Once we got onto Interstate 5 this morning it took almost an hour to go eight miles. As soon as we slowed down to a stop I checked SigAlert and saw that there was an accident only a few miles away so we continued to bear it out. All the ramps were jammed with cars trying to get off the freeway, which caused everyone to slow down even more when those cars got back on the freeway at the next ramp. Several near-miss accidents almost occurred as most drivers were now on their cell phones. I wasn’t driving so I rolled the window down and took pictures of anything interesting and a few angry people. Then, I looked up.
