Driving automobiles

Today I was not a JLEDI

So here I was on southbound I-405 a few miles north of LAX,
approaching the interchange with CA-90 (aka Marina Freeeway, fka
Richard M. Nixon Freeway).

The southbound lanes are configured as:
#1 – #3 – Southbound I-405
#4 – Southbound I-405 or CA-90 Exit
#5 – CA-90 Exit Only

Some foolish MFFY gets into the #5 lane less than 1/4 mile before the
split, expecting a chance to pass a few cars and then slip back into
the #4 lane and continue southbound.  But I’m in the #4  lane.  He
frantically looks for an opening, but I’m directly to his left.
Suddenly he finds himself on the wrong side of the divider,
inescapably heading onto CA-90.

    Which is exactly what should happen to these queue jumping arseholes.
    Instead enablers let them in causing monumental backups.

    Disregarding the "terrorist" angle, it’s still a good Darwin find.  In
    a bus vs. SUV wrestling match, the bus will always win.

    Only a sick fuck like you would call this good news.



    "I’m all for making the SUV owners park in the rear of the lot.   It
    should be handled like handicapped parking.  A special sticker on the
    plate designating this vehicle as a highway tank that must be parked in
    the tank area."

    "Representatives from the manufacturer today will begin inspecting the
    engine to determine the extent of damages to the multimillion-dollar
    piece of machinery, Johnson said."

    Stalling, while they check scrap metal prices, probably.
