SJ and SFO

To Whomsoever concerned:

Do you realize that with all the one ways in and around SFO and SJ downtowns / financial districts, and with the trams/trains/muni/buses on the road driving at times becomes mission impossible. And of course thanks to the infinite median like yellow lines on one single road, at times it just adds to your confusion and makes one wonder if he is indeed driving in the right direction or if he is driving in the opposite lane. That’s the last thing I need as a driver in such chaotic/confusing places.

Someone who bore the brunt of your brilliant traffic fundae this halloween weekend.

    Those yellow lines are meant to say: stay in your lane, don’t drive like its Madras..
    And why were you in financial district on halloween weekend?

    Boss, since you insist::
    a) single broken line means passing is allowed
    b) single solid line means pass only to avoid a hazard
    c) double solid lines mean passing is a big ‘NO-NO’
    d) combination of a solid line with a broken line means that passing is allowed only on the side with the broken line.

    White color is generally used when traffic on both sides of that line are moving in same direction. Yellow when they are opp. directions!

    Now coming to paint used: (may also depend on ur city or towns budget :P)
    reflective paint -> places with no street/ external road lighting
    saada paint -> places with sufficient lighting

    Phew.. I hope that was sufficient. Now if you can re-take the driving test or surrender your license…
