Earlier this week, I drove to work on my usual route (SR-99 northbound). Traffic was particularly heavy that day, so I figured it was probably a petty little accident between two drivers who didn't see each other. I got antsy in my seat trying to look to see where the cause of the congestion was, and how long it would take me to pass it. I sat through the stop-and-go, but saw no accidents.
Maybe everyone decided to get a free car wash from the rain today, I murmured. But no, that wasn't it either.
Turns out it was one of those driving-under-the-limit drivers, in that new Scion, boxy-model cars, in bright neon green. He was in the middle lane, going about 25 on a 45 mph road. And as I found an opportunity to change lanes, I glimpsed over and what do you know, the dude was on his cell phone!
Now, how annoying is it to drive behind a slow driver who's congesting traffic during the morning commute, then to find out that he can't multitask properly?! And even worse, doing it in one of the lesser tasteful car designs out there! Sorry, but those are definitely grounds for driving failure.
