These are fighting words out on the west side:

Who says The Richmond is boring?
This is, and has been, a thing – see?
Hey, should these two blocks be on the Strava? Well, since there’re stop signs at the bottom of the dip, the answer is NO. Unless the “King of the Mountain” can actually stop, wait for any cross traffic to clear and then climb up to the next intersection in just 13 seconds…
If only Strava had more lawyer-advisors, you know, instead of the lawyer-investors, then Strava might look at this issue differently…
Well, here you go, as ably told by San Francisco Chronicle scribe Carolyn Said:
And here’s the scene, yesterday:
Kind of cute, I suppose. Like something out of 1973’s Sleepers:
This passerby was fascinated – she couldn’t get enough of this:
And in the world capital of illegally parked Mercedes Benzes, what do we find on the sidewalks of the Outside Lands, of the Great Sand Wastes of the Middle Richmond, but this? The little robot took a while to think and then simply went around the scofflaw’s car, easy peasy:
Is this The Future?
Do Segway piloti ever see other Segway piloti? IDK
It wasn’t supposed to be like this. IT was supposed to be a transportation revolution – deets from the other side of Frisco, with Bezos and Jobs at the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero, back in the aughts.
IDK, maybe somebody hacked this sign to say what it says. Regardless, this is a big improvement over the 10 MPH sign it used to be just a few days back:
More changes are coming for this area, before 2017, to prevent you from using JFK the way you’re used to…
Do we need cars anymore? IDK, but we have more registered in the history of Frisco right now, just saying. Anyway, this boxy 1973 BMW 2002 is totally max:
But the cathode ray tube (CRT) TV abandoned on the Avenues? Nobody wants that, obvs.
And the USPS letter box? It doesn’t get so much use anymore, but just try taking it away – you’ll hear howls of protest with a quickness I’m sure. (Or people’d email their complaints, more likely, these days.)
Which box do you prefer?
This official “SLOW TO 10 MPH” sign was up near Speedway Meadow during Outside Lands 2016, but it’s still there now long after OL’s blown town:
The limit goes back up to 25 MPH near 30th Avenue?
(This trailer doesn’t “see” bikes, AFAIK, unlike some others.)
Changes to the “access” we have to JFK are coming soon, but I don’t know what they are and if this is a part of it.
Our Presidio sometimes records license plate numbers and checks timestamps to see who’s “cutting through” the park (instead of having the Presidio as a destination in itself). The Presidio People think “Cut Through Traffic” is evil, but really, all traffic is cut-through traffic to somebody. Oh well.
If SFGov wants people to use Fulton instead of JFK, there will be some problems with that…
This attack from a few months back…
…came from this tree, which still shows where it broke apart:
