As seen in the North of NoPA DivCo Divisadero Corridor Western Addition:
MUNI sure aint dog-friendly.
All right, when you’re doing your ENG (Electronic News Gathering) on the streets of San Francisco, as this one was doing the day after Donald Trump somehow got elected President, you’ve got some basic things to worry about.
The first is crime – either somebody will want to steal your stuff, at gunpoint sometimes, or they’ll want to vandalize your mobile news van. One way to handle this is to maintain a low profile. One way to do that is paint your van white in a plain vanilla wrapper, so that’s why most networked news vans are unmarked in the 415.
And the second, well, it’s handling complaints from the Gentle Viewers and passersby who start complaining about all the fumes your news van spews our hour after hour. So you attach a garden hose to direct exhaust up to the roof, thusly:
Like, how does this help?
Here’s the other way of doing it:
I’ll tell you, I can see how this kind of thing could lead to problems, you know, mechanically, but my real question is HOW DOES THIS HELP, AT ALL?
And here’s the SFMTA’s official defense.
Anyway, the innocuous posts have been replaced, officially. The average driver would typically infringe upon the neutral zone at the very least and that’s not the case anymore…
Here’s a robot car in The Richmond:
And here’s what John Law has to say:
5200. (a) When two license plates are issued by the department for
use upon a vehicle, they shall be attached to the vehicle for which
they were issued, one in the front and the other in the rear.
I’m thinking there are reasons you’d especially want an FLP on Uber’s experimental cars, but maybe that’s just me…
So this is Twitter mural in the ‘Loin, so that gives us The Twitterloin, a phrase endorsed by our East Coast Media Elites:
Ironically, a good portion of the Tworkforce at the Twitter would have prefered being HQ’ed down in nearby Brisbane, CA.
Ironically, Twitter would’ve have moved into that building at 10th and Market anyway, without any enterprise zone tax incentives.
All the deets are here, on Hoodline.
So instead of cheating a bit on the turn and putting their right wheels on or over the buffer zone, drivers will need to stay in the lane and make a lower radius turn:
One assumes the SFFD / SFPD Bomb Squad knows enough to just run them over if need be.
Seems mostly harmless…
