Newsflash: car drivers are angry, feel impotent

Vancouver Sun: Traffic tied up getting on, off Burrard Bridge
Drivers stuck on Pacific were furious. "They should fire the mayor," said one of them, Maurice Harting. "How much pollution is this generating with all these cars idling here?"

Okay then, a suggestion: turn off your engine?

"I'm not going down this street ever again."

Thank you.

Traffic turning off the bridge onto Pacific was also backed up during the evening rush hour.

This is no different from any other day. The eastern-most lane of the bridge is often backed up to the middle of the bridge (or beyond) with cars merging onto Pacific. It's obvious to even the most casual of observers that the traffic lights at Hornby and Pacific determine how many cars are backed up onto the bridge.

In the morning, one motorist screamed profanities at cyclists congregated at the corner of Cornwall and Burrard.

Again, this is no different from any other day.

Another yelled, "this is a bad idea,"

This driver then added "instead, we should build a new twelve lane cars-only bridge over False Creek." ?
