> Wednesday, February 22, 2006: Prevent Runaways
So, I guess this is a typical San Francisco traffic sign. There is indeed a specific procedure to follow when you park your car on a slope: turn your wheels toward the curb, set the hand brake and leave the car in gear. And you better follow these rules or you will get fined. I got fined for all sorts of things in San Francisco, but never for that one, so I don't know the amount of this fine (I'm keeping my fingers crossed... and my wheels curbed).

I love the old Vics. I've even been known to shoot a frame or two at Alamo Square... how touristy is THAT? (submitted on February 22, 2006)
Richmond is relentless in its towing practices as well (and it costs a fortune!) (submitted on February 22, 2006)
Beautiful shot manuel. Love the houses in the background and the branches next to the sign. It looks gloomy enough that if the sign said Amityville I'd believe it! (submitted on February 22, 2006)
Dorothee: j'imagine que ca a du arriver de temps en temps avant que ces regles soient mises en place. Sinon, je n'ai pas entendu parler d'incidents recents...
Michael: at first, I wasn't following what you were talking about, now I got it. It looks like you and Mr Pretzels both understood the sign properly! ;-)

Was in may 04 on VanNess @ broadway.
Someone Car - first ticket: more than 2 hours parking
second ticket: more than 4 hours parking
third ticket:: more than 24h parking + wheels not curbed + front licence plate something (half unscrewd or seomthing) + whatever.
Sorry, I couldnt figure out what was the excat "wheels not curb" part from the tickets in front of me. Maybe an additional $30 ?
So I'd guess you get a ticket ONLY if your car ran away OR if you P..ed the Interceptor with something else, and he's starting to "chercher la petite bete". (submitted on February 27, 2006)
