San Francisco is truly a technological hub of the 21-st century!
First, some important milestones.
- 1990 is the year World Wide Web was introduced.
- Estonia started switching to e-government almost 20 years ago.
- 2014 is the year when the city of San Francisco introduced an online system to protest and even pay citations online!
Protesting citations makes no sense but I really wanted to try this amazing online system that everybody was talking about.
We arrived at Mission Street, San Francisco late at night and with a flashlight checked a parking meter that just said "Free Parking." Nothing about street cleaning.
The street was not well lit but we checked all the signs nearby and all we found was a pile of human excrements and a homeless person sleeping next to it.
Judging by the findings it definitely looks like the city of San Francisco is in a severe financial crisis and needs funds but I do not believe that such pointless citations are a good way to refill public coffers.
Thank you for reading!
P.S. And thanks for not towing away my car.
