- I am convinced that some people will never get this one right
- It no longer makes me angry
- I no longer lose patience
- I approach this interchange expecting the worst.
This is a HOV lane on my way home from work. The “closed” portion is open in the morning, but has no traffic on it in the afternoon.
There is a sign before this interchange that states “Maintain Two Lanes” which a few select people interpret as “There are two lanes now, there are going to continue to be two lanes, I have noticed which one I’m in now, and will act accordingly to stay in this one.”
I do not know what the rest of the drivers interpret it as. Maybe they don’t see it? Maybe they don’t understand it? All I do know is that this ends up being a free for all just about every time I go through it.
This (above) is the interchange. Red should aim for left lane, blue for right.
Here it is again. I added the lane lines to illustrate what should happen.
This is what happens.
Without lines there is anarchy. Some people need lines.
