Three Things What are New the Past Decade in Frisco: Corporate Intercity Buses, Paper License Plate Abuse, and Private Taxicabs

Wednesday, August 10th, 2016

1. Back in aught-seven was when I first heard of corporate buses taking workers to other cities. (Or maybe it was aught-six, I forget.) Of course we had Frisco institutions shuttling workers around, owing to our horrible, horribly corrupt SFMTA / MUNI mess, but people riding the freeways for hours a day, well this was new. Anyway, in the left corner of this shot you can see the distinctive Van Hool kink at the rear window.

2. That Porsche in the middle has its license plates at home. Back a decade ago, drivers didn’t go around for months and years without plates, but these days, they do, oh well.

3. And on the right, an Uber instead of a regular taxicab.

“DRUNK” Porsche: “I realize many people feel this says bad things about me. I feel that says bad things about them.”

File this one under Internet Regret. You see, last year this link (that currently points to a puzzled duck) looked like this:

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.

David Bellona’s Street Photo Wins the Internet So Far for 2014: “SF HUNGRY, MARIN DRUNK”

Friday, January 10th, 2014

[UPDATE: The car’s name is REDACTED. REDACTED’s owner is REDACTED  of the city of  REDACTED, CA. REDACTED is the publisher of REDACTED, per REDACTED.

Here’s what REDACTED says about REDACTED’s “DRUNK” license plate:

“I realize many people feel this says bad things about me. I feel that says bad things about them”

OK then.]

[UPDATE II: Alleged super-private personal information that was not actually super-private personal information but, in fact, was useful to prove to skeptical MSM-types that people can actually have a personalized license plate what spells out “DRUNK,” REDACTED. Boy, aren’t we touchy touchy! Awfully touchy for somebody having that on his license plate in fucking Marin, the world capital of drunk drivers. I guarantee that every cop that sees your plate does a double-take. And I thought you had posted a little ditty about your plate (because you had). But if you want to trade your exciting high-profile lifestyle ride for my boring, unnamed and aging Land Cruiser, well, let’s do it, if it would help you out if your shame spiral.  In any event, REDACTED.  (In mitigation, REDACTED is NOT the publisher of Gannett Co Inc’s The Bold Italic.)]

This shot from Mark DeVito has got it all.

Indeed, this is no place for a convertible!

Let’s hope that this driver doesn’t wind up on the Marin County Sheriff’s Public Booking Log any more than the average Marinite driver…
