Daily Drive Report: Culebra + Rain = Wreck(s)...

It isn't uncommon to see a car accident along Culebra Road. Usually, someone is Zigging when he should have been Zagging, or there is some idiot on a cell phone trying to change CD's not paying attention to the fact that the light has turned red or that their car is drifting into my lane.

Just last night on my way home from the airport at nearly midnight, I have the entire road along Loop 410 almost to myself, but some lady in a white Cadillac was so engrossed in her cell phone conversation that she had no idea that she had drifted into my lane causing me to quickly jerk into the empty lane next to me. What the hell? She probably was not aware that she had changed three lanes between San Pedro and Vance-Jackson.It gets even worse if you add lots of traffic and a little but of rain onto the roads. Just this afternoon on my way home from work, I happened upon this accident on Culebra, and naturally, traffic was really backed up behind it and somewhat in my direction only for the rubberneckers and people like me with camera's always ready to take a picture of some other guy's misfortune. I trust there were no injuries.And then, not even to the next stop light, another crash, no doubt caused by someone not having situational awareness.

The more I hear about this public transportation scheme where people simply sit in a bus or a train and not have to do the hard work of paying attention while they drive, the more I like it.

As long as I don't have to sit in the bus or train with them.

Saturday morning (01/19) and I mean morning (aka 6am), I was heading up IH-35 north from San Antonio to New Braunfels, and what do I see? I large white full sized pickup truck that tried to skateboard sideways down the concrete barrier between the two directions. Location was about the 181mm just before the rest areas south of New Braunfels. Traffic was jammed on NB direction while the tow truck(s) tried to pull the truck off the balancing beam act, without pulling down the concrete medium at the same time. Sorry, didn't try to take a photo of it, but you can probably picture it in your mind.
