Roads around here parallel each other, but all are so congested that no way is really any “better” than the rest. Someone crashes on a “side road” and everything backs up on the other rungs and leaders of the web, leaving me wishing some sky spider could swing down and drag the detritus away in a more timely fashion.
Instead, we have almost the opposite: the fines keep getting raised on motorists who won’t get out of the way of emergency equipment. It puzzles me that any fines would be needed at all, but I remember being taught that even the US mail trucks had priority. Is that a generational or a regional thing?
