Use my Tricks to Conquer Road Rage

I rarely get worked up while behind the wheel, here’s how and why.

Try my 6 tricks for overcoming road rage:

  1. apply these 2 types of logic,
  2. car dancing,
  3. talking on the phone,
  4. people watching,
  5. my last trick is the best one.

The last trick is my most devious one – I pretend I’m a puppet master.

Try my Trick to Better Handle Bad Traffic

Here’s some horror stories about worse traffic jams that one you may be stuck in.

The 100 km long traffic jam.

If that fails, try my trick – last paragraph.

Favourite line:

The reason for many traffic jams is an accident.  So imagine how the injured person you’re inching toward, would give anything to trade places with you and instead be the one… stuck in traffic.

Invented a new Tagline for Toronto

“Come get trapped in TO”

Because look: this is the traffic situation on any average, mid-day.

There’s really only 2 entry points to the entire downtown… the DVP and the Gardiner Expressway (which is reduced to one lane right now.)

So if there is an emergency, and the city centre has to be evacuated, how is that going to happen?

We’re already trapped on a normal day, add in some chaos, we’re done.



Had to Go Into the City Today, Twice

Since I moved July 25, bet I’ve been downtown maybe 5 times in total.

So today was a lot. Don’t miss it. This helped.

So fun to drive, the Mazda MX-5.

It’s just my size too, a rarity. Together we can fit anywhere.

Dentist. Again.

Still have never had a cavity, ever.

It took me almost 3 hours to get out of the city. That’s not sitting on the DVP either, that’s using creativity, back ways, and still.

Not happy; being trapped in a car, that’s trapped on a road surrounded by cars, is one of my least favourite feelings.

Have a post about Toronto traffic building in my mind. I think about traffic a lot actually.

Least when I returned this evening, I didn’t have to drive.

Let’s pose.

kk I’m done.

Today’s weak blog update courtesy of the traffic that sucked it all out of me.

Back to enjoying the best night of the week #ThursdayNight

Hope yours is good too TTYT



1/3 of Traffic is Caused by People Looking to Park

Read it online at Autonet.

The average time spent looking for
a curb parking spot is 8 minutes.

Favourite line:

Cities need to find the sweet-spot price of curb parking. If the price is just right, about 1 of 8 spots will be vacant, reducing search time, and therefore congestion.
