Millionaire Lady Has Her Minimum Wage Employee Double-Park a Large Mercedes on Market: Bay Area Bike Share (BABS) in ActionThursday, August 14th, 2014
Well, here it is:
Am I far off on this one? Minimum wage is $10.74 per hour these days. How much do these bikeshare Mercedes drivers make, you know, at a time after Alta has admitted to a “mistake” or two? And it looks like Alta is “privately held” so who knows how many millionaires own it…
Is this situation what the Planners of San Francisco planned?
Or is this just-park-where-you-feel-like-Alta policy and concomitant bike rack installation a “chop-shop project,” the likes of which San Francisco pols claim to eschew?
Reader JR sent this one in. Read his words below.
If you want to see for yourself, take a look at the Streets View of JFK Drive near the Rose Garden, a little west of “425 JFK Drive, SF”
I think the bigger crime here is being oblivious to the big old honking Google Maps car going down JFK, but anyway.
Hey, is that Phil Ginsburg? (I can’t tell, but check out those sideburns. Does he wear a watch? Not that I know of.)
I was disturbed by the recklessness of a San Francisco Recreation and Park Department Employee killing a person (1). I looked further online into that.

But dividing the cost of a security guard among 20-something families is prolly pretty expensive, so at other times there’s only an empty SUV posted as sentry.

And best of all, the place is Caucasians-only, sort of:
“In a small brochure, Object Lessons in Homebuilding, developers Baldwin and Howell promoted racial covenants as part of a set of deed covenants attached to a model planned gated suburb, Presidio Terrace. Deed covenants were used to ensure protection from the nuisances of uncontrolled growth following the 1906 earthquake and to create a community of “Caucasians” only in Presidio Terrace. Among such progressive urban design amenities as underground utilities, asphalt roads for automobiles, and private picturesque streets, racial covenants guaranteed racial homogeneity as an integral part of desirable suburban housing. Baldwin and Howell marketed Presidio Terrace lots by focusing comparatively on the settlement of Japanese immigrants in the Western Addition district of San Francisco as undesirable and blighted by racial pathologies.”
An Eye-Opening Lecture for Recreation and Parks Employees About the Importance of Not Driving On The GrassWednesday, July 2nd, 2014
Let’s take a peek through the open door:
The part of this lecture that I overheard appeared to do a good job about hammering home the rule about RPD workers not driving* park vehicles on the grass.
Here’s your context, from last year:
*There might be an exception if there’s also a spotter in the cab of the pickup, IDK.
