Gawd love him, but Obama's trip through the west side of Entitlement has totally fucked traffic. I've been inching from Allenford towards UCLA in first gear for nearly half an hour and I'm still not even to Barrington yet.
They're on the phone. They pull their bigass Ford Stompers out in front of you, even though they have a stop sign and you don't, and they stop. And when you honk at them and gesture in righteous indignation they look at you with cow eyes as if to say, "What IS your problem?"
The line of cars to get onto the freeway here is backed up about a mile. These people who cruise up to the front of the line and then hold up the traffic in the through lane so they can jump to the head of the line make my temples throb with barely contained road rage.
This guy turned left on red into an intersection filled with cars and made two lanes where there is only one. It doesn't sound as bad as it was, given that there was also a pedestrian in the mix somewhere. It was like downtown Rome in the 80s.
