Hands-Free? Free to Do What, Spank Your Monkey? SFPD Says Porsche Driver’s Phone Sex Causes Collision with Tree

Tuesday, May 5th, 2015

I would Like this SFPD Facebook entry, but I don’t know how! (Isn’t that sad?)

Anyway, make up your own jokes here:

INJURY TRAFFIC COLLISION
MLK & Chain of Lakes (Golden Gate Park)
04-25-2015 4:12 AM
A Porsche was traveling eastbound on MLK at an unsafe speed when the driver ran off the road and collided with a tree. He told officers that he was having a phone conversation of a sexual nature (it’s unknown whether this conversation was hands free as required by the vehicle code). He suffered major injuries and major damage to his car. He was cited for speeding and for driving with a suspended license.

HoistCam? Napa CHP HoistCam! – May 4th, 2015 – Rescue at Tennessee Beach, Marin County

Monday, May 4th, 2015

A very Coast Guard-style rescue up in Marin County:

“On May 4, 2015 at about 1:15 PM, CHP Helicopter H-32 responded to assist the National Parks Service and the Southern Marin Fire Department with a rescue. Earlier, a woman was out on Tennessee Beach and was swept out to sea. She managed to swim back onto a cliff, but the cliff was inaccessible to rescuers. H-32 was able to hoist her to safety, and also evacuated an NPS lifeguard and ranger to safety, as the waves became too treacherous. Another example of multi-agency cooperation in the efforts to keep everyone safe!

Here’s What It Looks Like When the SFPD Hands Out a Bunch of Sit/Lie-Type Tickets in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

I suppose these people were in sleeping bags like at 11:00 AM or so and that attracted some attention from the SFPD?

Does our newish sit-lie law even apply to this location at this time of day? IDK.

But once you start accumulating these kinds of nuisance citations, you might start thinking about moving on down the road to a new town…

A Silent Cry for Help and a Noisy Response from SFFD & SFPD – What Happens When You Take Off Your Pants and Sit on Masonic

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

Stimulus:

7J7C5788 copy

And here’s the response from SFGov for this this young woman, and this isn’t the half of it – you could hear sirens coming from every direction.

7J7C5791 copy

More than a dozen public employees quickly responded to this one, including at least three huge SFFD fire engines, one of our few SFFD paramedic vehicles, and of course the SFPD. This turned into quite a scene.

The clients are suffering, the systems are suffering, and it’s hard for me to watch my personnel (get) run into the ground.”

Oh No, Shaming! – “Referee the Wiggle” Event Coming April 23rd to “Red Card” Cyclists at Infamous Waller and Steiner

Wednesday, April 15th, 2015

I’ll tell you, I’m not a big fan of the vaunted The Wiggle bike route and here’s why:

FOR MOST PEOPLE, THERE’S A BETTER WAY TO GET FROM THE PANHANDLE TO DOWNTOWN, TO GET THERE AND BACK AGAIN

That’s why. This was my stab at promoting the Northern Wiggle,* aka the McAllister Pass,** aka the Hastings Cutoff. *** Some people listened, but most did not, oh well.

Anyway, aside from this route being a third of a mile shorter and faster and safer and relatively ped-free, it NEVER gets any SFPD Bicycle Enforcement Actions, the way, say, the intersection of Waller and Steiner gets.

Speaking of which, now more people are joining the SFPD, to “referee the Wiggle,” if only for a short time.

Here it is:

“Referee the Wiggle
Thursday, April 23, 2015, 3:00pm – 3:30 pm
Waller and Steiner st – The Wiggle

While 95% of cyclists using the Wiggle are really incredibly respectful of other road users, there is that small minority who give us all a bad name. I’ve always wanted to dress as a referee and hand out yellow and red cards to bad cyclists (and maybe some cars and peds too) and I’m using NOW! as my excuse!

Come join me in shaming the few bad cyclists out there and making the Wiggle just a little bit safer and more courteous!”

*I, myself, wiggle from street to street north of the Panhandle on my way inbound to Fulton and Scott – it depends on traffic.

**The pass over Alamo Heights, which the Southern Wiggle route mostly avoids by generally following the route of the former creek what used to drain the kind of valley where the Golden Gate Park Panhandle sits now.

***Named for Landsford Hastings, a distant cousin, surely, of UC Hastings’ Justice Serranus Clinton Hastings.

Disturbia: Trail of “Bloody” Footprints on Hayes Leads to $5 Million House That Used to be a Baptist Church – Good Friday?

Saturday, April 4th, 2015

Nuala Sawyer of Hoodline just snapped this photo in the Western Addition – all the deets here:

Disturbing Footprints Leave Neighborhood Concerned

Via Nuala Sawyer:

Capturefsffffff

(Now I’ll tell you, whenever I leave bloody footprints, the trail generally, how do you say, attenuates as I move on. Moving on…)

Sure seems curious that this trail starts at the more-trafficked part of the NoPA / Western Addition and leads to 601 Broderick, the THERE GOES THE NEIGHBORHOODhouse, which, of course, used to be Gethsemane Baptist Church.

And then this building got sold for $5 million(!) as a Single Family Home.

And now it stands out, IMO, in an area of expensive houses.

Oh, here you go, CurbedSF’s Tracy Elsen called these transactions “our absolute favorite flip of the year.”

And here’s some assigned reading from Building Talker James Hill

Sauce for the Goose: Here It Is, Your Gigantic San Francisco Sheriff Mobile Command Unit – Biggest Ice Cream Truck Ever

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

As seen in Civic Center last week:

7J7C4634 copy

It’s a giant ice cream truck, with less horsepower than some Honda Accords.

Now the font on the side isn’t comic sans, but it seems a little bit comical to me:

7J7C4636 copy

Didn’t realize we had one of these. Perhaps we received a little Homeland Security money to pay for it, IDK.

I’m sure everybody was impressed at its debutante ball / first “MCU rally” in Sacramento a couple years back.
