How to Cross Fulton in the Avenues as a Pedestrian: Act Like You are a Jaywalker, Whether You are or NotThursday, April 27th, 2017
Let me explain. Bro here crossed all willy-nilly, which isn’t illegal at all, but it’s dangerous because he didn’t get a buy in from all the drivers. See?
All these cars were moving with the exception of the black car on the left. The white truck in the fast lane should have stopped but didn’t.
What I’d suggest is waiting for a break in traffic first, as if you were a jay walker.
And the bigger suggestion would be to put traffic lights on Fulton.
Of course our SFMTA has no interest in doing that.
Annual 420 Day 2017 – 1) Huge Vapor Cloud; 2) Minors’ Meadow; 3) The Bum Rush; 4) Unnecessary Street Closures 5) SFGov FeatherbeddingThursday, April 20th, 2017
1) Hippie Hill before 4:20 PM:
Hippie Hill at 4:20 PM:
2) People were getting carded at the gate, so what to do? How about hang out betwixt Kezar and Stanyan, how’s that? A high school scene:
3) Alternatively, there’s always the bum rush. Hundreds made it through this one rupture over a period of about three minutes. Security guard in the yellow on the left there knew just what to do – he shut things down with a quickness. You can see some of the lucky ones past the gate to the left of the unecessary ambulance. Why would you bum rush? You’re a minor, you want to bring in your glass bong, and/or you didn’t want to wait so long in line – those are my top three guesses:
4) Traffic was going pretty good until SFGov started shutting down streets:
I don’t know why they do this – seems an overreaction:
So Hayes Street temporarily becomes New Fell Street
Count the #21 Hayeseses totally stuck in traffic:
5) So when SFGov complains about how much money it has to spend on Annual 420 Day, leaving aside how much effort it puts into promoting tourism, like how it sent its white collar worker$ to “volunteer,” you know, on the clock, for the NFL’s Super Bowl Experience or whatever the Hell it was called last year, take a look at this unecessary featherbedding – it’s a street sweeper sweeping nothing. How much does this cost, a $1000? IDK
Anyway, all this foo forall seems a make-work program for SFGov to placate the millionaire homeowners in the area, you know, on Annual 420 Day.
Here’s How You Can Tell Our DPW is NOT a Safety Organization: It Allows Its Drivers to Run Red Lights All the TimeFriday, April 14th, 2017
Hey, what’s the speed of a DPW street sweeper when it’s sweeping? IDK but that’s the same speed that DPW operators run red lights, as here:
Now this could have been a legal right on red, but it wasn’t, ’cause the driver is under so much time pressure there’s not time to stop or slow down, one is forced to conclude.
Similarly, on Divisadero, drivers don’t stop for reds either, and in some cases that includes traveling straight through an intersection, such as the one Grove, seemingly every time, on a red.
It would be a trivial exercise to get SFGov employees to follow CA driving laws. (You know, if you were motivated to figure out how to do it AND if you didn’t care a whit about the massive massive blowback you, a department head, would suffer.)
