Morning Drive Report: The Grass is Always Greener...

Have you ever noticed people driving to work in the morning who are so worried about being in the good lane that they change from lane to lane and never seem to make any real progress? Yea, well then quit following me!

I admit I am always looking to get in a stream of traffic that is flowing smoothly, and further admit that I hate getting behind some idiot on a cell phone who is oblivious to the fact that they are going 10 mph under the speed limit.

But when it comes to bumper to bumper, parking lot like traffic, you aren't going anywhere until the lights change.

So this morning as I made the drive down Culebra, I came across this scene unfolding before my very eyes. It seems that dude in the SUV was just sure that the left lane would provide a better route for his commute. Meanwhile, dude in the little Honda was convinced that he could go faster if he could just get into the right lane.

And, they both made the move at once. And then they stayed perfectly side by side for another mile before one turned off.

I got a giggle from that one.

I always know which is the best lane to be in. It's so easy to tell, that it's pathetic. Want to know the easy way to tell? Simply don't get in the same lane that I'm in. Whether it's on Loop 410 or the check-out lane at the store, I always manage to find the slowest lane to get in, so the other lanes MUST be faster, right?

Dave, sounds like you and I always chose the same lane, the slowest one.
