Red cones

There is not a single fucking street where construction isn't being done. It's just become the expectation that you can double your commute time because of the "work" being done.

I think they're blocking off lanes with those red cones only because they have nowhere else to put them.

The bit that really pisses me off is when there are bloody cones all over the motorway and traffic is slowing to a crawl because we've only got one lane left, and yet there's no machinery and nary a workperson in sight. This will sometimes go on for days. So why are the cones up already??

I know pastamasta, totally! Even worse is when traffic is slowing down because of the stupid curiosity factor. I mean, you're not able to help the folks in the accident, so just move the fuck along, it's not a circus to watch. I guess I'm giving the department of transportation a LITTLE credit by acknowleding that the cones must be up for some reason, but I really get angry when the only reason traffic isn't moving is because people are too nosy.
