Muni drivers run red lights all the time — and now we have a dashcam video to prove it. 

YouTube user boris4ka posted this video he/she shot with a handy dashboard camera which shows a Muni bus blowing a red light at 19th Ave / Park Presidio and Cross Over Drive on Jan. 20. According to boris4ka, "Muni bus runs a solid red light that was red for a few seconds already, causing another car to slam on the brakes to avoid an accident."

Watch:



We contacted Muni spokesman Paul Rose to explain this bad driving. We will update you when we get some information. 

Update: Rose emailed us the following statement:
Safety is our top priority and we take incidents like these very seriously. We will use this footage to get more details about what took place and follow-up with those involved.

  • 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.'"
