Eyes on the Street: Parked Cars Block Bike Lanes Near Ballpark

9:52 AM PDT on August 18, 2009

photo2.jpgTerry Francois Boulevard, site of new SFpark meters, on Wednesday.

An anonymous photographer snapped the above photo last Wednesday on Terry Francois Boulevard, across from AT&T Park, where SFpark electronic meters were recently installed. It seems one driver got the wacky idea that the new meters require cars to park perpendicularly, across the bike lanes, and the other drivers followed?

We're not quite sure why it happened, or why it was confusing to drivers. As of Sunday, it looks like things have been sorted out, and drivers are handling the new smart parking system just fine. 

See more pictures of the new SFpark meters, and cars parked correctly, after the jump.

Got a photo you think would make a great Eyes on the Street? Add it to our Flickr pool.
