After spending "thousands of dollars" fighting with Muni for access to bus surveillance video ABC7's resident muckraker Dan Noyes has uncovered what anyone who's ever ridden a Muni bus already knows in their heart of hearts: a lot of Muni drivers suck at driving. But just how terrible are they?

"Statistics from the Federal Transit Association show that Muni had more than twice the rate of motor bus injury accidents in 2006 compared to agencies of similar size in Denver, Portland and Orange County, and more than three times that of Dallas."

These statistics come only a few days after Noyes reported on the charming Muni driver named Anthony Jones who greeted a wheelchair-bound rider thusly: "I don't know what the heck they let you guys on here for anyhow." Check out all the hard-won video clips here.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
