I hope it happens more often to piss off everyonr with their high-and-mighty attitudes. Leave earlier for work to avoid traffic and if it didn't hurt you...why be so uptight? Calm down and go take a nap. It was less than 10 minutes and poof, done! Illegal...whatever to that noise, I'm sure every person driving in this state has broken at least ONE LAW so get off your high horse and go do something spontaneous for the one you love.

Jesse. Perhaps you're just involved as much as everyone else is. Those invloved should've been cited and dealt with by the Traffic judge. The law was broken and it was inappropriate for this to happen. Ever thought about the Fire Dept, Medical ER or Law Enforcement may needing to get though traffic that's being blocked by these idiots? What if it had been you needing to go to the hospital for an emergency etc. rest my case.
