Skruuuunch! What Happens When You Forget That Your Bike Is Sitting Upright in Your Pickup

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

The tiny, low-clearance garages of new construction in San Francisco have claimed another victim, 11foot8.com style.

See? This is post crash, with the driver backing out for damage assessment:

When I had a pickup, I’d just throw bikes in the back horizontal-like, but maybe there’s not enough room to do that in a Honda.

Come to San Francisco, Buy a Used Town Car, and Then Start Picking Up Passengers Like a Cabbie – Here’s How to Do It

Friday, June 1st, 2012

So let’s see here:

1. We regulate taxi rates so drivers won’t exploit tourists and other disadvantaged souls. (Oh, you’re a rich tourist and you’re lost and your flight leaves in an hour? $200 to SFO, take it or leave it – that kind of thing.)  

2. But we limit the number of cabs on the streets to help out the drivers. 

3. So much so, that buying a used Lincoln Town car and illegally picking people up off of the streets after quoting exorbitant rates is a good way to score some quick cash.

4. And, the SFPD has other fish to fry and the SFMTA isn’t really focused on this issue, so we’re back to square one, with unregulated “taxi” drivers exploiting tourists and other disadvantaged souls. Oh well.

As here. These bidnessmen were trying to flag down some Yellow Cabs, but those were all full, so next come the Black Town Cars. The first one quotes a price through the door, as seen here:

No dice. (What did the illegal cabbie ask for – $50 to go to Union Square? Something like that.)

And then another one pulls up and then another one, which ends up picking up these dudes and whisking them away. All the while, the bidnessmen were trying to flag down a real taxi.

Here’s the aftermath, on Sacramento:

Note the City of Oakland taxi cruising up the street empty – that’s agin the rules too, as Oakland taxis aren’t allowed to pick up people in the 415.

Now you might not see this too much on a Tuesday night, but on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, it’s Katie Bar The Door out there.

This is the situation.

However, the single-party state of San Francisco is incapable of addressing this particular situation.

Oh well.

Or maybe it was a late-night come-to-Jesus church rescue?

I’m thinking it’s got to be one or the other.

ROCKSTAR ENGERGY DRINK Pickup Truck Driver Drives As If He’s Had Too Much Red Bull

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

You know, like he’s had too much caffeine or taurine or whathaveyou.

See?

You can’t just start a right on red and then hope it all works out, oh no. Cause then what happens is that peds will go around the crosswalk behind you. Thusly:

So, duuuuuuude, hey dude, lay off the Red Bull.

Here’s another shot, with more contrast. It shows the classy URL of the Rockstar. See? By the time ROCKST★R Founder Russell Goldencloud Weiner (son of right-wing radio host Michael Savage!) hopped aboard the energy drink train, www.RockStar.com was already taken. So he added the number 69 as a differentiator for the URL.

Stay classy, ROCKST★R!

To review:

1. Slow down, Rockstar driver! You’ll give yourself a heart attack;

2. Stay classy, Rockstar founder! Heh, “69″ heh. You so crazy!
