No lights, no problem

October 8, 2008

The traffic signals were out at two busy intersections on my way to work this morning — Broadway and Jefferson and Broadway and Washington — and all the drivers just went into four-way-stop mode. It was very smooth and efficient, no panic or frustration. Why can’t we react that way all the time to unforeseen difficulties?

    I tend to act that way, rather than merely REact…and I find it works pretty darn well.

    I’m also willing to bet that the time those lights were out was BEFORE 11AM…
    And I have my reason for saying that.

    (my “neighbors” NEVER get up before 11, ergo, NO traffic problems – and if they DO get up earlier, it’s only because a warrant is being served at their house…LOL)

    Who knew?
