The King of Stolen Bicycles and Bike Parts, San Francisco, the West Coast Capital of Stolen Bikes – Building FrankenbikesFriday, December 16th, 2016
Harvest harvest time
Here’s what this one small block of 11th Street looks like now, after the SFMTA started changing things.
I can’t say I understand what the SFMTA’s doing here.
But I do understand what this means:
Yeah, the same small block.
Anyway, the yellow lines are back closer to where you’d expect them to be, so that’s nice. (I guess this scene from last month was just for construction.)
So now this block has 2.5 sidewalks.
Why not four or five? IDK, maybe next year…
Sidewalk “Bulb Outs” Embolden Already Overconfident Pedestrians – “Vision Zero” vs. Risk CompensationTuesday, November 8th, 2016

Bay Area Bike Share (BABS) is a Smorgasboard of Illegal Parking, and Driving – And Let’s Check in That Yelp RatingFriday, October 7th, 2016
Market Street, yesterday:
Is this official, like from Ford? IDK.
And then they have their big Nissan vans – they double park, park on the sidewalks and make illegal turns off of Market all the time. Is that kosher?
And what’s up with these Ford pickups all illegally parked next to each other basically every day at the BABS station on Market near 5th? They’re still showing up. Does the reflective triangle make everything OK? IDK
Any connection here? IDK.
And the Yelp ratings are in the cellar, still. Seems like people are paying a lot of money for these bikes, considering what they get, and some people at some companies are millionaires now, and speaking of millions, taxpayers will end up paying tens of millions afore this program gets defunded or whathaveyou.
All is not well in BABS-land these days.
And I can’t wait to see all the Ford ads, which, one assumes, will be plastered all over, soon…
