Traffic – AGAIN!!!!

October 28, 2005 at 3:04 pm 3 comments

Last night, I left work on time at 5:00 pm. I had somewhere I was supposed to be at 6:00 pm. about 5 miles from my office, still in Kingsotn. Now, i know Kingston traffic is bad – but I thought that I should be able to make that journey.

Boy was I wrong.

I reached my destination at 8 PM. Yes, 3 hours later. I was not a happy person!

Apparently the raods are still really bad to get over to Portmore – a satellite community of Kingston. And as a result, everyone is looking for other routes etc – so everywhere is clogged up. How ridiculous.

The thing that amuses me is all these people who complain about Portmore traffic and say they have to buy themselves a very nice, expensive car to drive in as they are in traffic so much. I wonder if anyone has ever pointed out to them that if they bought a cheap car, they could use the money they saved to buy a house in an area of Kingston much closer to work and hence wouldn’t spend their lives in traffic. Hmmmm.

    Three hours in traffic? Please, please tell me it’s not like this all the time.

    That’s almost like from here to Miami…it’s a 4 hour flight.

    yup, 3 hours. Not usually like that… but it’s becoming that way more often. And if I had turned right instead of left when I left the office, I could have got to Portland in that length of time!
