    A caveat: I actually really like having the tourists in San Francisco.  They are generally happy, having a great time, open to conversation and their environment, etc., etc.  A lovely addition to most of my days.  However . . .

    Could the City please enforce noise pollution laws against the open-topped 2-person go-carts that tourists rent?  They sound like gas-driven lawnmowers gone mad.  Why not require them to be electric, or at least as quiet as a gasoline driven passenger car?  A good set of helmets wired for the audio tour sound would also help, since each time one passes by, it blares that part of the tour for everyone to hear.

    Many’s the time I’ve seen a map covering the windshield of one of those while the PA shouted “OK, you’re doing great!”

    I totally agree. Tourists are great, but it seems like we have plenty of companies that cater to tourists and don’t care about their impacts on SF ir it’s residents.
