Boy, if you’re lost on the way to your local motion picture palace, you know, one that has not yet shut down, these signs will show you the way:

The news of the day:
Boy, it wouldn’t take too much effort from a few members of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors to hop on this particular bandwagon.
Now, which street to rename?
Hey, how about Laguna, the location of our Chinese Consulate? My, wouldn’t that be “provocative?”
In related news, here’s what a small stretch of Laguna looks like now, right in front of the consulate – see the brand-new NO STOPPING ANY TIME signs?
They’re also on Geary, so that means the Western Addition has lost maybe ten parking spaces, in the name of security, one supposes.
Actually, I’m surprised that parking lasted as long as it did, as it was such an obvious security issue.
On It Goes…
In a Way, the Great Car Towaway of Bay to Breakers 2014 Has Already Begun – Will You Pass This Parking IQ Test?Friday, May 16th, 2014
Look at these workers throwing signs over parked cars and into Golden Gate Park just yesterday. SFGov is required to give a little notice, so this is how they do it. Is it enough? Well, IDK. It’s certainly not enough for some people. (But think of the poor tow truck drivers who want to rifle through your car for loose change and folding money – they’re sort of people too, right?)
Here’s what the signs say:
So if you see the signs and then make sure to move your car off of Fell or Hayes or all those other streets, you pass the test – cngrats.
But if you parked your car before the towaway signs went up, well, you’ve been towed and that will run you somewhere between $500-$1000.
Welcome to San Francisco!
Our World-Famous Haight Street McDonalds, Upside Down and Backwards – Where Up is Down and Left is RightFriday, November 8th, 2013

Now, let’s hear from the peanut gallery:
“If I could give it zero stars, I would. This location is synonymous with trash, drug abuse, and a family unfriendly environment receiving literally hundreds of police calls. McDonalds HQ should shut it down or clean it up as it gives all McDonalds a bad name.”
Now MUNI is Supporting the Oakland Raiders? And is “EQUALITY FOR ALL” Political? How About “HOUSING FOR ALL?”Thursday, August 15th, 2013
So I can understand how SFMTA MUNI DPT SFBC puts up GO GIANTS! and GO BULLS! (the local hockey team) and even GO 49ERS!, but what about ads for teams that aren’t even in the towns that MUNI serves like GO WARRIORS! and, indeed, GO RAIDERS!

So what’s next?
Will Ed Reiskin put up FAIR HARVARD?
Will Ron Conway have something put up like “We Stand With Boston?”
The point is that MUNI doesn’t have any standards, it just puts up whatever it wants for whatever reason.
Of course, this year we saw a lot of EQUALITY FOR ALL during Pride so why not next year have something like “HOUSING FOR ALL?”
So asks blogger Mike Petrelis and the B.A.R.
(BTW, when MUNI spokesmodel Paul Rose says something like, “I will be sure to include your request for consideration,” what he really means is FUUUUUUUUUCK YOUUUUUUU, GO TO HELL..)
We’ll just have to wait and see how this one goes…
Disrupt Parking: The Kids from the SpotOn Parking App Have Got the NoPA Western Addition Covered – Look for Iconic Orange ConesFriday, August 9th, 2013
They’re trying, I’ll give you that.

Yeah, I don’t know….
You know, if I dropped out of an Ivy to start up a transportation app in Frisco, I think I’d offer an Android version, you know, for the 79% of the world what rolls that way.
But that’s just me.
Anyway, they’re not per se illegal from the get-go, and that’s so unlike a lot of Ron Conway*-type startups what litter the 415 these days, so they’ve got that going for them…
*Hey, did Ron Conway really try to improperly intervene with SFGov over the parking spaces near Pinterest HQ? Ooh, that’s pretty cheesy, RC!
