There oughta be a law!
Thanks to the wonderful world of Muni I haven’t had to move my car for over 3 weeks. What utter bliss it has been! Until today that is… I’ve been sick and had to go to work today so being locked in a rolling meat tube with a ton of strangers isn’t the best thing with an immune system that’s seen better days. So I pulled out the old beastie to drive to work and after about a quarter mile I rememebred why I’m so in love with Public Transportation. There was construction all the way in so that was annoying enough but the real point of annoyance were the assholes who like to block a lane and think that turning on their hazards makes it all ok. Like they turn invisible or something. Like blocking half or a third of the road in morning rush hour is peachy keen-o if you just turn on your blinkers. And I can look past it at times if it’s mid-day but during high traffic times if you block a lane you should get a big fat ass ticket with bells on it. If you gotta stop find a driveway to pull into or pull your ass off the main street to a side street. I’ve lived in a lot of big cities and this is the only one where this is totally condoned and I just don’t get it. It’s an amazing traffic hazard to other drivers making merge bottlenecks turning your fellow drivers into bigger assholes than they generally are. Because face it, once we get behind the wheel we all get a little rush of the asshole hormone. Some more than others. So the next person to run for city office that promises to ban rush hour traffic blockages and ticket the bastards back to the bike path gets my vote!
