If everyone takes the local "shortcut", and jams it with so much traffic that it takes 10 minutes longer to get to your destination, it's not really a shortcut. Amirite? Do you have this type of shortcut in your town? (+8)

Many people amaze me. So easily mind conditioned.

Actually, no, because we have clever people doing some krap you wouldn't even think was possible. But then again, I live in a civilized country, where cyclists and walkers have their own pathways to carry on.

There have been a few around here over the years and now they are a total mess. I'm glad I don't have to commute any more.

Yes, because of bridge construction this past summer. But it's fixed now, and everything is back to normal.

We have some of those. They dont cause that kind of traffic out here, though.
Our roads are hugely affected by harsh weather. When a road gets attention, large trucks will use the repaired road until it falls apart again, it is a vicious circle.

I have to get to the next town to get to "it," but once I'm on it......a much shorter ride to the beach. ;)

I agree, WAZE has really mucked up the short cuts for local traffic.
