  • A guy in Pacific Heights once gave me the same parking space complaint as that SF Weekly Mission post- I had parked my scooter in a little stub adjacent to his driveway, but that was where they “always parked” (partially blocking their driveway). I saw his point, but yeah- streets are first come, first served. At least this particular note says “please”! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks to Susan King for getting Sunday Streets to where it is. I am disappointed that the city is now contracting, not expanding the program. That’s mostly because as a city we refuse to pay for it. Given how popular it is, we should have a ballot proposition to have a weekly Sunday Streets fully funded.
