I don't know how people deal with grid lock like that on a daily basis. At least you're allowed to filter through it there.


This shall pass, be still and know.

this was exceptional in that i'm working an hour earlier (sometimes that make a lot of difference) and the stop light being out (4 way flash).

still, i'm putting in some more years in a job with an actual pension and building some more equity in the house before i'm outta here!

while i've never me any of you in person, i aspire to my image of y'all, ha ha!

I don't miss that kind of traffic. If the cops catch you passing on the right expect points on your license and a hefty ticket. Also don't discount some anti biker opening a door. Ride safely.

the near total lack of traffic enforcement here is indeed a double edged sword...

a decade or so ago, the city had among the most generous police pension programs, it was also going broke.

now we have among the worst police pension programs with predictable results...

at least the homeless are fed, ha ha!

Yes it's sad what's happening to CA. I just want to see riders here enjoy their bikes and avoid injuries and other problems. Use caution and good judgement when riding is the take away.

As a Tempe Police Officer years ago I rolled up on scenes of death and carnage involving motorcyclists that stick with me to the present.

Those I stopped and ticketed before they took that last ride to oblivion, no doubt hated me for it then.

But hopefully now that they're old and long in the tooth, as I am, they look back and think, 'Thank you Mr. Policeman for that long ago wake up call'.

Yeah, I know, probably not, but you never know..
