How Close is Too Close for Parallel Parking on the Streets of San Francisco? This is It – Too Close

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

Visitors ask all me all the time if my giant Toyota has ever gotten stuck between other cars whilst parked on the mean streets of San Francisco.

And the answer has always been in the negatory.

But I think this here is an actual case, what with bumpers of the black VW cute-ute SUV actually touching the cars ahead and behind.

See?

I don’t know, maybe you could rev your engine to gently push the cars out of your way, but that would seem to be a risky course.

I guess the driver might have to just be patient and then come back to see when escape becomes a possibility…

Even If You Own a Car, You’ve Got to Admit That This Five-Vehicle Crash on Hayes was Pretty Funny – Transit First, Bitches

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

Can you reconstruct the scene here?

The first vehicle (you know, the one with the driver who, post-accident, took off with a quickness) struck the Toyota, which struck the Honda, which struck the Ford, which struck the other Toyota.

No injuries and maximum humor, you can’t beat that.

Have you ever seen a funnier accident? I haven’t.

After I took the shot, I yelled out “transit first, bitches” and then rolled away on a 21 Hayes bus my melon-farming bike.

“Sharing my aggression is what that I do
Every day I’m riding the ‘Tour de Fuck You’
Banging on hoods and kicking in fenders
a right-of-way-aholic on a permanent bender
Running red lights at the fat intersection
Cutout seat protects my erection [SO TRUE]
You like the bird, in my hand?
Take two from a motherfucking track stand on my bike
I’m on a motherfucking bike
I’m on a motherfucking bike”

The Scariest Car on the Streets of San Francisco – A Student Driver Toyota Tercel

Friday, September 11th, 2009

Hooh boy  – do you think the enourmous wheel and tire on the front left of this beater “Student Driver” Toyota Tercel are just a tad too big compared to the others? That would explain the list to starboard.

And extra mirrors, why do bad drivers always have extra mirrors on their cars? Some people just shouldn’t get behind the wheel.
