Although the definition for Express means "to convey", I often associate the word with speed or convenience" - such as in "American Express" or "Federal Express" or even the express lane on the freeway or supermarket checkout.
I find it ironic that an "Express" would hold up the line of cars.
I couldn't take a picture of the vehicle in front of the line as I wasn't directly behind it. It wasn't a big deal really. Eight cars driving 20 on a 45 road is no big deal. After all, the daily traffic in Salt Lake - which accounts for more than 8 to 10 cars - is a big deal. 8 - 10 cars would be neighborhood traffic, but not a main road.
I don't think I would have thought that much about it had I been in Salt Lake, but 8 backed up cars is quite heavy traffic for MC - so I thought there was a bus making stops and possibly picking up students. But I finally got a glimpse of the truck pulling trailer. My view was the back of the trailer which read:
I laughed. Had it been in Salt Lake, I can guarantee you that most drivers would have been stressed - but then again in Salt Lake, one has the option of driving around - which they normally do at high speeds flipping off or honking at the lead driver who is slowing everybody down.
Between 2:30 to 3:00 after school is definitely the heaviest I ever see with traffic in this area. And still, it is less traffic than even the quietest streets in Salt Lake. I like that!
