Well, an '88 Dodge Aries would put anyone off. K-Cars, uh, don't rule.

But yeah, Seattleites who complain about traffic are nuts. They're on the wrong street, is all. Vegas is indeed a freakshow of gridlocked eight-lane streets, and there are others like it throughout the Southwest.

If the guest sloggers were given a 6 post maximum, perhaps they're trying to get as much out of them as possible.

I liked this post a lot - I grew up with the same love of the open road, and my biggest regret about not having a car is not being able to just pick up and drive to nonwhere in particular in the middle of the night. Not very environmentally conscious, I know, but there ya go.

I get really frustrated by Metro sometimes, and think there are lots of ways public transportation here could be improved, but I have had no problem living without a car in Seattle for the last 16+ years.

The next one, already in queue, will have more brevity.

@2: I was thinking similar things (while acknowledging this is a contradiction to my earlier complaint about there not being enough posting).

Could some things be put under jumps, to streamline scrolling while trying to get to older posts?

Gomez, I suggest speeding in any vehicle on I-5 or 99/509 on any weekend morning before 10AM. They are delightfully open roads during daylight, while the cops unfold the morning paper at home. Traffic sucks here, but it's mainly Rush Hour Traffic.

ZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz ... this seems more appropriate for The Bellingham Herald's blog.

I live in LA and I HATE having to drive everywhere.

But, damn. There is nothing like driving on an LA freeway at 3:00 am. Nothing like it.

That is the city at its finest.
