So they're pulling people over again on Mockingbird. Six lane road and it is 35 MHP. And no, they didn't get me. Yeah, it's all about safety. This is pretty much par for the course around here. Ridiculously low speed limits that do nothing but foul traffic and provide any easy quota-day for the uniformed tax collectors traffic cops. Hey, if y'all want to catch some real criminals just stay at city hall. I'm sure there's a couple the FBI missed.

Move up to the DC Metro and you'll wish you had it that good.

Highland park is the worst. The rich folks basically want to discourage as much traffic as possible and the cops oblige.

I billed 9 hours and left at 7:00. But having lived in C-ville I'd rather make my commute than yours, and I'd rather deal with Texas traffic cops that VA ones. I'd call VA traffic cops fascist, but that would be an insult to fascists.

Relax, stop by Campisi's and get a meatball sammich (add provolone, black olives, and lightly sauteed peppers and onions FTW).

I will never visit my brother again in dallas because of the traffic. Hell i will never go there again.

I will only fly to other airports and drive a couple extra hours, which is a longer trip, it takes less time.

over a 5 day trip, you lose one whole day to traffic.

Fuck the big D

Lol. VA cops are really that bad, though. I think only New Jersey can rival them.

Worst traffic I've ever seen was in Dallas. L.A.ain't got nothin' on Dallas.

Particularly aggravating was the junction for southbound Highway 12 to westbound Interstate 30. Why the hell did they build the exit like that?

I'm convinced we do it just to keep Yankees out. If you miss enough left-exits in a row you wind up in Iowa where you belong.
