FirstNationalBastard: Yeah, it's not like there are big signs reading ALL FENDER BENDERS MOVE TO THE SHOULDER up every few miles or anything...



I've seen those in a lot of places, but I don't think we have those on the beltway. I could be wrong though. Either way, it's just common sense. I thought it would be something so blindingly obvious you wouldn't have to actually tell anyone to do it, but apparently there are lots of people with much more expensive cars than me who you'd need to shove an icepick into my brain to bring my IQ down to their level.

So frustrating.

Easy solution. Change all intersections to round-a-bouts, then the real fun can begin

"It has been too cold, not for the contractor, but for the paint to be put in place," he said.

So why did you schedule the work for Janurary then, dipshiat?

They're there (Stupid Google doesn't have a picture of them), informing drivers that all minor accidents should move to the shoulder, giving the VSP Emergency hotline number, and stuff like that. Look for 'em next time you're driving... just don't run into the ass end of someone looking for the fender bender sign.

Fano: MythDragon: When are they going to experiment with comfort women?

I like where this thread is going, came to see if it was related to Japanese Korean women in California


Japanese men used comfort women in the territories they conquered during the war, very few were Japanese women.

The sooner we bulldoze the rest of that freeway, the better.

me texan: Sadly this article is right on target.  I get on the freeway in downtown san francisco and literally there are no lanes at all.  its pretty crazy, even at 7:00am in the morning.



I can confirm this - it's even more difficult at 7:00am in the evening.

That would be ironic... I will keep my eyes open for those. Hopefully the next time I see someone pulling that garbage there will be a sign visible and I can pull in front of them, take a pic of them with the sign in frame and post it to Twitter. Friggin jerks...

TiredWings: Ninnies, just a bunch of non-driving ninnies. Is there not a real man or woman out there that can drive like a sensible person? You should be ashamed of yourselves. If people in the snow belt drove like you, nothing would ever get done in this country.....


California has the worst drivers, just add water...

They did that in my city.  The old folks had a good time figuring them out.

Or as I call them, liquid retard seeds.

If you are merely passing through the area, or you work there, you have my sympathies. If you live in SF and are one of those arrogant NIMBYs that are responsible for thru traffic on 101 dumping off onto Van Ness forcing traffic into a long slow drag through downtown, you can go suck eggs.

Think you're a great driver? Try it with a bad clutch.

Solid State Vittles: Oh, and I forgot the obligatory, people here are the worst drivers!  You don't understand!  It's not like this wherever it is that you live and drive!  So many dumb people behind the wheel!  It's like they give away licenses!  Only place like this in the country!  I'm the only one that knows what I'm doing!  You don't even know!


I guess the only way to give a "best" vote is to Funny and Smart at the same time.

Japanese men used comfort women in the territories they conquered during the war, very few were Japanese women.


Even more egregious was rounding up Korean ladies that were living in Japan and forcing them to be sex slaves to Japanese soldiers in the war effort..

/Hillary's refusal to accept Japanese using this expression recently convinced me that she is "THE ONE" in 2016.

Reminds me of the time a marathon was held in Columbia, SC that caused a similar article in The State.  The blue line used to mark the marathon path caused some morans confusion.  I recall one woman whining about not figuring out which side of the blue line she was to drive on, since the blue line would shift from one side of the road to the other.  I stayed out of Columbia for awhile as a precaution, since idiots like this thought the blue line was more important than the yellow line.  They thought it looked more official.

It never ceases to amaze me how stupid people get when construction happens. It's like all of a sudden the rules no longer apply just because there is a cosmetic change. Guess what, it hasn't changed. You weren't given permission to start making your own lanes and snarling traffic.

Stop being dick-holes and try to remember what the lanes were like the last time they were painted on the road. When there is an actual change to the layout, they'll throw up a TRAFFIC REVISION sign.

That said, the construction company should have been out there redoing the temporary lines if they knew they couldn't get back with the permanent ones for a while. Yes they wear off, yes you have to replace them, but it is a safety concern and that trumps your penny pinching.

Insane lane changes and roundabouts? Are you trying to turn San Francisco into Spain?

There probably is a paint that would dry just fine,but the People's Repubic of California has its own EPA regulations that would prohibit its use.

my dream as a middle schooler was to open a bowling alley called Comfort Lanes.  with the font on the sign the same one Comfort Inn uses.  and make the walls inside padded.
and set up the pins in ANY pattern you wanted.
