I heard both cars were cited...$40 tickets issued. I suspect the scenario Joe imagined leading to this is precisely what took place, with neither motorist being aware of the street being ONE WAY.
Now they know.

On the other hand, given the high cost of parking in many places in San Francisco, they might actually view the $40 price tag as being a relative bargain compared to the $20/$30 per hour cost in an SF garage (or the routinely vandalized, broken window one gets for parking in The City).


I saw a parking garage near Oracle. Almost full..$140.00 per 6 hours.


Pro driving tip. If the parking meter is next to your trunk you are pointed the wrong way.

Pro driving tip number 2. If you are backing up without looking over your right shoulder at what is behind you just stop it.

Paloma Ave

Having lived on a one way portion of Paloma Avenue for the past 31 years there is a regular flow of cars driving the wrong way + most of the bicyclist are also driving the wrong way.

Apparently 99% of bicyclist are unaware that they are to follow the vehicle code. That is one reason why the current proposal to allow bicyclist more 'special access' on the blocks north and south of Broadway is such a BAD idea.

But I am sure that the very vocal minority of bike riders will prevail.

Handle Bard

Agreed. 99% of us cyclists break at least some law of the road. I guess I knew of the one-way rule but never thought about it or broke it as far as I can remember.

40 bucks seems cheap for the ticket.
