Mind you, Burger King has enough trouble in the notoriously high cost 415 without worrying about delivery, but read the news and turn the pages, below. (Looks like Oakland’s going to beat us, once again.)

First, let’s review so-called BikeLaw:
“Pedestrians Always Have the Right of Way.”
Now take a look at what happened to Andrew Scal, the latest San Francisco pedestrian to get clobbered by a bike on Market Street:
See? The poor guy had the right of way (per the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, anyway) and yet he got hit by a cyclist.
Hey, now let’s see what the SFBC has to say about speeding cyclist Chris Bucchere:
This is it, all of it, apparently.
(Like Voldemort, they dare not speak his name?)
I guess taxpayer-funded lobbying groups such as the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition don’t want to discuss off-message topics…
This is the face of MUNI Fraud.
North Face Girl didn’t pay her $2 fare, looks like.
So a crew of three SFMTA Inspectors had to take her down, for tout le monde to see.

But what happens when a cable car driver steals a six dollar fare, like something that happens all the time every day?
Do MUNI Inspectors ever hand out citations for that?
I don’t know.

You’d never see this back in the day, I’ll tell you. Back then, you’d never see this kind of sign at a fast food place.
Back then, the signs you’d see on this topic always used to say, “NOT ACCEPTING EBT” and the like.
Like at the Real Foods in Cow Hollow, for instance.
But things are changing…
[UPDATE: According to somebody who ought to know, this is not what a Lt. Gov. motorcade looks like these days. So, my bad.]
I don’t know, why are the lights on on these CHP prowlers?
To make the people inside feel good?
Looks that way.
I mean, this is the entire motorcade, so it’s not like cross-traffic is being stopped or anything.
I mean, don’t you want to be kind of low profile? Oh, I see, you feel that not enough people pay attention to
you, so everybody stare at me while I ride to the Starbucks?

IMO, our California Highway Patrol shouldn’t always do what
the Lt. Gov VIPs want.
But here’s why it’s generally in the interest of the CHP to patronize electeds.
(Oh, and next time you roll through town, CHP, in addition to the flashing lights, you should honk your horns and activate your sirens, like every minute. Hurray!)
