SF to visitor: Thanks for dropping by, chump
As a fourth-generation Californian, I thought I was fairly familiar with traffic problems in San Francisco.
Recently I stayed in the city to care for my daughter who was not feeling well. She lives in the Marina District, not far from where my grandmother and her family lived since before the turn of the century.
I spent more time checking to see which days I could park on which streets than I did caring for her. My whole time there was spent watching the clock so I could move my car.
I did get one ticket, which I paid promptly, but I certainly didn't feel welcomed in this city that I have always loved.
