Striking fear in the hearts of parkers everywhere

This sight sent a definate chill down my spine, as I strode down California Street, heading towards the cable car.

And I don’t even own a car in this city anymore – but I remember, ohhhh, I remember….

    I find that parking on really steep hills helps prevent you from getting a ticket if you are parked for more than 2 hours, plus there is no street cleaning on them.
    A lot of the hills in the Nob Hill area are too steep for those pissant little three wheeled bastard freak vehicles.

    I noticed a LOT of them in my South Berkeley neighborhood last week, the crazy thing is that it was after 6pm, almost 7!!

    I’m hearing the theme to “Jaws” in my head…

    I used to park on 17th street near tartine and they are super aggressive like this – clearing the street each morning for hte commute. Oh the memories of setting my alarm to 7:45 to drag ass over there to move the car in front of the watchful eyes of the meter maids. Like jury duty, it was a truly “sf-only ” crowd, well, with a few walk-of-shamers. I love this photo!

    i threw a half empty coke bottle at one of those devils once in the western addition and that dude chased me around the block until i lost him about 3 minutes later.

    best 3 minutes of my life.

    in parking meter terms, thats about 30 cents.
