Traffic rant

Was EVERYONE in the WORLD in Watertown Square this morning?

Here's a hint: No, not EVERYONE, but every selfish bastard driver in the Boston area was, evidently.

Listen, if there's no way to get OUT of an intersection, and the light is about to turn...DO NOT ENTER THE INTERSECTION, thereby BLOCKING people going in the other direction from entering it when their light is green. Is that so fucking hard?

Sat at that light coming out of Pleasant Street for FIVE cycles of lights, because of you selfish fucks coming down Main Street, and then again, stuck at the left turn lane for a full cycle, because of you selfish bastards coming towards Galen from Mt. Auburn.

The entire clusterfuck could have cleared itself out in two light cycles, had people just displayed an eentsy bit of patience and NOT ENTERED A BLOCKED INTERSECTION AT THE YELLOW LIGHT, IN THE FIRST FUCKING PLACE, thereby giving cross traffic a chance to get in and out, and most importantly, OUT OF YOUR WAY.

Do what I do Andraste - create a blockage of your own. People will no other choice but to let you move if you're creating an obstruction. Failing that, carrying a crowbar in the car with you and flashing it every so often usually makes people see sense.

Hmmmm.. so it would appear that drivers in the Bostona area are at least as bad as D.C.ones.
*Makes check mark in the Portland vs.Boston chart*

Today, the same place? Perfectly easy, smooth, people waiting patiently at traffic lights, clean, uneventful movement through all lights... Somebody listened!

HG - Portland Oregon or Portland Maine? Portland Maine is Wonderful. If I had to leave Boston, that's #1 on my list of places to live.

Nah..'tis the Portland on the Wesht coast I'm looking at. I've narrowed the field from 6 to 2.Portland Maine was a contender though.
