The Towman Cometh: The Great Towing of the Western Addition Starts This Saturday Night – Thanks, NIKE!Thursday, October 15th, 2015
IMO, Nike should make sure that these types of signs hit the streets like six days before the annual Nike Womens 13.1-Mile Marketing Effort
(Interesting font there, SFMTA!)
The way things stand now, notice is insufficient.
(The person who will tow your ride Sunday morning will live south of SF, and have bible verses cited on the side of his tow truck, if Past Is Prologue.)
Garish, $140K, BMW i8 SAFETYCAR Towed by DPT, for Safety, One Supposes – The Limits of Supercar OwnershipWednesday, August 12th, 2015
You’d think a SAFETYCAR such as this one would spend its time on a racetrack up north, but no, it mingles with regular cars on the streets of San Francisco, like this:
Now here’s the update, from Jake Saltzman:
IDK, did SAFETYCAR block traffic in a yellow zone during towaway rush hour and then did DPT have it towed as a hazard to navigation? Well, something like that.
(Someday, _I’ll_ own and operate a SAFETYCAR!)
Actually, Dude was driving perfectly fine, not at all like an aggressive Grizzly…
Usually, they’re new ones I see on flatbeds
Oh Jaguar, will you ever win?
How to Make a Pay Package Worth Over $300K per Year: Become an “Incident Support Specialist” – Drive an SUV for the SFFD?Tuesday, July 7th, 2015
Here you go – a couple years worth of pay data for SFGov’s Incident Support Specialists:
(All of these ISS people are at the SFFD AFAIK.)
So, what does an ISS do?
Here’s my guess – drive SUVs about Frisco.
Now let’s do a search for ISS:
“A fire chief’s vehicle, also called a “chief unit” or a “fire chief’s car”, “Fly Car”, “Fly Vehicle”, a “fire car”, or sometimes even called a “Buggy” (a throw back to horse drawn days), is a car, truck, or SUV that is used by a fire chief at fire scenes.”
“Each fire chief’s vehicle can be driven/operated by an assistant to the Fire Chief, Deputy Chief, Division Chief or Battalion Chief known as a Chief’s Driver, Chief’s Aide, Chief’s Operator, or Incident Support Specialist.”
So, if you spend 60-something hours a week driving people about Frisco in a Ford Expedition or a Chevy Suburban, you can make about ten times as much laboring as an SFGov Incident Support Specialist than as a driver for the Lyft or the Uber.
Do I have that right?
Postcard from Sacramento County: “DOES THIS ASS MAKE MY TRUCK LOOK BIG?” – NOT an Obama Voter, CertainlyMonday, June 22nd, 2015
I think food manufacturers test-market a lot in Sac County ’cause it’s like a small snapshot of America, demographically speaking.
Anyway, here’s one voter:
(This was right by the freeway what has, about 80 miles away, a metal highway clean-up sign thanking “FRIENDS OF OBAMA” – I’ll have to try to get a shot of that sign the next time I pass through…)
