Having grown up right along the Hiway 17 corridor in San Jose, CA that this fellow's talking about, I find his commentary hysterically accurate!

Careful, salty language included, may not be suitable for adults!   Shocked

Enjoy!

I, too grew up on that stretch of freeway.  Don't know what's worse, Hwy 17, or 101 through San Luis Obispo:  short on/off ramps close together, 2 exits sharing one offramp.  All populated by people who don't have a clue how to merge.

Point of clarification -

I did NOT write this piece!   

I found it while looking for something else on CraigsList.  I thought my fellow busnuts would find it entertaining, foul language and all.  Especially those of us who at some point in time earned our living driving a big rig professionally.

I haven't lived in SJ since 1970, but grew up driving this stretch of freeway frequently as my parents lived nearby.  It was a PITA back then, and it still is today.

FWIW & HTH. . .

I loved it.  I used to tow 60' modular homes.  After being run off the road while trying to merge,  I discovered the only way to do it.  Time my merge, turn on blinkers,  wait for three blinks and merge.

Muldoon -

Unfortunately, VTA (San Jose's transit system) doesn't buy high HP equipment - gotta keep the bean counters and environmental wackos happy with gutless wonders purchased with taxpayer subsidies.

Joe -

Still in temporarily in Fresno, as I have been since 1972. . .  Cry

PM me for contact phone, & say hi to Frankie!
