I have a car and live in the Pac Heights neighborhood. I have a garage, but would not have any problems finding a spot on my block if I had to park on the street.

I lived in SF for 6 years and I had a car. I started out renting a garage but found that people would constantly block my access to it. grrrrrr.
Towing people became a real pain in the arse and a waste of my time.
I moved to other places, had free parking at one house (!) and then lived with street parking for 4 years.
Always made sure to rent in neighborhoods that did not have that stupid residential parking permit 2 hour limit crap. Worked out fine.
Parking became part of my job after getting off work late at night...

Western Addition, Panhandle, Upper Haight hoods.

Hahaha-- yeah, those 2 hr limit areas- I almost forgot! Also, if you live anywhere on the MUNI line there's street cleaning 4X a week, either side of the road and red zones in front of most stops! Sucked beyond belief!

Never live right on a street where there's bus stop or MUNI line!

Was in the City for around 30yrs---I also had a car. It was a must for me despite the parking issues (of course way back when, it wasn't bad at all!) Used to park no problem on even super busy streets like Haight, Clement, or Union. By the time I moved out of the City--parking was a nightmare everywhere. Seems like everyone living there now must have at least 2 cars now.

Oops, I guess I shouldn't be answering since the OP said people that live in San Francisco only. Nearly my whole life was spent there but I guess I don't matter anymore

I lived in SF's Noe Valley for 2 years w/ 2 cars and we had 2 parking spots included in our rent. We also had tons of street parking so often one of us would park on the street so the other car wouldn't be blocked in. Our spots were tandem not side by side.

I think Noe is a pretty easy part of the city for parking...especially compared to surrounding neighborhoods of Castro and Mission.
