Traffic is comparable to life, constant surprises at every turn and at times something or someone stops you in your tracks.
The trick is to travel safely from point “A” to “B” without mishap.
99% of the time we are able to do so without much difficulty. However, every now and then you will bottom out on a rut.
Consider your family and friends. Believe it or not, they are really the road workers constantly patching any holes which may appear. Unfortunately, the odd one is missed due to their own lives getting in the way or their own holes they are mending.
Without these family & friends, traffic would cease to be.
