General Motors has said it wants to deploy a fleet of self-driving Chevy Bolts for a commercial ride-sharing service at some point in 2019. But ahead of that, GM’s self-driving unit, GM Cruise, is aiming to deploy autonomous cars without a driver at the wheel as part of a pilot program in San Francisco that, emails…
Someone—Bird founder Travis VanderZanden, formerly of Uber—decided it was a great idea to litter the streets of San Francisco with tiny electric-driven scooters. He raised $300 million to put these tiny EVs on street corners. Speaking to a friend who lives in the Potrero Hill neighborhood, this was seemingly a…
Just a week after the deadly Uber crash in Arizona, a self-driving car in San Francisco was ticketed for being too close to a pedestrian, according to KPIX, with a witness capturing a photo of the scene. Cruise, for its part, denies the car was doing anything unsafe, and said it has data to prove it.
In 1906, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona, Alaska and Hawaii hadn’t yet entered the Union. The cars of the time were spindly, horse carriage-looking things with spluttering engines. They shared the road with actual horse-drawn carriages. And 1906 wasn’t even that long ago.
San Francisco ordered an investigation into whether Uber and Lyft are “public nuisances,” which makes them sound like the college kids next door. But it’s way worse than that—the investigation is not only into whether the companies’ drivers create road hazards, but also into their service of the poor and disabled.
California regulators have ordered Uber to stop its brand new self-driving ride-sharing service in San Francisco on its very first day of operation for not having a state permit necessary for the program, according to the Associated Press.
You would think that, by now, members of police forces all over the country have been in dozens of “Guys, we need to stop getting caught with our pants down” seminars. Apparently that’s not the case in the Bay Area, where the leader of a group of dirtbike riders notorious for pulling stunts on city streets has been…
Justin Majeczky was perched high above the Golden Gate Bridge on Slacker Hill executing some time-lapse photography last night when something showed up in his frame that he surely didn’t expect—a Trident D5 ballistic missile launched by the USS Kentucky off the coast of Southern California.
Police in San Francisco this weekend arrested a bicyclist for attacking a ZipCar with a u-lock during a Critical Mass ride. Watch the below video of the attack, feel its seething and pointless rage, and witness what may be the most stereotypically San Franciscan crime of recent memory.
It's one thing to have your flight delayed for a long time. At least you can grab some food or drinks and hang out. But if there's nobody working at those restaurants and bars, you're in for a miserable day — and that's what's currently happening at San Francisco International Airport this morning.
Two San Francisco cops filed 100 tickets in 10 hours on this one stretch of road, 98 of which were for speeding. It's pretty clear why.
In rush hour.
After receiving a cease-and-desist from the San Francisco City Attorney, MonkeyParking – the app enables dicks to sell their public parking spaces in SF – is shutting down its service in the city.
Apparently some nutter hopped out of his Ford F-150, set it on fire, and danced around it blocking four lanes on the San Francisco Bay Bridge this morning.
San Francisco is a lovely city, but it's getting a pretty nasty problem with douchebag infestation, and this new app, MonkeyParking, sure as shit isn't helping. Essentially, the app lets you auction off whatever public parking spot you find. You know, just like a real monkey, only more of a greedy asshole.
It took $6.4 billion and 11-and-a-half years to build the new, hopefully earthquake-proof eastern span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. That's a lot of money and time, but now you can watch the last five years of construction happen in just four minutes.
An oil tanker has brushed against a support beam of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge.
Parallel parking is tricky, and especially on hills. Once you've figured out how to stuff your car into a space sideways, you have to (or should) find someplace to lodge your tires to keep the car from rolling down the hill when you've left it behind.
