Vancouver is definitely one of the coolest places to live, but the problem is a lot of people think so. This is what traffic at night on Highway #1 looks like if you were to look at the highway from an overpass and keep your eyes open for 10 seconds. Being a city of bridges, generally no matter when you're planning on going into or coming out of town, you have some sort of gridlock to deal with. Or facing the conundrum of where on earth to park the car that gets you downtown when you need to go downtown is another pitfall. And soon there's tolls coming on the new Port Mann bridge. No such thing as a free ride.
I've driven by this sign hundreds of times, and it still makes me laugh as much as it did the first time I ever saw it. Either I am entertained with childish jokes really easily, or the City of Chilliwack really did pick a ridiculous name for this road.
You know those miniature scale models of cityscapes that architects create in order to help them sell a building project? Well, this isn't one of those despite it looking like one... to me anyhow. I took this photo of the actual city through the front windshield while crossing over False Creek in Vancouver. Now if only I could figure out how to make photos of money look real enough to use to buy one of the condo units pictured here!
... butt obviously I must be wrong since some municipalities have to resort to naming roads like the below. I wonder if it's a dead end street? Or maybe a one way street? One thing about this road name is endless - the jokes and puns.
The tow truck driver who transported this guy's vehicle to the local repair shop in Langley said you'd never believe it, but guess how the front tire ended up like that? He drove over a pothole. Any pothole that can snap a wheel and the front suspension is no pothole. That's more like an abyss in the road, and most of us don't have The Dukes of Hazzard's General Lee to jump such road hazards.
