what do you do stuck in traffic?
This guy switches off the engine, opens side window, and slept

I was stuck for about 45 minutes in a traffic this morning, and I could see everybody getting frustrated, except this man - switches off his engine, opened his car windows and went right into 45 minutes long sleep. He knows that somebody will wake him up for sure when they start moving.

But, he made me wonder what else one can do when stuck in traffic.

Me? I fume, so I admire this guy.

I used to shave, or eat or drink, but that is now frowned upon, so I reverted to fuming. ;)

I usually get out and walk around a bit, stretch my legs. This always seems to attract a lot of suspicious looks. I always have a good book to read at work (I only read at work!).

I'm a deep sleeper, so I save the power naps for lay-by's and services.

I consider waiting two cycles for a light "stuck" in traffic.

I have to go through 18 sets of lights just to get almost 5 miles to my nearest motorway. That's an average of 1 every 416 metres.

Hmm, well I hit 3 stop signs leaving town, 1 more turning onto the major highway south...possibly a light on the perimeter around the city (stupid spot for a light, but it's a short wait when I hit it red) Then when I finally have to cut into the city, I'm going in the opposite direction of most of the traffic. So my commute is 55km, and almost always 40-45 minutes. Though, once winter hits, and people don't spend the money on tires that can get traction when the light turns green, it'll slow down by about 5...since a couple fewer cars will get through each light cycle.

I bicycle to work, so I get to blow by everyone stuck in traffic. As much as possible, I like to wave to everyone, just to rub it in. :)

I try to always keep at least a couple of books in my car.

Typically I'll clean and oil my gun - then make sure it's fully loaded.

So are you the person in my neighborhood with the bumper sticker that says "Honk If You've Never Seen An Uzi Fired From A Car Window."
