    I’m sure Jim appreciates your concern

    Not if you live on Irving and drive a car.

    While discretion is the better part of valor, I guess you must have felt pretty safe, spitting on the windshield of a woman. Real brave of you.

    Tickets are for bicyclists!

    Motorists are allowed to double park wherever they should so desire…especially on Sundays…

    Do that to the wrong entitled jerk and you may find yourself at the wrong end of a semi-automatic.

    Don’t be so hasty. Let’s say we decide “look, we’re going with self-driving cars – that’s the wave of the future”.

    OK – so if we are going to have a fleet of self driving cars – basically Uber without drivers – then it is incumbent upon us to immediately cease permitting any parking in any new residential buildings or retail establishments. it would be folly to build more parking for cars that will never exist.

    Right?

    Yeah stand up for yourself or jerks will walk all over you.

    Simpler idea. Close Irving to private vehicles. Problem solved.

    Now – are their cameras on the J? Would this be a ticketable offense?

    Good point. Those train tracks he parked on are nearly invisible.

    Only a philistine would applaud such incivility.

    Teaching your 2-year old some valuable life lessons! Don’t be surprised when you get a call from the teacher saying your kid spat in another kid’s face and then said “It’s OK. My daddy did it!”

    Women say “safety issue”..men say “pick-up children and help wife in household work”.

    In the end, my observation is “laziness” and “convinience” are replaced by excuses mentioned above. People (include me) will find excuses and
    those who really want to ride will find more and more reasons for it.

    I do agree that women are a step ahead because once you use word “safety”, no one dares to challange you. I mean crime against men is much higher than against women. We live in a much safer world today but also lazy.

    LOL @ The people calling him a jackass and saying “asshole” just barely above their breath *AFTER* the guy got in his car with closed windows and drove away.

    Some entitled princess in her Audi 7 class did that in my neighborhood. She just sat in her car while the J-Church driver jingled his horn, then honked at her then got out and politely asked her to move. I ran over (with a two year old in my hands, no less) and spit on her windshield. She took one look at me and drove off.

    The lanes are not that clearly market. If he knew he is selfish, if not, lets work on it. How about a cop ride in the front of that muni for a week and give out tickets. I’ll take that job at 75% less pay. I need a job, would be happy to also give out tickets for littering.

    You drive a vehicle like this because you are overcompensating for some other shortcoming.

    I bicycle everywhere and have never been delayed more than a minute or two by anything, even a Presidential visit and motorcade.

    Well, if we cant tow them faster, we should charge them for every minute of delay. You wont be able to replace the time and productivity lost to all the people on the train, and the next train, and so on, but these are people with no disregard to others and are oblivious to the fact there are train tracks right there. Some people just should not be allowed to drive.

    If you are wondering about my video, the train was stuck on 9th between Irving and Judah because the car double parked there and forced the train to wait there for at least a good ten minutes. The metro operator rang the bell, sounded the horn multiple times, and there was nobody in the car and no person responding; until the clown finally got in his car and sped off.

    Cool, thanks!

    These are the renderings over which I pointed out to an SFMTA engineer that a protected intersection or two might be worth looking into–which elicited a deer-in-headlights look and eventual response that “well, no one’s done that before.”

    The very next day, this came out:

    And for the record, the monster truck had a blue disabled placard.

    Are you willing to pay for this with your taxes?

    There is no room on Carl to create transit only lanes, unless you feel like pitching to the neighborhood drivers about why their free street parking should go away.

    Even if there was a lane for a car to pass, it is illegal for a driver to pass while a streetcar is stopped and passengers are exiting.

    It might be more accurate to state that the driver who struck Elijah faced no criminal penalties. He would be still be subject to civil penalties,

    Idiot implies stupid. I prefer terms indicating that the person simply does not care

    What a relief it is to know that the Bay Area’s largest city seems to take Vision Zero even less seriously than San Francisco. With any luck, streets and stroads throughout the Bay Area will not change at all for decades to come.

    That the reason why SFMTA don’t blindly widen the sidewalks.When they do this blockage more likely to happen.

    Car drivers are more important than lowly Muni riders, duh.

    It looks much too clean to have been doing any useful work. I can understand a truck that big if someone has to pull a large livestock trailer–but to bring such a road beast into a city like San Francisco shows a lack of “horse sense”. I used to have a more normal-sized pickup, and when I visited SF, it stayed at the motel while I let Muni get me around town. Photo: Lunch stop in Castroville on the way to The City.

    Cars, unlike people, have an absolute right to block trains.

    yes, there is a good way to fix this. take all public transportation underground

    Should have let the passengers off and just sideswiped him and if the train came off the rail, bill him any damage. Lesson learned.

    That idiot will have to pay a few hundred on towing and impound fees. If the driver actually park partially up the curb and stay within the white line it would still be illegal but would only get a citation and not getting towed.

    Yes, in the mobile site. Guess the developer is live testing some code.

    Trucks like that aren’t even for utility. Just look at how absurd it is. They’re for showing off that you have enough money to be a moron buying a huge ass truck in a city that will never be a necessity.

    Take note Willy Brown, motorists need self driving cars, not muni riders. Transit dedicated lanes are solve this problem
