trafficking With The Devil

It seems I spoke too soon in praising the opening of the 85-Shoreline off-ramp. This morning I spent 20 minutes on the last quarter mile of it. Apparently the world (i.e. Google) found out about it, and the traffic lights are just not synchronized for heavy flow.

That was at 9 am.

At 10, I needed to pop back home - before leaving for work I'd set up Outlook on the new PC to point to work email, and instead of it automatically sharing my files as it said it does, it put all new messages in a private folder which can only be accessed at home. So I took 85, a 3-minute commute, fixed the problem and returned on 85. This time there was no backup at all, I did 60 most of the way down the ramp, 3-4 minutes from home to work.

Another Google gripe is they have issued cute bright orange motorized scooters to people to get from buildings scattered around several blocks around Shoreline Blvd. These are not street legal, or bike lane legal, or sidewalk legal. The people on them don't care which side of the road they are on, either. It's only a matter of time before there's a splattered Googlian.
