Did not see it but I'm not surprised. SF.. especially downtown (financial district) is a cluster @@@@. Lots of Buses, Bikes, trams, LOTS of foot traffic, etc..
There is almost nowhere to pullover LEGALLY, in downtown sf.
There are metermaids on every corner waiting to give tickets out. I paid like 1k in tickets and thats probably below avg. for drivers there lol.. but its the cost of doing business there and cant write it off. But im sure allow of drivers cut corners.. illegal uturns etc.. but the city is CASHING in on our little shortcuts lol.
Because ridershare is a Big part of people’s lives in SF And probably every 3rd or 4th car on the road is an uber/lyft, they should allow a quick 20-30sec pickup/drop off.
