On the way home from class last night, we saw a highway patrolman enter the freeway with his lights on. He started weaving across the lanes to slow us down. For the most part, this worked ok. The other cars slowed down with us and it was ok.
We followed the car for several miles and finally the officer brought us to a complete stop. That’s when things got mildly interesting. A car about 3 cars behind me started honking. Why? Where do you think you’re going to go? Through me and the police car? Then, the car in front of me squeezes in between the two lanes to pass. Again, where do you think you’re going?
It looks like they stopped us so that they could set up the construction zone ahead.
This morning, on my commute, I almost hit a 5 gallon bucket rolling around the freeway. Where was my traffic break today?
