please click on photo to see traffic up close
we have a lot of traffic here on this island. I've overheard people who live here say we have rush hour all day long. this photo was taken at approximately 3 PM, the very beginning of rush hour. I am always amazed at the seemingly endless supply of huge semi trucks that travel our roadways. I may have stated before that out of all the vehicles on the roads here, the semis seem to be the safest drivers. time and again I notice their awareness of the vehicles around them giving others the right of way whenever possible. I actually prefer to ride with them on the long island expressway because they seem to temper the speed demons a bit. the parkways don't allow semis and the cars all appear to be traveling eighty miles an hour. how is the traffic where you do most of your driving?
