will be able to park after the SFMTA gets through.

They kind of make things up on their own now.

Rec and Park has no idea what it’s doing, as you can see, as per usual. What did they do, just put up some signs and walk away?

So, after all this stuff coming from SFGov, we’re supposed to drive to Super Bowl City and The NFL Experience [Driven By Hyundai]?

And “Parking Panda?”

OK fine.

The press release it TLDR for me, but you have at it, Gentle Reader…

The Dog What DIDN’T Bark: Mansion-Dwelling Millionaires in the Western Addition Seem to Have No Problem with THE URBAN SCHOOL Construction

Tuesday, January 26th, 2016

What’s this? It’s just a simple massive 50-feet steel beam double-parked for a long time in front of historic million-dollar-plus mansions.

Why? Well, it’s a part of the lengthy, noisy extension at THE URBAN SCHOOL, a private high school what costs three times (3x) as much as tuition at our University of California campuses.

And yet, nary a peep I’ve heard from the nabes.

Just saying…
