Finally, a Happy Time at the DMV: Third Annual Slappy Contest Today at 3:00PM – Skateboarding is Not a Crime

Sunday, May 19th, 2013

Except when it is a crime.

Actually, just riding your bike through the Fell Street DMV parking lot is a crime unless there’s a sign saying it’s OK to do so and, sadly, there’s no such sign.

The “3″ stands for 3rd District, like the one we have on the right side of San Francisco (and on up to Marin and parts of Sonoma County).

And the little “R,” well that means “retired.”

Note that the registration is current. Note that this retired state senator actually paid for his meter space. Hurray:

Saturday, May 23rd, 2009

Look at this monster bus temporarily blocking San Francisco’s Market Street near 3rd Street Mayor Willie Brown Way - it must not be easy driving a 60-foot-long Neoplan AN460 on the 14 Mission or the 9 San Bruno lines.

Cause if you miss the acute turn from Willie to Market outbound, you got to back her up, and that means you need spotters to help you out. As here.

I’d rather drive the shorter buses on the 37 Corbett, personally.
