Advice for Motorists

Listen, people, it is really very simple. When there is thick fog on the roads, turn on your bloody headlights. Especially if you're driving one of those expensive silver European luxury vehicles so popular in this town and which become, oh, invisible in fog.

Another motoring tip if you visit my fair city: if you are coming into town from the north/east by way of 450, and have turned down King George Street, those two traffic lights you will see facing you at the intersection with College Avenue mean you should form TWO lanes -- one to go straight ahead toward the Naval Academy, and one to turn right onto College Avenue. Do NOT for the love of God be an idiot and form a single lane, because you will prevent people who want to turn right from making their right-on-red.

Great: now I'm going to have all those sounds of my adolescence stuck in my head for the rest of the day:
