[Someday, somebody will learn me why we call Central Street Central Avenue – I’ll bet, in some areas, it’s just a skosh wider than its siblings like Lyon or Baker, or maybe there were grander plans for this nothingburger street at some point…]
Get up to speed here on how some jackhole in the North of Panhandle Area part of the Western Addition painted white marks on Central Avenue so that each parker had a regulation 20 feet or something of room. They looked like capital “T’s” to me.
As is typical with neighborhood activists who don’t know what the frack they’re doing, the neighborhood activist who painted the marks didn’t know what the frack he (and it must have been a he, am I right girlfriend?) was doing.
Anyway, you can see the result – appears as if DPW applied paint thinner to each of the T’s yesterday, thusly:

Now, here’s the Minority Report. Let’s say somebody in government wants to put parking meters on each and every residential block in San Francisco. Would that person have DPW or someplace put the parking marks down as a test to see how parkers responded? If such a test lasted three months, would the marks come off on the last day of a quarter, like March 31st, something like that? Uh oh…
Or, these were marks put down by aliens for the coming invasion, ala M. Night Shamalan’s Signs movie? (The secret to stopping the spread of aliens is water, but it’s unknown at this point how to stop the SFMTA from metastasizing…)
Either way, with these last two theories, all’s I can say is courage.
Let’s hope it was just a NIMBY…
