STREET PARKING BELONGS TO HAYES VALLEY RESIDENTS NOT TO FOREIGN (CANADA-- GETAROUND---ZIPCAR HERTZ A DELWARE CORPORATION EXEMPT FROM PARKING TICKETS
At the risk of taking this all too seriously, a quick Google search reveals that Getaround, which lets people rent their cars to their neighbors, is based in San Francisco, though its vice president of marketing was born in Canada (A-HA!). ZipCar is based in Boston, and owned by New Jersey-based Avis, not Florida-based Hertz -- but we digress.
No word yet on whether the car owners who take up the other 99 percent of Hayes Valley's curb spaces are 100 percent native San Franciscans with a legitimate birthright to free parking.
As for the flyer opposing the SFMTA's plans to daylight up to 30 parking spots to improve visibility between drivers and pedestrians:
JUST SAY NO! No removal of any parking spaces in HAYES VALLEY
Parking belongs to the citizens -businesses--taxpayers & voters!
