Frisco’s last operational phone booth, almost, in case you want to drop a dime – as seen south of Market:

How the SFPD Gets Its Man – A Brief Foot Chase in the 94117 – Red and Blue Lights Race Through the Panhandle

Friday, June 9th, 2017

And when I say through the Panhandle, I mean through the Panhandle, as Fell is a one way the wrong way. So let’s use the multi-use trail to get to Central from Masonic:

Looks like it worked:

Yes it did:

What Happens to You When You Fly a Drone in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area – Video – Cited on Mt. Tam

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Start at 7:00 and finish at 9:00, so as to avoid a couple instances of the B-word, one more offensive than the other:

(I think the fine is just $125.)

But if you want to make a car commercial, well, I bet that you just might be able to get a permit and then you can fly to your heart’s content.

A Surefire Way to Stop Crime at Infamous Haight and Stanyan: Simply Park an SFPD SUV and Officer on the Sidewalk There

I mean, right?

Normally, this place is filled with people just hanging out, but I saw no one at all here at this time…

Remembering the Aughts: When Female SFPD Officers were Allowed to Wear Earrings and How They Violated Policy

Tuesday, May 16th, 2017

Here we go, a shot from 2009 on Market, from some protest. These two stood out. And I thought, can the popo wear earrings in Frisco?

And here’s your answer, or at least it was back during the earliest part of our current millennium:

5. JEWELRY AND ORNAMENTS (also see DGO 11.08, Grooming Standards).

On-duty officers shall not wear jewelry or personal ornaments that are visible except:

a. A wristwatch.

b. A total of 2 rings that are consistent with officer safety. An engagement and wedding ring set will be considered as one ring.

c. A conservative tie bar or tie tack.

d. Female officers may, in addition, wear the following:

1. Hair clips or pins that match the color of the hair.

2. One ear post in each ear. The post must lie flush with the ear and be plain metal, gold or silver colored. The face of the post is not to have a diameter of more than three-eighths (3/8) inch. Nothing shall hang from the post.

So that’s your answer, no danglies.

Outrageousness: New Extreme Sport Allows Euros to Skateboard Down Our Cable Car Tracks – Video – “Probably Illegal”

Monday, May 15th, 2017

[UPDATE: All the deets here, including the expected stern reaction from our generally-mismanaged SFMTA MUNI DPT.]

Here the video, de la Mecanique Populaire:

These Skaters Hacked Cobblestone Streets With Boards That Hook Into Tram Tracks – Their ingenious innovation created a new extreme sport.

And a few screengrabs. Any cable car bell ringing you might hear is an admonishment – “Hey Euro, stop that,” one imagines:

What’s funny is that Dude has a big old handbrake for our extra steep Cable Car hills, but not anywhere else he has journeyed:

Play us out, PM:

“Their innovation has spread around the world, to cities with tram tracks from San Francisco to Rio de Janeiro, creating a new extreme sport. Skating like this looks pretty dangerous, and we’d guess that hijacking tram tracks like this is also probably illegal. But it also looks like a whole lot of fun.”

Oh, here it is on YouTube: Cobblestone Riders

Seems a bit corporate

The City of Bell Police Visit Frisco

Monday, May 8th, 2017

Taking in the sights with some youth group or auxiliary cadets or something (EXPLORERS?), in a large body-on-frame van.

Man, Bell, CA has a lot going on for being just a population 35,000 city, that’s for sure.

(Who knows, maybe SFPD detectives put on their badges and drive Frisco yoots down to SoCal, IDK.)

LIDAR: What Happens to You if You Drive 33 MPH+ on Fulton Out in the Avenues

Friday, April 21st, 2017

SFPD Park Station is going to get you, that’s what’ll happen.

And make that 28 MPH+ if you’re going past the senior center way out there on 30-something…

Annual 420 Day 2017 – 1) Huge Vapor Cloud; 2) Minors’ Meadow; 3) The Bum Rush; 4) Unnecessary Street Closures 5) SFGov Featherbedding

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

1) Hippie Hill before 4:20 PM:

Hippie Hill at 4:20 PM:

2) People were getting carded at the gate, so what to do? How about hang out betwixt Kezar and Stanyan, how’s that? A high school scene:

7J7C0837 copy

3) Alternatively, there’s always the bum rush. Hundreds made it through this one rupture over a period of about three minutes. Security guard in the yellow on the left there knew just what to do – he shut things down with a quickness. You can see some of the lucky ones past the gate to the left of the unecessary ambulance. Why would you bum rush? You’re a minor, you want to bring in your glass bong, and/or you didn’t want to wait so long in line – those are my top three guesses:

7J7C0804 copy

4) Traffic was going pretty good until SFGov started shutting down streets:

7J7C0822 copy

I don’t know why they do this – seems an overreaction:

7J7C0828 copy

So Hayes Street temporarily becomes New Fell Street

7J7C0843 copy

Count the #21 Hayeseses totally stuck in traffic:

7J7C0850 copy

5) So when SFGov complains about how much money it has to spend on Annual 420 Day, leaving aside how much effort it puts into promoting tourism, like how it sent its white collar worker$ to “volunteer,” you know, on the clock, for the NFL’s Super Bowl Experience or whatever the Hell it was called last year, take a look at this unecessary featherbedding – it’s a street sweeper sweeping nothing. How much does this cost, a $1000? IDK

7J7C0830 copy

Anyway, all this foo forall seems a make-work program for SFGov to placate the millionaire homeowners in the area, you know, on Annual 420 Day.

JMO.
