Paloma Ave

Down goes Chester!

Would be interesting to see an autonomous taxi or other AV drive down El Camino where the lane lines in the northbound direction have been wiped out by construction. Reminiscent of when Kramer adopted and doted on a highway by “widening” the lanes.

If you see an AV stopped on ECR, it’s trying to figure out what to do.

The ECR stripes are sort of like water - "you don't know the value of water until the well runs dry". I have noticed how much I miss the stripes and what is it--a 20 minute task?

Today's SF Examiner goes a bit deeper on Cruise driverless taxis. You know things are rough at the Comicle when the Examiner out-reports you with ease. Salient points:

--Cruise declares the taxis can pull over to the curb to load/unload. No explanation for the video showing they did do it in some instances. Cruise notes that it is actually legal for commercial vehicles to use a traffic lane to load/unload passengers. Sort of like how Amazon, UPS, etc just stop on ECR to deliver packages without getting a ticket.....

--Because there is no driver to sign a ticket, SF has directed the police to not issue traffic tickets to robotaxis. The CPUC who issued the permit sort of blew this off, but the DMV sort of punted the question but seems to think it has the authority to revoke a permit issued by the CPUC. Go figure. The rest of it including classic SF whining is here:
