SF Paratransit Vans Now [DO NOT] Have the Name of the Driver on the Side, As If They Were Fighter Jets?

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015

[UPDATE: Hoo boy, I’ve just discovered the red circles on the sides of these vans are to honor those “who helped make paratransit possible” – see Comments. My bad. But seriously, I thought regular drivers had their names stamped on the side to give them more pride in work, to encourage them to drive and park more safely. (Of course, I still think that’s a good idea, even if the drivers wouldn’t like it…)]

Well, this kind of thing should be mandatory for Toyota Prius drivers:

And Interim Mayor Ed Lee’s Chevy Volt should have this too, the better to spot when it’s double parked.

If I were a driver, I’d ask for a radio call sign like Maverick, Goose, or Jester…

Tourists Riding Rented Bikes on Fell Street: Which is Worse, Cruising on the Left Side or the RIght Side?

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

Up first we have the Left Side candidates, who have decided to go without smellmets:

Cf. the Right Side candidates, spotted a few days later:

I’m thinking I prefer the right side option, as your typical driver (which of course you should assume just got released from prison a week ago, and is uninsured, and is driving an unregistered vehicle) would be less surprised to see you there.

Mind you, none of these bicyclists was “taking the lane” improperly – all were biking legally.

But foolishly, IMO.

The best option would have been the Panhandle Bike Path, which is just to the left of the left lane of Fell, but these tourists didn’t seem to be aware of its existence.

Perhaps their tourist maps led them astray…
