Which Damn Lane Am I In?

Thankfully, God has bestowed me with a job at I-635 and the Dallas North Tollway, which means in the wee hours of the morning I'm heading west on 635 and away from the sun as I negotiate those who find it necessary to drive 50 in the left lanes. (That's a whole nother issue). 

Well, say your wife calls as you're almost at work on say a Thursday and you have to get back toward here as she's trying to get kids to school in Mesquite ISD and you're concerned about them getting there on time and her car not overheating. 

So you turn around at the Forest Exit and head back east, into the sun and along the car dealership area on 635.  Well, they did all that wonderful construction recently and did it in sections.  So they'd finish a part, slap perma paint down as they built the next section, finish it, then sandblast the old paint off and add new paint.  Oh, and so water doesn't stand and you hydroplane on the new stretch of roadway, they also put deep grooves into the concrete. 

So what does that do for you? 

I don't know how many wrecks have happened because of this.  Maybe none.  Maybe some.  Maybe many.  But to any lawyers needing heartfelt testimonials, I'm available (for a reasonable fee) to talk about how hard it was for me to see while driving through there, in support of your client's claim that if one attempts to follow the lines put down/taken up by the highway department and basically crashed into 20 cars, it really wasn't your client's fault. 

Here, see for yourself:

Which Damn Lane?

    I did a 3 day in DFW a few years ago and I could not handle it the stupid glare off the roads.
