San Francisco: Parking Signs
In typical California (Bay Area) fashion, if there's a right way and wrong way to do something, they'll inevitably figure out a new and even more wrong way to do something. Take parking signs (next to the Train Station) for examples of how they want to kill people, and do things in the least intelligent way possible.
Pay or die
So imagine you're a civil engineer, or human interface guy, or something that just doesn't like seeing stupid things. And you stumble across this.
Since that wasn't annoying enough, they fixed it more.
There used to be a walking lane, a row of perpendicular slanted parking, a bike lane, 2 car lanes... so they spent millions of dollars to fix it. Now it has a bike lane, parallel parking (1/3rd the parking), 1 driving lane (half the traffic flow), and a spacious walking path that is used but nowhere near full. So the city: spending your money to increase traffic and parking problems at once. Gee thanks.
In the end, I don't care what stupid things a city does. I only visit SF weekly, yet there's so many dumb things they do, you have to wonder about all of the IQ's of SF city workers. It is not any one dumb thing, it's sort of all of them together. The best way to put up a parking sign seems to be the least of it. But still hints and the degree of dumbfuckery that is the bay area.
