I'm probably not the only one who does this:
Sometimes when driving home instead of dealing with the parking lot that
is the tollway, I get off at Balmoral and take River Road to Irving
Park Rd. On average it saves me 15 minutes though usually more since
the Kennedy can sometimes be backed up.
I like to cut through the
parking lot of the Rosemont Theatre to avoid the idiots who cannot
figure out how to make a right turn from Balmoral to River Road.
Apparently the legal turn on red or the green right turn arrow confuse
them and they must grind to a halt and consult the great traffic gods
for permission to proceed. It really drives me crazy to miss a light
because the moron in front of me is afraid to drive the speed limit. It
also drives me crazy to not be able to enter the turn lane and miss my
turn arrow because the dickless guido in the sports car won't move his
penis-compensator up half a car length closer to the next vehicle, thus blocking the lane.
Apparently this venue caught on to my shortcut because the gates have been locked the last several times I've gone this way.
can anyone tell me why the center lane of the toll booth is always
closed? Furthermore, considering that the cars coming from 90 and I-290
are trying to get over to the pay lanes and cars coming from I-294 are
trying to get to the I-Pass lane, wouldn't it make sense to have I-Pass lanes on just one side of the toll booth?
|I want all lanes open dammit|

I've set the comments up to allow anonymous users -- but I'd love it if you "signed" your comments (as some of my readers have done) just so you have an identity of sorts.
