Signs and Wonders

No Parking

Navigating the city’s complex parking restrictions can be a bit daunting. If you’re paying attention, most Department of Parking and Traffic enforcement signs quickly and effectively convey their message to anyone remotely concerned about the risk exorbitant fines or worse; the dreaded tow. However, this strangely confusing piece of public art, located in the city’s once forgotten Dogpatch neighborhood, seems to take it’s stylistic cues more from 1950s bingo card than a conventional municipal sign.

Luckily for those of us without cars, a sign like this can be appreciated purely for it’s bold artistic references rather than it’s practicality.

  1. It looks like some kind of lottery / keno board. It’s like, would you like to gamble on whether or not you will get towed? Cuz we know that half of you are too stupid to figure this the fuck out, and the other half don’t know what fucking day it is… Yeah, it’s a gamble, that. You thought Shit house was dead didn’t you? Nope. Still kickin’ out here. Hope you guys are doing well.

  2. P.S. If / when I do die, I will try to leave some kind of scrap book behind at a San Fran swap meet.
