We absolutely admit it: owning a car in San Francisco is just plain ridiculous. The city has over 800,000 residents and only, like, 23 places to park. Throw in those pesky tourists and commuters, and basically, if you find a spot, you should just leave your car there forever.
Except, oh right: street cleaning. And two hour parking limits. And the fact that an inch of your bumper is just slightly blocking someone’s driveway, and oopsie! You just got towed. Of course, you can avoid getting one of the 1.7 million SF parking tickets issued each year by just renting a spot. Sure, it will probably be in an inconvenient location and cost you $400/month, but at least you won’t have to drive around for 45 minutes every night looking for a space.
So... yeah. Clearly, there’s pretty much nothing that could make all of the money you spend buying, insuring, maintaining, driving, and parking a car in SF worth it. Nothing, of course, except these 15 things.
