Traffic In A Small Town
--by Roxie, posted Jul 30, 2007
Along with the small town comes lack of traffic signals. I live off the southern most road in town and you would think that it would be easy to get onto the highway. Wrong! By the time the morning commute traffic gets to my road, it is completely and utterly bumper to bumper. I can hear you laughing ... small town bumper to bumper traffic can't really be that bad! Well, on more than one occasion I have sat through over 100 cars going past before I could pull out. Forget trying to cross traffic to go North! I can't even tell you how many accidents have occurred from that. You would think that the town would put in a traffic light, but they say it is to expensive.
At any rate, sitting there can be very frustrating at the least. However, on those rare occasions, you will have a sweet soul who must have been caught in that situation before, slow down and flash their lights for you to pull out. Such was my luck this week! In fact twice this week!! Whoohoo!!
So of course, whenever I have the opportunity, I pay it forward!!!
Slowing down a tad to let someone else get to work doesn't make you late and gives you a good feeling the rest of the day!
