I don’t think this is the solution, but here’s your band-aid for Market Street:
That’s right, our First Amendment prevents local regulation, pretty much.
So there’s nothing to stop the crush of these orange Boost ads from circling and circling during rush hour.
We would circle and we’d circle and we’d circle to stop and consider and centered on the pavement stacked up all the trucks jacked up and our wheels in slush and orange crush in pocket and all this here county, hell, any county, it’s just like heaven here, and I was remembering and I was just in a different county and all then this whirlybird that I headed for I had my goggles pulled off; I knew it all, I knew every back road and every truck stop…
I aint never seen this:
I can remember seeing some HUMVEEs on the “Interstate” freeways of Honolulu,* but H1 Hummers were the smallest of the lot here. Look at these beasts – I bet they put out more NOx than a TDI VW:
Here’s what you need, an 8×8 Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck (HEMTT) M984 wrecker
About ten vehicles altogether…
*Yes, just one city has three entire interstate freeways inside of it
Consarnit, back in the day our Panhandle Bike Path was just eight foot wide. But then people started using it more, so it got widened to 12 foot. We should up that 16 foot, why not.
And on the Oak side of the GGP Panhandle, we should certainly redo the crazy wavy surface ASAP, and widening, well again, why not?
Oh what’s that, you’re waiting to get the irrigation installed? All right, well that’s already been taking a long long time, and one questions why we’re irrigating in the first place, and walkers and joggers are falling down all the time, due to this outrageous neglect from SFGov.
As seen on the Streets of San Francisco:
And I don’t know what the (mostly white, mostly male, and highly Eurocentric) “urbanists” have been telling you, but vehicle registration in Frisco has never been higher (and this doesn’t even include all the cars on our streets that should be registered in CA but aren’t).
So sure, Lyft Uber ZipCar & Millennials Don’t Even Want Cars etc., sure.
But alls I’m saying is that the number of cars in SF isn’t going down, not at all. And let’s wait and see how DMV’s 2015 numbers look, when the time comes.
I mean, think about it. You can afford to move to Frisco but you can’t afford a car and a place to keep it, not even a used Yaris? What kind of lifestyle do you think these people have, those people who think, oh small fixer-upper in Noe for $1.5 million let’s BUY BUY BUY? It’s the kind that entails lots of social engagements and traveling about, so let’s buy/lease a Mini Cooper or a Prius.
If San Francisco even had a mediocre big city transit system, maybe things would be different. But we don’t so oh well.
So bring on the VW’s and the Honda Civicses.
And, specially in the the Western Addition and areas even further west, and also down in the southern reaches of town, bring on the pickups and SUV’s.
