Oh, it’s not the Empire State Building? OK fine, whatever:

Chinatown Park and Ride: Not a Bad Deal If You Want to Park in the Financh on Weekends for $3, Sort Of

Here’s the sign:

And here’s the program.

And here’s what Yelp has to say.

I didn’t know about this deal- now I know why people are lining up to get into the Golden Gateway Garage before it opens on Saturday mornings.

Seems like a good deal for those who want to while away the hours in C-Town on a Saturday…

SFMTA Inspector Pledges “Safe Streets” But Runs Red Lights on Market

Thursday, July 28th, 2016

I guess he sort-of-stopped in the middle of this crosswalk on Market outbound near Jones…

…like you can see more than one red here, when the light is against you…

The signals at the goofy intersection of Market, McAllister, and Jones seem to be messed up lately, IDK why. There was a big redesign to make most of McAllister a two-way street in this area and that worked out OK I s’pose but this hasn’t been a good place to be in 2016.

(Note that the anti-pedestrian chains on the north side of the foot of McAllister have been removed, perhaps to fight crime. This place is pretty dysfunctional, of course.)

Anyway, here’s the kicker – the quite insincere I PLEDGE SAFE STREETS bumper sticker on the back:

Hello, Backwards MUNI. Hey, what are some of the downsides of this plan? Oh, none, none at all? Well, that’s reassuring. But hey MUNI? What about your Only In Frisco “work rules?” Are those a part of MUNIFORWARD? Oh they are, but you just don’t want to deal with them? OK. OK fine.

Anyway, here’s the “big” announcement:
