Public Service Announcement | Traffic!

I've made it so that anyone can post here, not just registered members. Theres still the word verification, though.

Traffic has been such a pain these past 2 days. Yesterday was the rain: took me an hour to get somewhere it normally takes 15 minutes. Today was Baba Qaboos moving from one place to another. I ain't complainin': a brutha's gotta get places, and plus it rarely happens. What bugs me is the horrible behaviour of other drivers. People using hard shoulders, bad driving, staring when theres an accident, etc. It all slows down the road, and stresses us all out. Yesterday there was this absolutely mad guy driving this 18 wheeler on the highway. This retard was acting like he was driving a Porsche: powering down the highway, overtaking from the right, zipping between lanes: he almost freakin killed me. People who drive on the hard shoulder: We're ALL in a hurry dammit. We ALL need to get places. Just be patient. Driving on the hardshoulder slows everyone down cause it creates bottlenecks. Plus, it blocks the roads when an ambulance or a police car is trying to get thru: like what happened yesterday. Jeez, seriously, having bad drivers around takes all the fun out of driving...

    I don't understand why His Majesty does not travel with a helicopter ? I mean , it is not convenient for people that the roads are blocked!

    @ap: I know what you mean, blocking off the shoulder lane :D but then people start honking and stuff, and I just figure its not worth the stress, personally.

    @NF: tell me about it, and it sucks when people start staring at you and everything. Seriously! :s

    @Lym: I'm not sure either..I'm sure theres reasons though. Maybe someone else can answer better! But I think with helicopters u need landing pads and stuff, and i dunno if theyre everywhere

    I get pretty angry when driving as well...I know I shouldnt, it achieves nothing except raising ur blood pressure, but I cant help it.
