Atlanta Traffic Sucks!!!
Surviving the Roads of The Chocolate City

Seriously...WTF is up with the corner of Windward Parkway and Westside/Deerfield Parkway? AT LEAST twice a week I end up behind some dimbulb who is absolutely incapable of making a left onto Westside from Windward. These people always stop behind the line, never advance into the intersection, never go on a yellow, and frequently won't go on a green even when the road is entirely clear! It's as though there's some kind of stupid ray from space fixed on that exact spot. Alternately, is there a mental home nearby? I keep thinking that these people must be my coworkers, but they never pull into my office complex - I wonder if there's a home for tards with drivers licenses around the corner.

Very, very frustrating.

I work right up there and am eternally grateful that I get to telecommute. The city of Alpharetta has allowed limitless construction through that entire area without doing anything to improve their roads.

When I started that job in the summer of 2002, 3/4 of the stores/restaurants on that side of 400 did not exist, and traffic still sucked.

Nope, just the cameras. People do stupid stuff in the presence of those things. I see it at Old Milton/Haynes Bridge too.

Perhaps so. It just seems worse there than all the other intersections with cameras, though.

but there are about 6 different retirement villages.

Well, they need to start riding the old people bus, then!
