Traffic!!

It occurred to me to wonder, on the way to work today, why there should be so many mobile cranes, slow moving diggers etc. on my route at 6.30 in the morning. Every day, at least three of them hold up the traffic on my route.
Shouldn't be allowed on the road during rush hour! Should only be allowed to move around during the hours of darkness.
And have you ever noticed the car that hurtles up behind you and tries to do the rest of the journey in the boot of your car? Nine times out of ten, it's a BMW! The tenth time, it's a Vauxhall Vectra. So they should be off the road too!
Then, there's 'White Van Man'. As soon as he sees that your car is being driven by the female of the species, he just HAS to overtake. If you were doing 100 mph, he'd pip you at the post! Should be banned!
And what about those who trundle along, oblivious to all around them, at half the speed of everyone else? You feel you just have to check that they're not pushing it with their feet and giving the engine a rest. Can't they be restricted to driving between 2 and 3.30 in the afternoon and on side roads only?
So that leaves you and me - the only perfect drivers in the world! If all these others were off the road, I'd get to work in the morning in half the time and feel a lot less frazzled!! :-)

Your idea is certainly the way forward in traffic management :o) I remeber it well. I used to commute between Manchester, Preston and Blackpool for years, I see nothing has changed! Can I add to your list please? For those of us in the sticks, combine harvesters should be relegated to the hours of darkness too!!

Have a restful weekend.

web site traffic always allows me to drive lots of traffic to my web sites. Having tested and tried literally hundreds of traffic generation methods, I have not found anything that delivers more consistent, quality people to my web sites who buy. I rake in an average of $345. a day simply by plugging five of my favorite affiliate programs into this excellent traffic source and then simply making sure my traffic never expires. Let's face it, everyone is interested in web site traffic" and I know if the blog readers here just try this one, they will be very pleased. Enjoyed your post Blogger.

Blogger I've tried an awful lot of ways to drive consistent, quality traffic to my web sites and hands down in terms of both sales and quick turnaround, If you are even remotely interested in guaranteed traffic you need this guaranteed traffic tool. Now because of the results is brings me, I never let mine expire. I grab the traffic and then simply list five of my favorite affiliate programs to drive traffic to and presto! Right now I'm averaging about $345. a day as a result of this. And the really amazing thing is it only took me I'd say about three minutes to set up and no more than 30 seconds to renew my traffic when I get an email telling me it is about to expire. Enjoyed your "Traffic!!" post. Oh, and by the way Blogger, guaranteed traffic is all about sharing things that work so I would appreciate it if you could post things here that you've found to really deliver.
