The Anatomy of the Great SFPD SENIOR CITIZEN FACILITY Speed Trap on Fulton

Friday, September 11th, 2015

Here it is, looking west at around 37th Avenue:

And here’s what you should be looking at – the aging SFPD SUV with radar on the left, the 30 MPH speed limit sign in the middle, and the SPEED LIMIT 25 MPH / SENIOR CITIZEN FACILITY signs on the right:

Read all about it here, courtesy of a disgruntled Prius driver what got a ticket last year, when the speed limit zones on this stretch of Fulton went 35-25-35. As you can see, these days it goes 30-25-30, but the concept’s the same.

One would think SFGov would want to put in a few more traffic signals in this area, but one would be wrong.

Anyway, here’s the perspective from inside a police car via Stanley Roberts of People Behaving Badly fame: Fulton 500 Speedway.

KRON-TV Journalist Blamed for SFPD Crackdown: On Craigslist: “FUCK STANLEY ROBERTS – $100,000″ – More People Behaving Badly

Filmed in Frisco: “The Net” – Sandra Bullock – 20th Anniversary – MacWorld 1995 – DotCom 1.0 – KTVU’s Elaine Coral & Dennis Richardson

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015

Here you go: The Net, filmed on location in the 415 for a day or two back in 1995 and released exactly 20 years ago, during the beginnings of  Dotcom 1.0.

The Gist is that quite attractive hackr gurl Sandra Bullock is such is such a social loser that nobody in the world knows who she is, except for her mom with Alzheimer’s and former beau Dennis Leary(!)

So when the bad guys erase her identity, there’s nobody around to prove who she really is. (Man, this movie sucks – it’s a thriller without thrills. I’m glad I’ve never seen it.)

But let’s take a stroll down Memory Lane:

Bennett finally tracks down the net conspiracy to San Francisco, where the HQ of the ‘Cathedral’ corporation is 1 Post Street at Market Street. The climactic ‘Pan-Pacific Computer Convention’ used a real Apple convention at the Moscone Center, Howard Street between Third and Fourth Streets in San Francisco.”

And now, some screen shots.

So single female loser drives a big BMW sedan? I don’t think so, Hollywood, but thanks for heavily featuring the BMW “roundel” propeller logo in every scene that you possibly could. (Was is it her dead boyfriend’s ride? IDK.) And let’s all laugh at the huge “car phones” of the day, but they actually worked better as phones than our “devices” of 2015. And oh yeah, the fuzz is on her back door in this very scene – these days you can get a moving violation ticket for this “primary offense” and KRON TV’s Stanley Roberts would be videoing her for a segment of People Behaving Badly:

(Those are news readers I recognize, ’cause I’m old. IDK who reads the news these days.)

Oh look, McKesson Plaza! AKA One Post Street. Sadly, the gold letters were covered up by the Hollywood Freaks. Note the crimson red banners for an upcoming AIDS vigil. I’ll tell you, real candlelight vigils can be arresting, a river of light coming at you and stretching out for a half-mile. The one in this movie looked like just another parade.

And here’s your MacWorld 1995:

And there you have it.

Have at it if you want.

Bicycle Activists vs. the SFPD: “Wiggle Stop-In Event” Coming to the Lower Haight on Wednesday – “Advanced Media” Unwelcomed

Friday, July 24th, 2015

Look, a petulance parade:

“On Wednesday July 29th from 5:30-6:30 pm, please join us for our first Wiggle Stop-In event. We want to gather 50-100 cyclists to ride around the Wiggle/Lower Haight and stop at every stop sign in single file order. We want to make the point that, in fact, requiring cyclists to come to full stops at every stop sign is a really terrible idea for everyone on the road.

Grab your bike, ride to the Wiggle (the epicenter will be Waller and Steiner), and wait your turn for your chance to come to a full and complete stop at every intersection. Bonus points if you need to negotiate with other “vehicles” about who should be going first.

Let’s show Capt. John Sanford of Park Station that his choice to crack down on cyclists who aren’t following the letter of the law not only doesn’t make anyone safer but actually would create terrible conditions on our roads.”

Here’s your background:

And here’s your prior stab at a media stunt in this area, conducted by someone unfamiliar with, you know, our First Amendment:

KRON-TV’s Big Stanley Roberts vs. the Little Lebowski of the Southern Wiggle: “I Don’t Want To Release This Footage”

You Want to See Some _Real_ Red Light Running? Here You Go, Viral Video From Geary and Gough

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

Via Stanley Roberts of KRON-TV’s People Behaving Badly comes this “viral” (just two views so far, but the day is young) video.

The driver of this ride should have his/her license pulled until somebody in authoritah can figure out what went wrong:

But that’s not going happen, ’cause driving is a right, and not a privilege. In California, anyway.

I call this real red light running because it’s obvious that the errant driver entered the intersection on a red light (and I’m basically saying that the color of the light when a driver exits doesn’t matter and that peds need to wait for an intersection to clear whether or not they have a green. In California, anyway.) I don’t know if there was any bad behavior on the part of the ped(s).

The saving grace is that a lot of people who don’t know what they’re doing behind the wheel drive real slow. This is a possible drunkie…

How the San Francisco Giants are LYING When They Say “Ticket Scalping is Illegal” in San Francisco

Friday, October 24th, 2014

C’mon focus, look at the sign, as seen this morning by Stanley Roberts of People Behaving Badly and KRON-TV

1510881_840024242685136_4601403535699459182_n copy

Now it could be that this is what the San Francisco Giants organization wishes Police Code Section 869 would say, but this aint what it says.

Comes now SF Weekly writer Joe Eskenazi:

“…according to the police code cited on the sign (Good Ol’ No. 869) scalping is not strictly illegal: This is a code that prohibits folks from selling wares on the street without a peddlers’ permit. This means folks who sell their tickets online or out of their homes or offices are not violating the law. And your humble narrator was unable to find anything within the police code stating that people who buy wares from unlicensed peddlers are subject to arrest…”

So, Giants, why don’t you take these signs down, or change them? 


Mayors Behaving Badly: How This Photo from KRON’s Stanley Roberts Doesn’t Necessarily Show Oakland Mayor Illegally Texting

Monday, June 2nd, 2014

All the deets from Channel 4’s Stanley Roberts, he of People Behaving Badly fame.

If she was texting, then that against CA law, but if she was using her iPhone(?) as a wayfinding device, then this starring performance might not have been against the law.

Here it is:

DON’T MISS THIS! – Short “Oak Street Bicycle Red Light” Video – People Behaving Badly, Stanley Roberts

Friday, May 9th, 2014

I’m a little too close to this one, so I wasn’t sure if this kind of thing would be People Behaving Badly-worthy.

Well, obvs, it is now:

I don’t know how intentional the Great Oak Street Airlock is, you know, how the lights are poorly timed for traffic on Oak but also poorly-timed for cyclists using the Panhandle bike path to get on to Oak and beyond. I suspect that “teaching drivers a lesson” about how they shouldn’t be driving might be involved, but it also could be incompetence/neglect.

Speaking of which, just try to find a street sign what says “Baker” at Oak and Baker these days. Shouldn’t like SFGov like care enough about tourists ‘n stuff to like put up just one fucking street sign at an intersection? Yes, but it’s been this way for months. (If I were Ron Conway AND if I cared enough I could make a one-minute phone call to get the wheels rolling on the let’s-give-Baker-street-signs-what-say-Baker-street project, but I’m not so oh well.)

Anyway, enjoy.
