Time for the Commute

Today I tested a scientific theory: That changing lanes in traffic really doesn’t get you that much farther ahead. (I didn’t set out to test it, I was just running late.)

It may not make much difference in a traffic jam on the highway, but on regular streets it can mean the difference between getting through a light or sitting still for 2 minutes.

 My conclusion: If I don’t piddle around so that I leave late, I won’t have to worry about it.
