don't act like you wouldn't do the same thing.
Who's the idiot who posted comment 1?
This does happen alot, and I understand sometimes when people do it. When you're in the city and there's just a constant flow of traffic for hours, sometimes you have no choice. You have to make your moves when you possibly can. It's all in WHEN you do it as opposed to WHY. We know WHY it happens. Someone is sitting on a side street waiting FOREVER to get into the main road. Just make sure you do it when there's sufficient time. Don't get so impatient that you kill somebody, wait until the road is clear enough so that the oncoming car in the lane you are to block has sufficient time to come to a stop. Most people will understand your situation. Every time this has happened to me (Where I've had to stop for someone), my only thought is 'I hear ya, man!').
Driving in the city... I live outside of Chicago. I own a Lincoln. Hence, I would never drive actually IN Chicago... it's just nuts. Bad design.
Were it up to me, I would redirect inner city traffic and make streets all one way. Two way traffic would not exist in the inner city of Chicago... and why? Am I nuts? No. Have you driven there lately? I rest my case.
Mayor Daley better hope I never get on the city council, because there would be MAJORRRR change on inner city traffic. I would take it from situation "SUICIDAL" to situation "TOLERABLE."...
So for this blog, I can only say I feel sorry for the guy in traffic, and the guy he's blocking as well. It's just fucked. Sorry.
Mathew, your friendly neighborhood Democrat.
I HATE when you're on the highway and traffic slows to a snarl...you wait it out and when you get through the pileup...you discover that it was an accident...ON THE OTHER FUCKING SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY and the slowdown was caused by IDIOTS slowing down to LOOK AT THE DAMN WRECK like they've never seen one and they don't actually have TO BE AT WORK ON TIME!
