I’m going to need someone to explain this “traffic” phenomenon to me.
How is it created? No, I’m serious. I don’t understand. If we are all going the same way, at generally the same speed, WHAT IS THE MAJOR MALFUNCTION????
It’s the 21st century. I just feel like this is a problem we could have solved by now. We cured polio like 80 years ago. Yet I still crawl on the interstate. I cannot compute.
All to say, I sat in traffic for 3 hours this evening. THREE. 1 fender bender. The rest was just a plethora of motor vehicles. Like, just lots at one time. All minding their own business, going the same way. It probably doesn’t help that this region only has one major interstate. Like, not a city planner, but if I was, my city would have lots of roads, hospitals, shopping, food & an airport every 10 miles for emergency evacuations.
At least I always pack a snack when I drive anywhere. You just never know where the “traffic” will be.
