    Greenish mixed-use building 998 Alabama St./2850 22nd St., on the corner of 22nd St. and Alabama street formerly with three driveways, one on 22nd St. and two on Alabama St.

    One driveway is for a legitimate 2-car garage on Alabama St., but the other two driveways are bogus. The occupants of the building aggressively enforce the other two former driveways as their own private curbside parking, ticketing and towing cars even though the driveways are no longer in use.

    The former driveway on 22nd St. is now an entrance to a hair salon, and the former driveway on Alabama St. leads to a former loading dock which has been converted on the inside of the building to a normal wall and is no longer in use. Neither driveway is used by vehicles entering or exiting the building, although the owners keep an old picture of a car sticking out of the entrance on 22nd St while the building was being renovated over five years ago.

    Both former driveways have signs up indicating the owners will ticket and tow cars, however neither are legitimate driveways. The owner should be required to remove these signs and convert the curbs to normal curbs in order to return the space for public parking.

    Lately when I try to submit an issue for San Francisco it silently fails to submit. What's going on?
