Also, how ridiculous is it for someone to be telling me, a few miles from San Jose, every 10 minutes about how long the line is to get over the Bay Bridge from Oakland to SF? It doesn't help the commuters either - they will be in that line regardless.
Treat it as breaking news. Let me know when a big rig spills lethal chemicals, or a car has caught fire, or there has been a hit-and-run. Do it as a segment of the half-hourly local news. I don't need to hear it over and over again a dozen times an hour.
And no, I was not the one who called in the phony report of a herd of emus attacking vehicles in the fast lane on 101 near Morgan Hill.
