I remember how the SFMTA kicked off its new corporate bus-only terminal on Fell betwixt Masonic and Ashbury as if it were yesterday, or the day before yesterday anyway.
Way back then, the temporary signs notified locals* to not park there and the locals complied. But now we have more permanent signage, see?
The problem is that they’re harder to see. Now you’d think that they could have put one on this metal pole here, but they didn’t:
No no, they’re mounted only on concretey light poles way up high:
So here come the parkers, during the evening drive yesterday, betwixt 4:00 and 8:00 PM:
This Prius is parked right under one of the two news sign. Is this kosher? I can’t tell. I don’t think it is.
Hey SFMTA! Don’t most bus stops / terminals have lines marked out on the street? I think so! Anyway, your three temporary no parking signs were doing a better job than your two brand-new permanent signs, just saying.
On It Goes…
*One time, a Facebook Teamster from Stockton(!)** asked me, “What’s Divisidero?” We were both on Masonic at the time…
**Man, how can you live in Stockton and work in Frisco doing a decidedly non-telecommuting job?
