The Subie driver, that’s who.
How would you find out that you’re one of SF worst drivers? I mean, who’s going to tell you? So yes, you can make a right on red and rely on others to avoid you, but that’s not the way to drive, right?
This of course is a reference to a very unfortunate incident.
Here’s why I’m not an employee of the Uber:
Cause like every day I’d be saying, “Can we do that? I don’t think we can do that. Can we say that? I don’t think we can say that.”
I’d be a big Captain Bringdown / Jiminy Cricket.
Like here, a couple years back, on Market. I passed by this scene and so then I contacted the Uber people by email on my cell…
…and I was all, “Can you do that? I don’t think you can do that.”
Why? Because it’s a chalk ad on a Frisco sidewalk and that aint kosher.
I mean, I didn’t know for sure, maybe somebody had approved this and the Uber people had permits, who knows. I was simply “issue-spotting,” as they say.
So then, a half-hour later, the Uberers had these ads hastily obliterated, more or less, as best they could.
My one possible objection to this Kia Rio subcompact would have been visibility out the rear window, but that doesn’t appear to be a problem
So long as DC Comics, Inc doesn’t object…
Artist’s conception of a young Joe Montana as Shuddle user off to his art class or whatever:
(And I’ll bet she doesn’t have a hammer hidden under the front seat. I’m thinking in a fight over a disputed routing choice, he’d have the muscle mass but she’d have the reach – that’d be a toss-up, I’d give even odds. But what are the chances of something like that happening in the first place? The screening process at Shuddle would appear to be more stringent than Uber, by about one or two orders of magnitude.)
We’ll see how this one goes – it might sound like a dream come true to a lot of parents in town..
Here’s the wiki entry.
And here’s what the SFPD has to say about Patrol Specials, below. I’ll note that the bolded parts are in the original, and really, that’s my whole point – the bolded parts are what the SFPD wants to emphasize, in high relief, as if we, the General Public, are failing students who Just Don’t Get It.
