    That Examiner editorial contains a nice little paragraph about the parking meter plans, and how they affect the poor poor drivers.

  • Yeah, and I like how they say “MUNI” is the one pursuing the parking meter extension. Um, MUNI is a part of SFMTA, not the whole thing.

    “piling even greater stress on drivers foolhardy enough to live in or visit San Francisco.” That is also a great line. If you own a car in SF and feel the need to drive it everywhere, then you are foolhardy!
