Audi SF: Protect Our Children and Elderly / Protege Nuestros Niños y Los Ancianos

(El español en la parte de abajo) Our neighbors want to live with no risk of traffic violence from drivers on our streets. Since 2004, the sales team at the Audi San Francisco (300 S Van Ness, 94103) dealership have been abusing our public space, making our neighborhood more dangerous and more unpleasant. They are a clear example of a corporation bullying their way to profits with no regard for the impact on the people in their surroundings.  Neighbors have experienced or seen Audi sales team members: Speeding near children, elderly, disabled folks, and adults on 14th Street, Minna Street, Natoma Street, Mission Street, South Van Ness, and Division Streets Parking illegally in the red zone, disabled parking, on the sidewalk and constantly not paying the meters in up to 8 parking spots Driving the wrong way illegally down Minna Street Using physical violence towards traffic enforcement and neighbors  Verbally harassing disabled neighbors who park in the disabled parking spot on South Van Ness and possibly abusing the disability placard system (~4 of the 10 sales team members have a disability placard, which seems like a high percentage) Using verbal threats towards residents who park or request for them to drive at slow speeds Smoking in front of residences  Littering on the street When residents have attempted to request for changes from the Audi dealership sales folks and owner, they have been met with dismissal and refusal that a problem exists. Audi SF Sales Manager and self-proclaimed decision maker has said "when [someone dies] here, we will revisit" their dangerous behavior. See video here. We demand that Audi SF dealership: Stop speeding & playing loud music Stop driving wrong way on Minna Street Use disabled placards for only legitimate disability cases Stop parking on sidewalk & red zone Always pay the parking meters Stop intimidating us when we park near you Stop smoking in front of residences Stop littering on the street, including cigarettes Nosotros pedimos a Audi SF que: Dejen de manejar con alta velocidad Dejen de manejar en contrasentido en calle Minna Dejen de estacionarse en la zona roja y la banqueta Deben pagar el parquímetro No acosen a los vecinos cuando nos queramos estacionar cerca de ustedes Dejen de fumar frente a las viviendas Dejen de tirar basura en la calle, incluyendo cigarillos

Bring back Group B rally

Group B rally regulations (1982-86) allowed for the most spectacular rally cars, and maximized the limits of engineering. This class of rally racing ended after a series of incidents. However, with today's technology and lessons from the past, these safety issues can be resolved, and Group B can return once again. Rally represents liberty, and inspires us to explore the land that nature gave us. The New Physiocratic League supports the return of Group B. _____________________ Wiki Entry: Group B was a set of regulations introduced in 1982 for competition vehicles in sportscar racing and rallying regulated by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA). The Group B regulations fostered some of the fastest, most powerful, and most sophisticated rally cars ever built and is commonly referred to as the golden era of rallying. However, a series of major accidents, some of them fatal, were blamed on their outright speed and lack of crowd control at events. After the death of Henri Toivonen and his co-driver Sergio Cresto in the 1986 Tour de Corse, the FIA disestablished the class, dropped its previous plans to replace it by Group S, and instead replaced it as the top-line formula by Group A. The short-lived Group B era has acquired legendary status among rally fans and automobile enthusiasts in general.

End Front License Plate Requirement for California

Twenty states/U.S. commonwealth no longer require a front license plate.  They are the following: Alabama Arizona Arkansas Delaware Florida Georgia Indiana Kansas Kentucky Louisiana Michigan Mississippi New Mexico North Carolina Oklahoma Pennsylvania Puerto Rico South Carolina Tennessee West Virginia Front license plates are awkward and unsightly and have NO real practical purpose anymore but since automobiles no longer have an actual front bumper the "fake bumper" and "grill" are blended together and have no practical place for a front license plate bracket. If placed improperly in a grill opening the air intake is impeded by the license plate which can slightly reduce the performance and reduce the efficiency of the engine and automobile.   There’s also most cars made after 2018 that say “license plate &/ frame or accessories may block radar system.”  Radar system on cars means safety support as follows: frontal crash, road departure mitigation, blind spot info system, collision mitigation braking system & etc. The brands with what includes the safety features/operation of the vehicle are the following:                           Acura-Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow, Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) Chevrolet-Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning,  Forward Collision Alert, Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking Honda- Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow, Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR) The requirement for a front license plate is NOT enforced evenly - some police officers take it very seriously and issue citations while other police officers see the requirement for a front plate as not important. The way the front plate regulation is enforced is unfair to everyone. There are far more important duties that police officers can do. Let's keep Californians safe plus Let's save some time and money for California.
