Slow Stretch of Commuting

leave a comment »

Usually my outbound commute is easier than my inbound one, since I catch less of the rush hour. This afternoon, I’m out a little later than usual, so I’m not terribly surprised that traffic is a bit heavier than what I’m used to.

But I added maybe 10-15 minutes (maybe 25%-50% of usual commuting duration) for some stop-and-go that began maybe a mile north of the 610 loop, southbound down the Gulf Freeway. If I’d kept this video going just 2-3 seconds longer, I might have caught the flashing lights in the left lane at the farthest end of the scene at the very end of this clip. By the time I actually reached that point 5 minutes later, the accident had been cleared to the side, and traffic was starting to clear.
