Suggestions for possible solutions.

As bad as traffic gets today, why can't they ban trucks from the freeways during the rush hours. 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the evening. It is a drastic measure, but it seems that everyone is having to take drastic measures these days for one reason or another. It just might cut down on some traffic jams, saving gas. It might cut down on some accidents caused because someone had to hurry because they were cut off by a truck. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against trucks or truck drivers, they are a needed commodity. One thing that it might help too, by doing this, is save the truckers fuel. Just think how much fuel is wasted when they are sitting in traffic during those hours idling along at 5 miles per hour, if they are lucky, for 1 or 2 or even 3 hours. Just a thought.

OK, while I'm on the subject of traffic, I might as well bring up one of my pet peves. I hate the fact that there are so many people that are just to danged lazy to use their turn signals. Maybe it's just to hard to do two things at once, like drive and put the turn signal on too. And then there is just the opposite of that. They forget to turn them off if they hadn't turned their steering wheel far enough to turn the signal off automatically. I mean, come on, you just turned it on. You already forgot?

One more thing. When you are getting on the freeway, you are supposed to enter at the same speed as the flow of traffic in the lane you are entering. And we all know that, unless it's crunch hour, the traffic on the freeway is moving more than 40 or 45 mph. You notice I didn't call it rush hour.

Also, when you get on the freeway, you do not have to slow down traffic to get over to the car pool lane. It's going to be there further down the way too. Get on the freeway, get moving with the traffic flow and gradually move over to the car pool lane. If you will notice, the first places that traffic starts backing up is at busy on ramps because the cars coming on seem to think they have to move over immediately which slows everyone else down. Once you are past this point, traffic starts moving. Also, when exiting the car pool lane, don't wait 'till the last minute to get out of the lane and have to slow traffic in order to get to your off ramp. That is until the crunch hour really starts.

If anyone else has any complaints, please feel free to comment. I like to see what others get upset about. I would like to see other suggestions.


Please feel free to comment and/or click on feedbacks so that I have an idea of how I am doing.

Which is more dangerous?

      I am in total agreement about the ones that prefer not using turn signals and barely squeezing between you and another car. I had someone do this to me just a few days ago. The feminine product beginning with the letter d immediately came to mind. He barely missed hitting me by inches, not even a foot or two, and this was only because I slammed on brakes to avoid him thus risking being rear ended by another car. He continued weaving through cars for another two miles down the road! Where are the ticket happy cops when they are needed?
