If you were stuck somewhere in Northern Virginia, DC or Maryland yesterday, it’s because a handful of assholes got stuck and caused us to wait in traffic for hours.
I believe that we should pass a law that heavily fines people for getting stuck. If you notice the photo below, there are about 5 or 6 BMWs couldn’t go up the hill (since they’re RWD). This caused a massive traffic block, and totally shut down a road. Instead of being fined, these cars are rewarded by getting free help and free towing.
Sadly, the responsible ones who bought FWD/AWD/4×4 for these kinds of conditions are punished by the irresponsible ones.
How many hours did it take you to get home? Here’s an awesome video of me sitting in traffic (when I live only 1.8 miles away from work).
