Try as you might to create a foolproof system, your greatest success will be in creating a more foolish and/or efficient fool.

That wouldn't be on Fark. You'd have to post it to Tindr.

Good thing it was not in Seattle. The bomb squad would have been deployed.

At times, the backups stretched for 10 miles, causing some motorists to wait in traffic for more than five hours.


Isn't that just regular Atlanta traffic?

what, no fireworks truck in the pileup?

On a slightly more positive note, a large portion of Fulton county smelled like campfires and sandalwood for much of the day.

Authorities believe the wreck was caused by a third tractor-trailer, whose driver jumped out of his cab when he lost control on an access road, leaving his rig to roll onto I-285 and into the other vehicles.

The backup stretched for 10 miles? So, the bonfire improved traffic on 285?

I drove that section of 285 a few weeks ago.  There were 2 separate wrecked cars on the side of the road just sitting there waiting for someone to clobber them.
