We know your Prius is fuel efficient, yes. We know your Prius makes you feel environmentally-friendly, yes. However, your Prius is not a train. Do not try and make it one. If you do it in San Francisco in the sunset tunnel at Duboce Triangle, you'll find yourself the owner of a pretty ticket citing city ordinance 22.521 — blocking railroad tracks. That'll cost you $55, hold up hundreds of people and a bunch of trains and cause yourself all manner of humiliation and ridicule at the hands of your fellow Bay Area citizens. [Hat tip to Brian!]
