Public Housing Project Posted as PRIVATE PROPERTY?

Friday, November 4th, 2016

I guess this sign means that not just anybody has permission to come on in.

But it’s public property, right?

Ever More “Speed Hump” Speed Bumps for Golden Gate Park – What’s the Recommended Speed for These Things?

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

Get up to “speed” here.

Here we go – on JFK looking east towards Transverse / Crossover

And now close to Marx Meadow looking west – this one will be going in soon:

I guess this one will go almost all the way across JFK Drive:

And, now closer to 30th Avenue, looking east – this was the first to be installed, now with a new sign:

I don’t know when I’ll make it back here with a vehicle. IMO, 20 MPH or so is prolly the limit for you. (I had my decidedly non-sporty ride mistakenly set in SPORT mode, but I don’t think it makes much difference on a road regularity as big as this, but I’ll try it again sometime on my ride’s softest suspension setting.)

OTOH, if you have a brand-new BMW M4 GTS, how about 0 MPH as the limit?

And on bikes heading west, IDK. Look out, Jack, is all I can say.

I think the actual speed limit for the bumps is 25 MPH, but that seems too fast for IRL.

Our SFMTA has reported that some drivers go 32-34 MPH on this stretch of JFK and I’m sure these numbers come from someplace real, but I’m also sure whatever stat they’d report has been manipulated for their own purposes, oh well.

On It Goes…

Is This an Ad Against Frisco’s Proposed Soda Tax? – Check Out La Mission Market en la Mision

Is this Coke ad / store sign new?

Sure looks like it.

I guess Pepsi and Coke know they’re a gonna lose on the “grocery tax” issue next month, but they just want the margin to be as low as possible?

The Signage Where Lobos Creek Drains onto Baker Beach Says What Now? – Something About Water Quality?

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

FIrst of all, I think our Feds could do a better job with signage here, at Baker Beach:

And second of all, I think the sign should say that this water is generally OK for kids to play in/around, except for times after it’s been raining. I think.

And there’s this:

San Francisco and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, which has jurisdiction over Baker Beach, are working with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory on monitoring studies in an attempt to locate the source of the coliform, fecal coliform and enterococci detected where Lobos Creek meets the ocean. “It’s a spring-fed creek. We don’t know what’s causing it,” said Michael Kellogg, the supervising biologist for the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission. “Runoff is not an issue at Lobos Creek, which is percolating ground water.”

Anyway, this is the sign I can remember seeing, but it’s gone now…

Careful Now, Ladies – There are MEN AT WORK at the CalTrain

Tuesday, August 30th, 2016

Oh, I’m sorry, I shouldda said, “CalTrans,” the way people call the Cal Train on the Internet, sometimes:

Are these old old signs for these old old trains around still*? Perhaps they’ve been grandfathered in as historic relics…
