SF Paratransit Vans Now [DO NOT] Have the Name of the Driver on the Side, As If They Were Fighter Jets?Tuesday, April 14th, 2015
[UPDATE: Hoo boy, I’ve just discovered the red circles on the sides of these vans are to honor those “who helped make paratransit possible” – see Comments. My bad. But seriously, I thought regular drivers had their names stamped on the side to give them more pride in work, to encourage them to drive and park more safely. (Of course, I still think that’s a good idea, even if the drivers wouldn’t like it…)]
Well, this kind of thing should be mandatory for Toyota Prius drivers:
And Interim Mayor Ed Lee’s Chevy Volt should have this too, the better to spot when it’s double parked.
If I were a driver, I’d ask for a radio call sign like Maverick, Goose, or Jester…
An Oddity: A Big Rig-Style Smokestack Atop a Van Assisting With the Heist Production in Haight AshburyFriday, April 10th, 2015
First up, some signage to learn the locals that our Dear Leader is fully on board with the production of this heist movie, so step off, hippies:
And is this a rolling coal diesel exhaust coming out of this van parked on Stanyan, the better to power a phalanx of electronic gear?
Sure looks that way.
I’ve never seen a smokestack on the top of a van before…
Disturbia: Trail of “Bloody” Footprints on Hayes Leads to $5 Million House That Used to be a Baptist Church – Good Friday?Saturday, April 4th, 2015
Via Nuala Sawyer:
(Now I’ll tell you, whenever I leave bloody footprints, the trail generally, how do you say, attenuates as I move on. Moving on…)
Sure seems curious that this trail starts at the more-trafficked part of the NoPA / Western Addition and leads to 601 Broderick, the “THERE GOES THE NEIGHBORHOOD” house, which, of course, used to be Gethsemane Baptist Church.
And then this building got sold for $5 million(!) as a Single Family Home.
And now it stands out, IMO, in an area of expensive houses.
Oh, here you go, CurbedSF’s Tracy Elsen called these transactions “our absolute favorite flip of the year.”
And here’s some assigned reading from Building Talker James Hill
But of course, I don’t know who did what to create those imprints…
[UPDATE: Nick Turner, an Editor employed by Bloomberg notes:
“Think the green vans are groceries (Fresh) and white ones are contractors they use for Prime deliveries. Not 100% sure, though.”]
I’m a little auspicious of this one:
Oh, and Amazon, check out CVC 26708, Material Obstructing or Reducing Driver’s View, conveniently located after the jump. (Unless that doesn’t apply to your operation – I can’t tell if it does. But the spirit of this law certainly should apply to your operation, Amazon.)
Segregated skies to match the segregated ‘hoods below:
