The Dreaded Curve

Tuesday, 22 Feb 2005 | Daily, Rants

It rained all weekend and it appears it will continue for the next day or two. I really enjoy the rain, but I don't like driving in it. It slows down my commute and it's just plainly more dangerous when the road is wet and visibility is impaired.

Dreaded Curve

The commute to work today wasn't too bad, but I was reminded as I am almost everyday of The Dreaded Curve. There is a curve on the 215 Freeway on the way to work for me and Toni that makes us crazy. It's a pretty big angle, but it curves gently. For some unknown reason, when people get to it, they freak out and feel they have to slow down to an unneccesary degree to negotiate it. This almost always, except for when I'm on my way to church at 7:00 am on Sundays, causes the traffic to slow to a crawl or even to a complete stop. There is just no good reason for this! Please refer to the map provided to illustrate the curve. I just had to vent about this to calm my nerves. LOL
