"Can you feel the tension?"
Ugh. There's probably a dozen different ways to spell that. Now before I say anything more about this stretch of road, let me state that I truly understand why this was put in place, what the planners had in mind, and just how well this sort of thing can work. Somehow, there seems to be an abnormal number of drivers who don't understand however. It may just be my bad luck, but every time I've driven through here I've left with my heart trying to exit my chest via my mouth, and the feeling that if I were cat, I'd be one life shorter. A place to be avoided during any sort of peak flow unless you absolutely have to use it.
That being said, it's just a few, out of the many, key intersections that seem to be the worst. Traffic entering from N Lakewood Blvd and the same of Los Coyotes that, usually, leave me wishing I was somewhere else.
