I woke up early this morning. There were lots of sirens and fast moving, large vehicles outside. I heard a couple helicopters circling overheard. Had there been any gunfire, I would have suspected an invasion. However, living as close to Lawrence Expressway as I do, I knew it was a traffic accident of some sort.

After turning on the radio to hear the traffic report, I discovered that it was a 5-car accident at the intersection of Homestead and Lawrence Expressway. That's about 10 seconds from my apartment by car. Needless to say, I was in no rush to get to work.

glad to hear that i wasn't the only one with traffic trouble this morning. my question is why do people who are running along at a 55 MPH clip as traffic is breaking up slow down to 10 MPH to take a look at the burned out remains of a semi trailer? it's really boring!

because californians have no idea how to drive. they come to a standstill if rains. they keep going fast if it's fog. no one uses turn signals. since i've been in this state, i no longer am surprised to see multi-car accidents, fipped cars, blah blah blah. it gets old here.
