5 Commuting Complaints

Apologies in advance for not posting from here in such a long time. I have another blog site that has required a majority of my attention, and so its been a very long time since I posted anything from this blog site. Today’s blog post is to politely inform my subscribers and folks around the world that not much has changed in the form of US highway & interstate commuting. I don’t have the full-time luxury of working from home, nor would I want to because I enjoy the change of venue. And so as I perform my daily commutes to work, I get a little agitated like everyone else. Listen, its only because of the delays that are caused by inexperienced &/or uninformed licensed motor vehicle operators. Here’s a short list of my opinionated complaints for US highway and interstate commuting.

1. The LEFT LANE is not the carpool lane on a four lane highway. If you don’t plain on turning left for 1,000 ft – 1 mile, keep your vehicle in the RIGHT LANE and maintain the speed limit. When it comes to four lane highways, the LEFT LANE is considered the passing lane. I know it would look extremely weird for a multitude of cars spanning a mile long or more – all driving in the right lane, keeping a safe distance, and maintaining the speed limit. I don’t have the citation to justify this opinion, but I’m sure that had to be the original expectation of U.S Department of Transportation.

2. Tractor trailers, box trucks, and/or commercial vehicles need to stay out of the LEFT LANE and ONLY utilize the left lane when avoiding motor vehicles executing right-hand turns or in the case of traffic accidents.

3. Do not stop to take pictures or become an on-looker when traffic accidents occur. Keep it moving or pull off to side of the road and WALK back to provide emotional & spiritual support.

4. Be familiar with the function or certain interstate exits and lane mergers. For example, the exit just before I get to work opens up to 3 lanes and comes to a red light: 2 lanes turn left and one lane turns right. The problem is that the exit bottles up because no one has the withall to traverse around and make their way to the lane that is dedicated to the right turn! Luckily, the good citizens of the city that work in allow me to “jump line” and slip through to execute the traverse technique that I just explained. I always stick my arm out the my window and wave a big thank you along a salutary horn blow of thanks!

5. Unless there is a serious traffic accident or road construction, six to eight lane interstates have no business ever coming to a complete stop. Pertaining to the major US interstates only, I feel there needs to a left restriction enforced within the city I work in. I think this would cause traffic to flow more smoothly.

Thank you for taking out your day to read this rant and safe commuting!
