SoCal Man Nixes Moving to S.F. After Car Gets Towed in Bernal Heights

Peter, you just might fit right in here in San Francisco
A few weeks ago we regaled readers with parking drama over in Bernal Heights -- as you might recall, two neighbors were hoping to resolve their parking problems with really passive-aggressive notes. No word on how that saga ended, but here's more parking excitement from the pleasant hamlet of Bernal Heights.

Peter, a random dude from Santa Barbara, got a real taste of San Francisco beyond the regular tourist traps. As Bernalwood notes, the former East Coast resident decided to travel the nation to find which city he might call home next. While road-tripping through California, Peter made the foolish mistake of parking his car in Bernal Heights for a few days while he flew to a wedding in Boston.

Much to Peter's surprise and disgust, he found his car gone -- towed away -- when he returned from his delightful trip from the East Coast.

Based on this horrific parking experience, Peter decided San Francisco wasn't for him. But he sure as hell wasn't going to leave without giving us San Franciscans a piece of his mind.

Here's Peter's note to us, per the Bernalwood Press:

Great, that's one less asshole with a car that we have to worry about!

I have seen first hand how corrupt San Francisco's meter maids can be. I use to be a bike messenger in SF and dozens of times I have watched a person pour $2.00 worth of change into a meter and then as soon as the person went into a building a meter maid and tow truck driver sitting in the tow truck across the street, would get out, run across the street and write a ticket and slim jim the door, hook it up and tow it off. If you  want to support this in your city you should get your head examined. If you live in SF you should probably use the public transit, walk or bike anyways. You do not own the public spaces for parking like you think just because you can afford to pay some other richer person a lot of money to rent your place. To slag a person that left their car for a few days and call the corrupt system to come steal the guy's car is so wrong. Did it ever cross your mind that maybe they were hurt and in the hospital? I guess only the rich can afford to live in SF. When the big quake comes again, I for one will not give a damn about you and your precious parking places as, most of the good folks got ran out of that city years ago and the only ones left are those that think they are better than everybody not living there.

Wait till he goes to any East Coast city in the snow and discovers the unwritten rules about placeholders (cones, chairs, chains, whatever) after you've shoveled out your own spot.

If you left your car on the street for several days in most east coast cities, there would be one cotter pin left in the space when you got back, douchetard.

I'm a resident in a neighborhood similar to Bernal Heights. While I think the OP can take her car hate and shove it, I have no sympathy for the car stasher either. People like him (and ppl from other hoods who dump their cars for as many days as they can get away with on my unrestricted  street) are the reason I can't find a place to park on my own street. There's a 72-hour law, people. If your car doesn't look like it belongs on my street, you're getting a notice. When those 72 hours have passed if your car's still there, then it's off to impound. Solution?1) pay for a garage spot somewhere2) park it in your own hood where you can watch and move it3) sell itTowed guy gets no sympathy from me.

He should have stuck around to get a real flavor of San Francisco's sense of entitlement -- he barely scratched the surface.
