“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

A quirky trait of Nashvillains
Wednesday, August 25, 2010

First of all, don't you like what they call themselves? NashVILLAINS? Kinda fun, don't you think?

After spending a great amount of time in this wonderful city, I think I finally understand the "villain" part: Honestly, most drivers in Music City are very courteous, but they do something that drives me crazy. You know how you're never supposed to block an intersection? Even if the light is green, you're supposed to stay back unless you know you can clear that intersection. Right?

Well, Nashvillains don't do that. They fill that intersection all the way with cars, blocking the cross traffic that has the green light and right of way....and you must sit there through two lights because they've done this.

Really, it's not the exception here; it's the rule. I've never seen anything like it.

Incidentally, have you noticed how many of my blogs are about peoples' driving habits? Isn't there some Obama money out there for a Driving Czar? Would someone please nominate me?

If you get that czarship, you've got to come to Bellingham, Washington next. They've got some intersections with seven or eight streets coming in and nobody at all moving for ten to fifteen minutes at a time because the idiots block the whole thing.

Oh, yeah... they call themselves "Bellinghamsters." Not sure which is worse, the driving or the nickname.
