Over The Line: When Passing SFMTA MUNI Buses on the Left Goes Too Far

TweetI’ve been there myself, occasionally, on the wrong side of the double yellow lines: These days, it’s harder to get past MUNI buses, and streetcars, and unnecessary street sweepers and water sprayer trucks and whathaveyou, oh well. Anyway, this maneuver might save you a minute, or two…

But I think […]

Residential Parking Permit Program Area Q a Huge Success, or Failure, Depending – But Certainly It’s Having an Effect
