Well, actually, I don’t know what these people did to earn a citation from the SFPD and I don’t what else they’ve done lately, you know, that might have escaped notice of the popo:
So maybe they’re not* dirtbags IRL, IDK.
Perhaps I’ll get called for jury duty on one of these citations, and then I’ll let you know.
*The SFPD bait car program straight outta Hollywood was a bad idea, for example. I can’t imagine convicting anybody for moving an unlocked car left idling and double-parked on Divisadero, for example.
Here’s the “Solution” for the Deadly Pedestrian Problem at Trader Joe’s #100 on Masonic – Is It Enough? MaybeTuesday, November 12th, 2013
You see this sign? It’s the one you see as you exit TJ’s #100 on Masonic near Geary, assuming you’re not driving or riding.
It was put in as a response to all those shoppers who jaywalk to their cars on the other side of Masonic.

People still jaywalk of course, owing to the ease of parking on the northbound side of Masonic and the difficulty encountered trying to park in the TJ’s lot. (There’s a lot of history here on this example of bad planning.)
Did I call for this sign? Yes I did. So it’s good that it’s there now. It wasn’t there a couple of years ago, so good on you, SFGov.
But can SFGov and TJ’s do more? Sure. Hey, why don’t the Powers That Be take the opportunity revisit this whole situation before others kill themselves?
Right? I mean I’m not talking politically, ’cause the politics part of getting a new gro sto here is already done. But, you know, morally.
Now here’s an example of people actually taking the several minutes required to get back to their cars by walking down to Geary and waiting for the four-way signal.
This gal here broke from her shopping group to jaywalk while her friends did things the legal way.
(Until this, I’ve never noticed a person not jaywalking,)
So here she is, sitting pretty whilst waiting for her friends, exulting in her ability to not get hit by a car on this occasion:
I don’t notice this kind of scene as much these days so that’s good.
That’s the update.
What It Looks Like When “The Man” Patrols Golden Gate Park: SFPD Checking for Open Containers in the PanhandleWednesday, June 13th, 2012
Open containers of alcohol, that is.
It looks exactly like this – note the bottle of Jack:
Oh, and there’s a “no smoking” law here as well, if you catch my drift, man.
All’s I’m saying is that the cops don’t enjoy this exercise neither.
So why not do as they want and just put your booze in a giveaway plastic water bottle?
Now you’re protecting your juice AND making the cops happy.
