Planning Chief Dan Sider told KGO that the code was enacted decades ago for aesthetic reasons, and that no exceptions can be made.

A photo from 34 years ago is not old enough, but one from 1938 is not clear evidence. Sounds like the Planning Department needs to adjust for the times. I can't imagine the red tape and cost this couple faces just to build a garage in S.F.

What's the fine for driving on a parkway?

It sounds like San Francisco is going broke and is trying to find a way to make more money.

One of the homeowners should get a mail order ministerial ordination from a "recognized" church and declare their home and driveway a legal church. Then hire a law firm looking for some pro-bono publicity and let the games begin.

Either that or sell out for big bucks and move to Flathead County.

It's just the price you have to pay if you want to live in a free country?

And thus began the competition to design the Ugliest Legal Garage Ever. Chartreuse, anyone?

They deserve this for being a GIANTS fan.

They're lucky they didn't walk on the dotted line near a squirrel. That's an extra $100 fine.

Wow, I didn't realize SF had fixed the street poo problem and could now concentrate on stuff like this.

If you're going to, etc...be sure to wear some garbage in your hair.

So all those crooners who left their "hearts in SanFran" were refering to the cars they loved but couldn't afford to get out of impound?

@Ledud. you gotta problem with the GIANTS??

what's your team - the SQUIRRELS?

Are you an Atlanta Braves fan too, sfvee? They're the team that won the World Series last year.

@nursecindy - the Braves are ok. I favor the Giants, the Yankees, and of course the Brooklyn Dodgers!!

The problem with parking your own car on your own car pad in San Francisco is that in doing so you displace a homeless family.

@Doug - Touché. Well said, sir. Aesthetics don't apply to homeless camps.
