Atlanta traffic takes a turn for the ironic
If any of you live near or have visited Atlanta, you're aware of the horrible traffic from the north down 75, 85, and 400 into the city. To relieve some of the pressure, brilliant transportation authorities decided to open up the emergency lanes during rush hour....with predictable results.
A friend told me today about a wreck on the first day of the new policy, when in the mass confusion, an emergency lane ended abruptly and somebody slammed into a guard rail.
I hope nobody was hurt, but that's just plain, hilarious irony. The open emergency lanes cause a crash to which the ambulance cannot respond in the emergency lanes....heh heh. Idiots!
