I have about an hour commute each way...people just need to learn that if you aren't passing anyone in the right lane MOVE OVER TO THE RIGHT LANE...that drives me nuts

The people who just camp out in the left lane instead of merging back over to the right after completing a pass have no regard for other people. They are ignorant as FUCK!

Why don't they teach the merg to the right rule more and that the left lane should be used for passing only in Drivers Ed

Also, I think Chicago and Northern Illinois needs a car pool lane.

LOL, after reading that I started looking around my office and wondering why my clocks were all off, on my pohne, cumpoter etc as my watch was an hour behind, then I remembered I forgot to set my watch.

No, that's what time I leave for work. I was hoping to gage the effect of the Dan Ryan construction on my commute up 294, but the rain kinda threw a 3rd variable into the mess.

Really it was raining this morning. Huh, I didn't notice any at all. Oh I forgot, we're in San Diego right now, sunny and 70 degrees.

It just sucks when its 60 degrees out and I'm not working and it's raining.

294 has construction too. I am interested in seeing how many DR commuters we'll get. I know that for me, DR or 294 are options for me to work, but the DR has no tolls, so I know lots of people took that to avoid the cost of taking 294. We shall see!

They're saying that it won't be tomorrow because people heard it was empty today and will be taking it tomorrow. That would be so stupid.

Yeah I took 294 on the bike this morning to avoid the Ryan. I took 294 to 55 N to Lake Shore Drive, it was pretty smooth, made it to work in exactly 1 hour from when I left the house.
