Unless I’m Mistaken, What This “GREEN DIESEL ONLY!” Sticker on This School Bus Means is Really “DIESEL ONLY”Friday, January 15th, 2016
The basic point of having a DIESEL ONLY sticker next to the fuel filler is to tell people to not to try to put gasoline into a diesel bus. So tacking on the word “green” in front seems to be more of a marketing effort:
What if one put some of the other seemingly infinite types of diesel into this rider – what would happen?
Nothing, I’ll bet.
Reminds me of the phrase “clean coal.”

How To Drive in Frisco: Straight Down the Middle of the Road, Sometimes – A Crosswalk Between Two Hospital BuildingsFriday, December 4th, 2015
San Francisco’s horrible pedestrians might try to dart into the street from either side, as here on Hayes:
So why would you hew so close to the right side of this this road? If there’s no oncoming traffic, then it’s straight down the middle for me. I guess I could get a ticket for leaving my lane, but I’m still waiting for that, and it’s been a while.
And actually, ideally, considering sightlines, you’d be even further into the opposite lane at this particular location.
It Is Written.
Here it is, looking west at around 37th Avenue:
And here’s what you should be looking at – the aging SFPD SUV with radar on the left, the 30 MPH speed limit sign in the middle, and the SPEED LIMIT 25 MPH / SENIOR CITIZEN FACILITY signs on the right:
Read all about it here, courtesy of a disgruntled Prius driver what got a ticket last year, when the speed limit zones on this stretch of Fulton went 35-25-35. As you can see, these days it goes 30-25-30, but the concept’s the same.
One would think SFGov would want to put in a few more traffic signals in this area, but one would be wrong.
