Multiple tickets on this ride indicate that this otherwise-legal parking job will end up costing the driver three-figures.
(What’s stopping a PCO from coming back every hour to add yet another ticket for the same violation? Don’t know…)

When parking in San Francisco, you should always curb your wheels. If you can’t tell whether you’re pointing uphill or down, just pour out a little water from your bottle into the gutter.
The way the water goes tells you which way the hill goes. Or just look at what all the other drivers on the block did. Easy peasy, right?
The driver of this VW Cabrio made the wrong choice, so a ticket from SFMTA was the result. Parking Control Officers will spot this infraction from a block away and then make a special trip just for you.
New Recreation and Park Department Director Phil Ginsburg probably beat you out of bed yesterday morning, based upon this account written up in his new SF Rec and Park Blog.

Read “Day 21: A Visit Through GGP at Dawn” to learn about Golden Gate Park‘s overnight camping rules and how the Park Rangers enforce them.
You know people are camping in GGP when you see all those empty propane bottles strewn about:
And check it:
“I’m told there are actually underground websites that inform people on how and where to camp illegally in Golden Gate Park.”
Did not know that.
Anyway, check out the blog if you want to see Phil’s impressions of this and that.
Check out this creek that feeds Lloyd Lake in Golden Gate Park. See it on the right side, flowing away and to the right? Doesn’t it appear to be going uphill and around the corner?
Check it out yourself the next time you’re on JFK Jr. Drive near Transverse in San Francisco.
