I did my football watching at my good friend Mike’s place today over in Falls Church, braving Sunday traffic for some incredible Italian Store sub sandwiches (any football watcher’s dream) and some Yuengling beer and some classic American Sunday activities. After the Steelers were done pasting the hapless Titans, I figured I would watch the ensuing shellacking of the 49ers from the comfort of my own couch, so I hopped in the car and headed back from Falls Church on Route 7. Then, as I headed Eastbound, approaching Patrick Henry Drive, I saw it happen. Metrobus Number 2013 (a 4B bus) swerved out of the turn lane it was in at 4:35pm, around the two cars in the turn lane ahead of it and parked itself blocking the turn lane and left eastbound lane of Route 7 in heavy Sunday traffic. I guess the driver decided that the two cars ahead of it just weren’t important enough to wait for. While I applaud dedication to schedule, I don’t think it’s more important than, you know, traffic laws.
Thanks WMATA for putting crazies in the driver’s seat of a multiple ton bus.
