Article on traffic ovals.

So Bran (I like the irony of the name "Bran") includes a quote from the original article that is massively insulting to those of us who live in DC:

"The games I’m worried about include lane-changing and traffic-dodging. There’s nothing like these traffic ovals in D.C., and it would certainly take a while for travelers to adjust to them — assuming they ever do."

You can't have it both ways, Bran--DC as one of the smartest cities in the nation, evidenced by a list you posted yourself, and DC as a place with drivers too stupid to learn. 


  1. After all he is better than any one he speaks to.

  2. He uses a very neutral term "travelers" to limit the amount of knee-jerk comments that MD/VA/DC/non-local-who-never-encountered-ovals driver, cyclist, or pedestrian evoke. Pretty sly, but of course he meant DC drivers.

  3. Also, "Bran" makes me think of "Game of Thrones" as well as being regular.
