Those Mobile Billboard Trucks are Back on Market Street – Clogging Traffic, Blocking the Box – Why Your MUNI Bus is Slow

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

I don’t know, if I wanted to create gridlock in SoMA / Financial / Union Square, I think I’d hire some jackasses to drive “mobile billboards” around the block and around the block all day long. 

“Blocking the box” yesterday with a mobile billboard truck in the middle of the intersection of 3rd Street and Market:

“Hey everybody! Stop everything and look at me!”

Reverse angle – now the driver is only blocking one lane of 3rd Street:

Note the Washington state license plates.

And here’s the result of the advertising trucks. Gridlock:

Oh well.

“Blocking the box” is illegal these days, but the SFPD doesn’t really hand out tickets for that, so have at it.

Now I’ll tell you, Lyft taxi, a service that you just might like, isn’t legal, but mobile billboards, a “service” that you don’t like, are legal, more or less.

Isn’t it ironic?

Don’t cha think?

I’m just sayin’

San Francisco is the world capitol of aging, somewhat exotic motorcycles, don’t you know.

This view of Scott Street is typical.

Honestly, Cars on Inbound Market Street Would be Preferable to All These Rolling Billboard Trucks – “Traffic Jam Events?”

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

Seriously? You car dealer convention people are circling trucks (they have no cargo except for the ads) about  SoMA all day long?

Just to make more of a traffic jam?

And your company is called Traffic Jam Events?

This rolling ad assumes you inherited a car dealership from your father:

Or maybe this is performance art? I can’t tell.

We’re kicking cars off Market to make room for more ad trucks? Srsly?

Does the San Francisco Dept of Public Health Pay Somebody to Drive Around a Diesel-Powered Mobile Billboard?

Yuuuuuup.

Is this how you roll, DPH?

I don’t know, I’m the last person who’s going to die from the flu so that’s why I don’t get a shot when the new doses come out every year. I’d be taking a shot from someone who needs it more than I, right?

Yes, this looks like a truck, but it doesn’t carry anything except the message on its side:

Nice black power salute (or actually, blueredmustard-united power salute) motif tho, DPH. Very street, very gritty.*

In closing, I don’t know, is this how you roll, DPH? Really?

*In Marin, they use a family of cartoon cows, I’m seriously.

So San Franciscans Can’t Drive Their Cars Down Market Anymore, But Useless Sign Trucks Can? Yep

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

You see this truck from “Eye Catching Media?” All it does is circle around San Francisco carrying a billboard. There’s nothing inside of it.

As seen on “car free” Market Street, yet another turbocharged, intercooled diesel:

Is this what we want? Could we craft a law affecting these rigs that would be constitutional? Yep. Are we doing anything now? Nope.

So maybe this is what we want…
