The saga of tour buses illegally traveling along the streets near Alamo Square continues—this time, via a story from KRON's famed "People Behaving Badly" reporter, Stanley Roberts. 

In his latest segment, Roberts took a visit to Alamo Square Park, which is currently fenced off for construction. But the temporary closure was not his focus: instead, it was the unmarked tour buses driving past the park, which are violating the law. 

In 2013, the SFMTA's board unanimously voted to restrict all commercial vehicles carrying eight or more passengers from the streets surrounding Alamo Square Park. But despite signs posted around the park stating this law, Roberts found numerous vehicles in violation.

This isn't the first time someone has documented tour bus misbehavior in Alamo Square. In 2012, a Facebook page was even created for the purpose of documenting the buses' erroneous actions. Some things, it appears, don't change.
