Why did the cop cross the road? To nab a hasty motorist. Okay, it's not that funny -- but who among us can resist the opportunity to pen a variation on the classic chicken joke?

Negligent drivers beware: Your reckless ways won't be tolerated today. An Ingleside Police Station newsletter penned by Captain David Lazar states that "pedestrian stings" will be taking place at Mission and Highland, Alemany and San Juan, Bosworth and Arlington, Geneva and London and the Cortland corridor.The sting will take place between 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. and will be carried out by Lazar and others. The captain writes, "We are concerned with pedestrian safety in these areas and it is essential that motorists stop for pedestrians in the crosswalk!"

As reported here

on this page, previous stings have entailed plainclothes police

officers sauntering across cross walks in the hopes of spying a speed

demons who fail to yeid to pedestrians. And they were pretty successful.


promises a report of the stings success in tomorrow's newsletter.

Here's hoping his undercover perambulators make it to the other side in

one piece.

  • 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.'"
