SFMTA “Beautification” Effort Fails at Great Highway and Kirkham – Why Not Paint What Should be Red Curbs Red?

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

The street triangles of the Outside Lands become an issue for the SFPD:

You see, the problem here is that there isn’t any church around to persuade the SFMTA about how it’s OK to park next to a median, oh well…

Illegal Turn or Not? Can’t Tell – SFGov Doesn’t Do a Very Good Job of Regulating SFGov Drivers

If SFGov were serious about “Vision Zero” 2024, which it’s not, it would have already started with SFGov traffic.

Oh well.

A Rare Delivery in Frisco: Dominos Pizza in the Housing Projects of McAllister

Friday, September 16th, 2016

I can’t recall the last time I’ve seen this – a pizza delivery in the Western Addition flats, on McAllister near Fillmore. This has been a no-go area for some pizza places in Frisco for a long time. There’s a long history of this kind of delivery redlining  – see some of it here, or even more here.

(IMO, Friendship Village(s) = The Projects.)

Here’s one current delivery map. It’s a tad embarrassing, you know, for all of us in Frisco, so you now have to request persimmon (Mmmm… persimmon) from the owner/manager of Amici’s Pizza to see it – that’s how embarrassing it is.

I’m not saying that this part of McAllister Street is particularly dangerous and I’m also not saying that big-city pizza delivery is particularly safe, I’m just saying I can’t ever recall seeing a Domino’s delivery in this area, in all my years.

Anyway, there are pros and cons to the changes I’ve seen in the Hayes Valley, from a place for streetwalkers to a place for street standers…

Traffic, Balboa Street – This Segway was Supposed To Take Over the World

Do Segway piloti ever see other Segway piloti? IDK

It wasn’t supposed to be like this. IT was supposed to be a transportation revolution – deets from the other side of Frisco, with Bezos and Jobs at the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero, back in the aughts.
