    Do we still drive on the left or are we phasing in a transition to driving on the right this week?

    • Lone Wolf says:

      I think everyone just wants to drive down the middle. Especially on corners when every opposing vehicle is more than half over the line ….

  2. Police says:

    I was in this backup for over an hour going west. Took over forty minutes to get from five star island to Barnes corner….why on earth did the police allow all the traffic going east by but yet as you can clearly see the east Lane was blocked….you have all the five o’clock traffic going west and about 6 officers standing on the side of the road and no one directing traffic….cmon man even if you alternated and let some cars go from each side, but nope buses, trucks and everything going east just slipped on by. Gotta come better than that. Hope the injured lady alright, just bothered by the management of the situation.

      I was less then impressed myself for the same reason. I deal with traffic, and I refuse to let it sort itself

    • Tanus says:

      Take it easy! I sat in traffic going east for almost an hour. So, travellers going both ways were subjected to delays.

    It never ceases to amaze me what happens on our roads everyday when everyone obeying the speed limit?

    • Smarter441 says:

      Do you? Whenever there is an accident i see more comments like this than I see cars/bikes going 35…..

    One moment of somebody’s impatience causes hundreds, perhaps thousands, of hours of delay & wasted time for others.

    Straight road…

    It’s the snails that cause the impatience. Raise the limit to 50 and ticket those driving too SLOW ..
