SFPD Is out in Force During Black Friday

Posted By on Fri, Nov 23, 2012 at 12:05 PM


You already know that city streets will be bursting with traffic this Black Friday, but what you probably didn't know was that the cops would be out in force, too.

Motorcycle cops will be cruising the streets making the city safe for little Johnny to go Christmas shopping, and they'll be focusing their attention on downtown neighborhoods, like Union Square, where shoppers congregate.

As you make your way to the malls to get a jump on your Christmas-shopping list, be sure and pay attention to the road, or a traffic ticket could be your next present.

Police say they'll be watching for drivers using their cell phones, carpool and Muni transit lane violators, and people who don't stop for pedestrians. During the first week of this month, 22 people were injured trying to cross the street.

Don't run over little Johnny.

  • 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.'"
