    Today we check out some don't do's of San Fran, based on www.sftravel.com's article.

    Don’t pack a tropical wardrobe; the mercury hovers around 60 degrees even in summer.

    Don’t park on a hill or even a slope without cramping your wheels to the curb, setting the hand brake and putting the car in parking gear. It’s the law.

    Don’t stand directly behind a cable car gripman; you’ll get the wind knocked out of you when he jerks back on the brake lever.

    Don’t send for an ambulance if you hear a chorus of moans, groans, grunts and wails, it’s the foghorns.

    Don’t carry a milk pail to Cow Hollow; the old dairy district west of Van Ness Avenue has become a popular shopping sector.

    Don’t call cable cars trolleys; they’re powered by the moving steel cable you hear humming in the slot beneath your feet.

    Don’t plan to go swimming in San Francisco Bay unless you’re a member in good standing of the Polar Bear Club.

    Don’t board a public conveyance without exact fare; the drivers don’t make change.

    Don’t be caught without an umbrella; the coastal mists are capricious.

    Don’t color the bridge over the Golden Gate gold; it’s International Orange.

    It’s ’”the city by the bay” not “the city on the bay”
    Above all, don’t call it “Frisco” or “San Fran.”

    DON'T bring an umbrella to San Francisco. The streets are littered with the broken umbrellas that our frequent winds destroy. But not to worry. Most San Franciscans have memories of the first and..................last..........time they used an umbrella.

    I say San Fran and trolley lol. The ONLY advice I can give is to be mindful of the flow of traffic where ever you are. Walk in the walking lanes in the right direction, don't stop in the middle of a walk way, or bicycle way. We're friendly up until you stop in front of us.

    BTW Wil Mees comments are correct-just to add a bit more: Never call San Francisco "Frisco or San Fran" lol it is like nails on a chalk board to those of us who live here. We call it "the City" or "SF" if you must. If parking on a hill part was correct: wheels away from curb up a hill and towards curb down a hill. If you don't do that expect a ticket. People in the city are decent but park 6 inches slightly blocking their driveway and you will get your car towed. That part about the umbrella is not true. Except in the winter (late October to mid April) However, DRESS IN LAYERS!!!!!!!!! when you visit. =) The mornings in the city start out gloomy and the fog rolls out of most of SF by 11am (except like the Aves). When the fog rolls back in around 4pm the winds pick up and it gets cool. So shorts and flip flops are never a good idea unless you like it cold or live in the East Bay. San Franciscans are tolerant, helpful and fun people. All people are welcome =) Peace!

    how about what not to do if you should ever have the misfortune to have to go to Swansea south Wales? I will start of by giving you a couple of tips, 1 don't ever give change to the drug addicts that beg on the streets just incase a copper should see you because they will want your ID then proceed to search you and your belongings and whoever else is with you, 2 for God's sake make sure you don't drop anything onto the ground in the city be it accidentally or on purpose (which you should do anyway) not even a tiny bit of your sandwich filling or you'll get fined, 3 never go into Swansea City centre by car, nightmare.

    The "Golden Gate Bridge doesn't refer to the color of the bridge, it is named for the straight it spans. This is called the "Golden Gate" because it is the entrance to the San Fransisco Bay, where most of the Gold went.

    1) Don't go into the worst parts of the Tenderloin unless you're packing heat or in a big group. BTW - the worst part happens to be the bit closest to the Bart station around Powell and Union Sqr.
    2) Don't give money to panhandlers.
    3) Don't engage in conversation with random creeps on the street - they will try - believe me.
    4) Even if it's 60 degrees in midtown, take a jacket if you go west of Van Ness, it might be 40 in the Sunset or Richmond.
    5) Don't go to a music event in Golden Gate Park and make friends with random hippy meth tweekers. A girl from Canada did that and lost her life.

    How about if your at a red light on a steep hill in San Francisco, your driving a automatic, do you just keep your foot on the break? or do you pull the break up and put it in park until the light is green?

    • RaymondHng
      RaymondHng 5 months ago

      Keep your foot on the brake when stopped at a red light on a hill when driving a car with automatic transmission. When the light turns green, quickly remove your foot from the brake and put it on the accelerator. If you are fast enough, you do not need to use the parking brake. Same thing when driving a car with manual transmission.
