Thanks, LUGSTOR!

Red Hyundai vs. Mountain Bike at 4th and Market in Front of the Apple Store on Bike To Work Day 2016

Friday, May 13th, 2016

Get all the details here.

An accident at 4th and Market during the evening drive means that buses will back up Market Street both ways. This was in the the Financial last night:

This was the scene. I didn’t see what happened.

An SFPD motor patrol officer said the bike rider had a broken back and a possible broken pelvis. He said that words might have been exchanged between the bike rider and somebody in the red Hyundai before the collision.

Last I heard, the bike rider was responsive and stable.

This Rolling Billboard-on-Wheels Truck is Unstoppable – SFGov is Powerless to Regulate – Guess Which Amendment Protects Them

Friday, March 25th, 2016

That’s right, our First Amendment prevents local regulation, pretty much.

Read it and weep, Frisco!

So there’s nothing to stop the crush of these orange Boost ads from circling and circling during rush hour.

Oh well

We would circle and we’d circle and we’d circle to stop and consider and centered on the pavement stacked up all the trucks jacked up and our wheels in slush and orange crush in pocket and all this here county, hell, any county, it’s just like heaven here, and I was remembering and I was just in a different county and all then this whirlybird that I headed for I had my goggles pulled off; I knew it all, I knew every back road and every truck stop…

 

Hey, “BAY AREA” – If You Think You Have the Best Personalized License Plate, Take a Look at This – Bonus: Yellow on Black

Monday, March 14th, 2016

Is this real life?

So, either this is a real license plate, which would be fine, or it’s not. But if it’s not, I don’t approve…

What’s Going on Here, a Caravan of Consecutively-Numbered, Blacked-Out SUV’s Carrying Chinese People from Louisiana?

Friday, February 12th, 2016

[UPDATE: Oh, I see, “California State Public Highway One” (in simplified Chinese) SUV Tours, something like that. A mystery solved…]

Photographer James Corrigan is wondering what’s going on here out in the west si-ide:

I aint never seen this. The left side means Californy and the right side means public something or other?

IDK. But I’ll find out, soon ‘nough.

(Maybe it’s a race to see who can buy more houses in the Sunset?)

There are PLENTY o’ SFPD Available to Enforce Traffic Laws Outside of Super Bowl City, It Appears

Friday, February 5th, 2016

Just My Observation, but there are lots of cops around to pull people over this week in the 94117. As here on Oak:

7J7C0258 copy

I assumed that this ride had been pulled over for an expired registration, and I was correct, ’cause like you can’t really speed on this stretch of Oak.

I’m thinking the SFPD really likes to use license plate scanners in this area since lots of drivers get shunted into the Fell Oak corridor and it’s like fish in a barrel.

Generally speaking, having one-month expired registration tags (tabs?) is not that big of a deal, but whoo boy, once you get past six months, well Katie Bar The Door – the CVC takes a very dim view of waiting half a year to get your annual registration completed, just saying.

Anyway, it’s rare to see a business vehicle with expired registration, but these days, with license plate scanners all about, you just might get pulled over, with a quickness…

DMV’s New Black and Yellow License Plates Now Being Seen in the Wild – Not All That Old Timey-Looking

Frankly, I don’t see the appeal…

Uber X + Prius C = Driving North on Southbound Laguna in J-Town? A Questionable But Giddy Five-Star Drive in Uber #7FGU886

Monday, April 6th, 2015

On Laguna Street looking south over Post towards Geary with the Chinese consulate on the left in the background:

7J7C4925 copy

You see that? An impatient Prius driver simply went around all those cars heading north by pulling into the southbound lane. Then the driver turned left onto Post westbound to drop off her fares:

7J7C4931 copy

Now normally with Prius drivers, you gotta wonder about their situational awareness, about whether they know what they’re doing, but in this case, the driver knows what she was doing. She was line jumping to save about a minute or so, hahaha!

Oh, and of course, she’s works for / contracts with Uber:

I’ll tell you, the reason why taxis have “paint schemes” and giant numbers painted on the side is for situations like this….

Frisco Goes Full Florida – What are All These Miami People Doing in Town All of a Sudden? Photographic Proof!

Friday, April 3rd, 2015

I says to myself, I says, what is this, did all of Miami Beach come to the Western Addition?

And then I see the Florida plates:

7J7C4754 copy

Oh, that explains that.  And then I notice the bluest Camaro I’ve ever seen.

Speaking of which, more Florida plates, this time in the 94102:

(Florida plates, heh.)

And what’s this, a brand-new LEAP bus?

7J7C4696 copy

Cf. this brand-new eBay bus. “Surf blue?” How about Bay Window Beige instead?

I cry foul:

7J7C4558 copy

Your monochromatic blues, your gold-wrapped Lambos, they all belong in the Sunshine State, non?

And the latest insult, on Van Ness?

7J7C4466 copy

Shouldn’t the neon pink MIAMI AD SCHOOL be in Miami and not SF?

We’re not ready for all this. Take your pinks and blues and head on home, Florida!

A Cry for Help: Young Man Runs a Red Light in His Grandma Car near Civic Center – Colorado? Duke?

Thursday, March 12th, 2015

Maintaining this aging beast must be a bear:

7J7C3641 copy

In any event, maybe people drive different in Colorado, but even the SFPD will catch up to him soon if he continues to run red lights, and maybe they’ll suggest he get a California plate from the DMV if he decides to stay here…
