    Then I'd be a part of the problem as well. Just stay in line and be patient, I leave for work early enough so that I have no need to cut infront of others or break the law.

    There was a wreck here last week during my commute to work. That exit is horrible, the far left exit lane needs to be a fully accessible thoroughfare. What a hot mess this is every day. Fix it ! Mollers

    What's stopping you from using it? It's just paint.

    When its available, watch the streaming traffic cam. That says it all, too many wait to get over. Ugh !
