I recently met a city employee who was painting San Francisco Department of Parking and Traffic logos and “Tow Away” markings on curbs around the Mission. These are the very stencils used to create the curb markings that generate so much pain and anxiety for San Francisco motorists. It also occurred to me that from a revenue perspective, the return-on-investment from a DPT stencil must be huge, given how many expensive parking tickets each one generates. Just the sight of them made my blood pressure rise.
