“Life is not always perfect. Like a road, it has many bends, ups and down, but that’s its beauty.” ― Amit Ray,

This is the time of the year when not only dandelions pock mark a person’s lawn and make looking out your front window uncomfortable but also traffic direction arrows, cones and markers make one’s driving experience to and from work an utter nightmare.
I captured this photo while stopped at a nearby light on a four lane street heading north and south. A few of the orange marker cones before the light had been knocked down by inattentive drivers who did not have their minds or hearts on their driving skills.
On the left side of the photo there is a turning lane designated for right turns for traffic heading in the north to south direction.
If you were foolish enough to ignore the “no left turn”signage you would be greeted by a pair of police cars stationed on the side of the road more than eager to issue you a $250 citation.
Many times a driver has to pay extra attention to not only oncoming traffic but also the newly created traffic lanes that construction crews have established for the even more trouble-free lanes of traffic.
The construction and upgrade of the streets themselves is a minor inconvenience but the receiving of the traffic ticket leaves an indelible mark on one’s courteous good driving mind-set. — gc
