    The link to the SFGate/Chronicle article about residential parking permits leads to a paywall. Does anyone have a link that will let me actually read it?

    Regarding Cyclelicious’ legislation summary, I always think headphone laws that refer to both ears show how difficult it is to design a perfect law.

    I’m deaf in one ear. It’s legal (as far as I can tell) for me to ride/drive while listening to something in my only good ear, but if my bad ear is covered as well then I’m breaking the law.

    Just remember, chances are you are breaking some law at given time. The only question is whether the cops want to give you a ticket.

    Great idea to let people know that BART is run by elected officials. However, even better would be to include the member’s phone number and e-mail address below their photo, so people can know how to get in touch.

    Incidentally, five of the nine Board members don’t even list a personal e-mail address on the BART Board web site itself: http://www.bart.gov/about/bod

    The ones not listing a personal e-mail address are: Gail Murray, John McPartland, Thomas Blalock, Zakhary Mallett, and Tom Radulovich.

    Bicyclist killed at corner of Fremont and Mary in Sunnyvale this morning: http://www.mercurynews.com/bay-area-news/ci_27996724/sunnyvale-person-dies-vehicle-bicyclist-collision

    I wish my neighborhood had neighborhood parking permits. Cars sit stagnant for 7 days a week. They only move to parking on the sidewalk (I can’t believe the city allows this) for an hour when its time for street cleaning. Some houses on my block have 6-7 cars and no garage. It is insanity. I would be happy to fork over the $110 a month for my car if it would thin the herd up here.

    According to that story about Caltrain it only resulted in a minor injury.

  • Sorry about that. The trick to getting around the paywall is to find a “share access view” link through a social media post. The easiest way to do that is to search the headline on Twitter. Sometimes I forget to do this.

    Thanks for the tip. I will keep that in mind.

  • Elias Zamaria

    That worked. Thanks.
