Many large college campuses consist of busy main avenues and highways. While convenient to have actual roadways that run through campus to make it easier to get from Point A to Point B, it can also lead to many frustrations. Here are some thoughts many of us have probably had while driving through or around campus:
1. WHY CAN’T PEOPLE LOOK BOTH WAYS BEFORE CROSSING?
2. There should really be separate bike highways like there are in the Netherlands.
I feel bad for whoever needs the ambulance with flashing lights and sirens blaring because I don’t know how the hell they’re going to get through this traffic-packed intersection.
3. I can’t pay your tuition if you’re unsuccessful in crossing the notoriously busy street because I’m a student in debt just like you.
4. THAT’S. NOT. EVEN. A. CROSSWALK.
5. I should have taken another way...
6. ...or taken the bus. Yeah, that might’ve been better.
7. You know, I am probably part of the traffic problem because I'm taking my car instead of the bus
8. But will this merge actually happen though?
9. SHIT, I NEEDED THAT LANE AND I'M IN THE TURN ONLY LANE.
10. #%$@@$$ $%&^^##$%!
11. *Waves hands in air in frustration towards ignorant pedestrians as they cross in front of your car while staring at their phone*
12. This university existed longer than the invention of automobiles.
There should probably be a better traffic pattern on this campus.
13. Welp, I'm just going to park in this lot that I obviously don’t have a parking pass for and hope I don’t get a ticket from campus police.
14. Why are almost all of these streets "one-way"?
15. This would be a lot easier if I was a superhero with a supercar that could fly.
16. My car would look ~super fly~ if it were blue and had wings.
17. Maybe campus police would think it’s a large bird and not ticket me...
18. Why is the crossing signal on at the same time as the turning arrow for vehicles turning toward said crosswalk?
Who really has the right of way?
