Alex Carlson reports drivers stuck on Storrow Drive inbound can think the yutz who at least had the good graces not to storrow himself just past Cambridge Street but who is now trying to back his Ryder truck.
A fed-up citizen complains:
Every day at rush hour, the good drivers wait in the right lane to go onto Storrow. The bad drivers go in the middle lane right until the bridge then try and merge into the right lane. This causes so must traffic, causing the traffic from one end of the museum to the other to take 25 minutes. Please spend some time thinking how to resolve. Signage is clear, people are just being greedy drivers. Perhaps cones dividing the right lane from the center so they can not merge so late? Sincerely, a good driver who just wants to get home without becoming a bad driver.

Thanks. Thanks a lot.
Only a few hours after the Silber footbridge decapitated a truck, a slightly more alert truck driver narrowly managed to avoid a similar fate - and luckily for him, fellow commuters, such as Scrams, were in no mood to get out of their cars and tell him what they thought of having their rush hour extended.
