We all know about it, heard about it and probably have had to go through at least one extended drive time by now with all the freeway rehab projects calling for near or full lane closures causing Excedrin kine headaches and curse filled rants while inching along past a sign dat reads 55mph speed limit.
I no can believe da nerve of some people bitchin' and moanin' about having to drive in longah than usual traffic and wondering why gotta close choke lanes.
Wassup Wit Dat!
How's about letting da crew do their jobs safely and more efficiently? How's about da "benefits" drivahs are to reap in da end? How's about showing some aloha for wat's to come? EVERYBODY has bitched about da road conditions on our freeways for decades - city roads is a whole 'noddah monster - and FINALLY something is being done instead of patchwork - so we've been told.
We're about to get "new" roads so wat's da problem? It ain't happening in a blink of an eye and it definitely ain't happening during da day time so why gotta complain? Now if wen da projects pau and there isn't a noticeable difference, then let's bitch but till then, give it a chance. I've sat through da traffic and it isn't pretty but you just have to suck it up as da construction crew is ahead of schedule even with all da off and on rain we've had.
One thing dat does make me scratch my head and curse along with da oddahs though is da City department in charge of da traffic lights. Why no can coordinate or "flip da switch" to green or hold it longah to make da flow move? Why gotta keep it on a timer? Isn't there a "room" like in da movies with uku-million tv's and da ability to change lights? Dat can't just be a movie thing right?
Especially in times like these - or major accidents - wen drivahs have to take alternate routes how come no can help things along? Das wat makes me say....
Wassup Wit Dat!
I certainly hope da "improvements" are drastically worth it - instead of just a marginal improvement - oddahwise you going get half da island up in arms with more than da one-fingah salute.
And they ain't saying our roads are numbah 1.
