S.F. Tourists Take a Vacation From Common Sense
Gil Riego Jr.
San Francisco tourists are best known for creating congestion along the Golden Gate Bridge, stepping out into intersections to get that "one great shot of Coit Tower" and turning Fisherman's Wharf into a local's worst nightmare.
But amid the keychain shopping and cable car rides, we've noticed something fun: Many of these tourists aren't just taking a break from work, they're taking a long sabbatical from common sense, which ultimately lands them in some hilariously uncomfortable situations.
Here's some of our favorite dumb tourist moments:
Great Escape via GoCar
Earlier this month we discovered a convoy of yellow GoCars streaming across the Bay Bridge and how they ended up with a $100 tow fee. Well, here's another video from January, taken from vantage point of the GoCar. And while one GoCar occupant says "the guy said take it anywhere," the locals zoom around them honking and laughing. That's right, we honk and laugh because we know your tow fee is coming.
