      For a large city, it looks relatively truck friendly (i.e., room to make wide turns and such). Doesn't seem to be much traffic, either... was this on a weekend?

      I can't remember if this was taken on a weekend or not. I spent four days in Oakland so at least some of it was during the week. This is Broadway so it is a main street in downtown Oakland. There is a lot of industry here and so a lot of truck traffic and the streets do seem to be wide. This picture was taken just outside the Oakland convention center and this truck had been servicing the convention. In this picture he is just leaving. Interstate 880 is just a few blocks down the street. I don't think I would count on this picture as being representative of traffic in the area and I know that 880 can be a nightmare to travel on at commute times. If you are interested in getting a general feel of Downtown Oakland have a look at my set "Four Days In Oakland".
