Ironic? Earnest? 'No Tech-Zone' sign shows up in San Francisco

This image was removed due to legal reasons.

A number of traffic-like signs have appeared in San Francisco's Alamo Square, barring locals from using cell phones, tablets, laptops, or smart devices or face a $300 fine. The signs are posted below new traffic signs that are more mundane.


Presumably, this is a joke. But maybe not, considering money means nothing in San Francisco.

Who even knows.
