Your Traffic and Transit Nightmares

I recently asked my readers in my new Taken for a Ride forum to share their worst commuting nightmares. Now I want video proof. Watch my call to action below and submit footage of your own personal commuting hell. Remember: safety first, don't shoot and drive!

I'm not sure I'm competent enough with video-editing software to bleep out all the profanities that would appear in a video I might shoot while in traffic. :-)

From Dr. Gridlock: Don't drive angry, 1995hoo. (Save it for here, where you can vent safely.)

You know, when we decided to do this video thing, I was really worried that people would try to drive and use a video cam at the same time.

I did get an angry letter about a week ago just because we're asking people to tell us about traffic problems. The letter writer wanted to know if I was asking people to text while they were driving.

Of course not. I won't take a cell phone call when I'm driving, not even with a hands-free device, so I'm not about to ask anybody to drive when they're distracted in any way.

Wonderful video! No captions! Completely inaccessible to some of your readers.
