We had our first snowfall here in upstate NY, a whole 1-2 inches at best. Yet that was enough to send every driver into student driver mode. A drive that should have taken me 10 minutes, 15 minutes tops, took 50! FIFTY!!! 5-0!!! So frustrating but it got me back here so it wasn’t a complete waste.
It wasn’t just the snow that slowed everyone down. I realized, as I was sitting on the same stretch of road for a majority of my FIFTY minute drive, that it’s the road that’s the problem. Sure they put in a round-about but that’s doesn’t address the real issue. Retail stores and other businesses are popping up down the strip but they haven’t made any adjustments to handle the amount of traffic that it’s generating. It’s great for the economy and all. Come to think of it, I bet the oil companies are somehow behind all this. I digress. The road has always been two lanes, it widens near the entrance to the highway but a majority of the road it two lanes. We need four lanes people!
I don’t know how to fix this problem …I’m just throwing out the solution.
